06 May 2017, USA:
Microsoft is all set to launch Surface Pro 5 in the grand event that will take place in Shanghai on 23rd May 2017.
According to a recent Business Insider report, Microsoft has already issued invitations for an event it is planning to hold in Shanghai on May 23. The news site then took Microsoft hardware Chief Panos Panay’s recent Instagram post as a hint to what the company will be showcasing at the event. Panay posted a picture of Shanghai and used the hashtag #Surface to tease fans on why they should watch out for the launch event.
Although it’s very likely that the Surface Pro 5 would be unveiled at the Shanghai event, there is still a possibility that the mystery hardware could be something else. On Panay’s post, fans are sharing their thoughts on what could Microsoft be launching at this time of the year. Many are guessing that the tech giant could be finally introducing the long-rumored Surface Phone. There are also fans asking for Surface Book 2, a new Surface Pro tablet and even an 8-inch Surface tablet.
Microsoft Surface Laptop will reportedly include a 13.5-inch PixelSense display and ship in four colors: platinum, burgundy, cobalt blue, and graphite gold. Surface Laptop weighs 2.76lbs, 14.47mm thin at the back, 9.9mm thin at the front, and has 3.4 million pixels. It will feature Alcantara-covered keyboard and Windows 10 S. Last week an inquisitive Microsoft watcher ‘WalkingCat‘ leaked the latest photos and specs through the Twitter account.
