Microsoft's Surface Pro update leaks, expected launch on 23 May

Recently, the popular Evan Blass shared the complete press renders of the alleged Surface Pro 5, showing it from all angles, including the new Surface pen. However, the tablet won't come with this moniker, it will reportedly simply be the Surface Pro, ditching the number.

Of course, VentureBeat's report could be a bit of clever misdirection, with Microsoft set to unveil something truly special and unbelievable at its May 23 conference next week in Shanghai. In fact, it sounds like Microsoft is taking the same tactic with the Surface Pro as Apple did with the iPad this year. At this event, everyone expects the company to reveal the new Microsoft Surface Pro 5. It's at this event that we'll likely see the next Surface Pro as well as a Surface Phone.

Just because Microsoft says there won't be a Surface Pro 5 anytime soon doesn't mean it's going to keep the current models around for the next few years. The upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro may be joining the duo, something that may have to do for now unless something surreal convinces Panay and company to work on a successor.

The detailed specifications, pricing, and availability of the new Surface Pro laptop-class tablet is not yet revealed by any sources. Like the recently announced Surface Laptop, the new Surface Pro won't have any USB-C ports. Rumors were claiming that this device will be unveiled on May 23rd.

What appears to be new additions to this device are its accessories. Since the upcoming Surface Pro does not have unique changes in its appearance, Blass speculates that the real changes will be present inside the device. These colors would be reflected in the device's Surface Pen as well. The accessories for the Microsoft Surface Pro will also launch at the Shanghai event on May 23.
