Amidst rumors and speculations that have been going around about Microsoft's Surface Pro 5, the company has remained silent about it. However, it is believed that the rumored tablet might be launched between the months of March and June, which would be the probable timeline that Intel will be launching its next generation chipset dubbed as the Kaby Lake.

It was previously reported that the tablet was actually set to be revealed this fall, but Microsoft might have thought that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be more powerful and a whole lot faster if they will be waiting for Intel's Kaby Lake chip which is expected to perform better as compared to its predecessor, the Skylake. Moreover, the tech giant is also waiting for its Redstone 2 update for its Windows 10 which tech analysts consider as the operating system's fourth milestone.

Nevertheless, there are some who are speculating that the Surface Pro 5 might be launched later this year in celebration of Windows 10's anniversary, which came out July last year.

Meanwhile, fans have been making wild guesses on what will be the new features of the much-awaited tablet. It is said that the Surface Pro 5 might don a rechargeable stylus, not to mention that the tablet might also be considered a gaming device since it was reported that it might be lodged with a powerful graphics processing unit. However, it is not yet known if Microsoft will be availing of the services of NVIDIA or Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) for the graphics component of the device.

In addition, the device will be fused with a USB Type-C for quicker transfer of files and whatnot. Having said this, the tablet might have a quick charge feature that would greatly lessen the charging time. It's also reported that it might sport a 4K display to be reinforced by the latest version of the Gorilla Glass from Corning.
