Buy Surface Pro 4 as Surface Pro 5 won't release till mid

Why is Microsoft delaying the release of the Surface Pro 5?

Surface Pro 5 has always been the talk of the town ever since rumors from Microsoft's supply chain hinted at a possible 2016 release. The Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book have done really well in the market, which is why the company is preparing to launch the sequels. Add to that a report from ZDNet that claims the new Surface Pro iteration won't be out until spring next year. A year ago it was Microsoft taking the lead with the Surface Pro 4, and its sequel will be coming in 2017 at a time when there will be no major competitors to equal it. Well, popular Windows expert-writer Mary Jo Foley has suggested that Microsoft intends to use Intel's next-gen Kaby Lake processors, which will be arriving not before the end of this year.

Moreover, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is also reported to be getting a new Surface Pen.

Because of this, Microsoft is even postponing the release of the Microsoft Surface Book 2, the Redstone 2 and even the long-rumored Microsoft Surface Phone.

Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is a 2-in-1 detachable device which will sport a screen and will have a better resolution when compared to the last version.

As far as the prices are concerned, we won't be seeing steep launch prices and you could expect the prices to be at the same levels as Surface Pro 4 when it was initially released.

Another rumor says that the Surface Pro 5 might get a fingerprint sensor onboard.

According to rumors, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is expected to come with a screen size of 13.3 inches. The current Surface Pen is powered by either a Triple-A or button cell battery.

Aside from Skylake processor from Intel and Redstone 2, the devices will reportedly pack an improved battery life as the Surface Pro 4's battery juice is worth 5 hours and 15 minutes of videos. This feature is nearly confirmed as Microsoft's patent for a rechargeable stylus is already spotted on the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office website. Chances are, just like Surface Pro 4, the device will start at $899. But will Surface Pro 5 do justice to the Surface Pro legacy?
