Microsoft’s Surface Pro 5 coming soon

While we’ve heard some rumors around Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 plans, very little has emerged about the Surface Pro 5. Paul Thurrott has now revealed that the Surface Pro 5 will not change the proprietary Surface power connector, and that Microsoft’s next laptop / tablet hybrid will switch to Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processors. Thurrott claims there’s “nothing dramatic” about the Surface Pro 5, which could mean the device is simply a refreshed design with upgraded components.

Retaining the Surface power connector doesn’t necessarily mean that Microsoft won’t opt to switch its DisplayPort on the Surface Pro 5 to a USB-C connection. Microsoft previously committed to ensuring that Surface Pro 3 power adapters, docking stations, and Type Covers would be compatible with the Surface Pro 4, so it’s not surprising to hear the company is likely keeping its Surface power connector. A lack of USB-C at all would be a surprising omission given that the majority of Windows PC makers are moving to the new port on high-end laptops.
