Surface Pro 4 successor leaks ahead of imminent unveiling

19 May 2017

Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 laptop-tablet hybrid is getting officially refreshed next week at a special event on Monday, May 23 in Shanghai, China.

You can see more images of the Surface Pro on VentureBeat. Given the fact that it's only a refreshed version of its predecessor, it's a little odd that Microsoft went for the simple Surface Pro moniker instead.

Microsoft is holding an event in China on May 23 where they might release the Surface Pro 4 a.k.a the Surface Pro 4 refresh. Basically, the upcoming tablet is not a complete revamp of the Surface Pro 4 but more of an internal upgrade. The color of the accessories will be similar to the color options the recently launched Surface Laptop arrived in.

This device includes few accessories in it such as a pen and a keyboard. On the specifications front, the device is expected to come with 7th generation Intel processors which will result in improved performance and battery life.

We know what you're thinking: this looks a lot like the current Surface Pro 4 that was launched in 2015. These accessories will be available in multiple colors and should feature slightly different designs as opposed to the Surface Pro 4's accessories.

Microsoft has not confirmed the launch of the new tablet for this date.

The executive also said that Microsoft wants to deliver meaningful and "experiential change that makes a huge difference in product line", and not just slapping on the latest processor. Interestingly, in a reply to a user's comment on Twitter, Evan Blass revealed that the company might also be launching a Surface Phone during the event.
