The next gen laptop/tablet hybrid is rumored to feature Intel's latest 7th generation Kaby Lake processing chip which is believed to double the efficiency of the device.
The upcoming Microsoft hybrid laptop is expected to come preloaded with Windows 10 Professional Redstone 2 operating system, a 4K Ultra HD display, AMD or Nvidia Pascal GPU, 16 GB of RAM, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, a Surface Pen and Thunderbolt 3. Reports are that the Surface Pen will get a major design overhaul with the stylus to come bundled with a rechargeable battery unit onboard. It is rumored that the laptop-tablet hybrid will get rolled out in 2K and 4K display models.
As far as Microsoft Surface Pro 5 price is concerned, the tablet is expected to cost $899 for the base model and $1,599 for the high end model. Readers are advised to take the information with a grain of salt as nothing yet have been announced by the makers.
