Surface Pro Images Leak in Advance of Microsoft Shanghai Event

Apparently when it said there would be no Surface Pro 5, it meant it.


It appears the new Surface Pro will be called just that, with no numeral. And new images have leaked showing the upgraded tablet/laptop (laplet? tabtop?) will be slimmer and a bit more streamlined than its numbered predecessor.

The images, dumped by @evleaks, reveals slightly rounder edges and no USB-C port, but it is a unit that looks vastly unchanged from the Surface Pro 4. The big changes, however are supposed to be internal, with a new Intel Kaby Lake processor, which should enhance battery life and offer support 4K video encoding.

Microsoft is expected to take the official wraps off the new unit at an event in Shanghai on May 23.

The company showed off the new Surface Laptop earlier this month, boasting a Kaby Lake Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of SSD storage, a 13.5" PixelSense display with 3.4 million pixel screen, and 14.5 hours of battery life. It has up to 1TB PCIe SSD on the motherboard, although older tech ports USB Type-A and mini-DP.  It will have an Alcantara fabric-lined keyboard and come installed with Windows 10S. It is set to hit the market on June 15 for $999.
