This is the new Microsoft Surface Pro
Everyone wants a Surface Pro 4 update. And even though Surface boss Panos Panay poo-poo’ed the idea of a Surface Pro 5 announcement in next week’s Surface event in Shanghai, China, the rumors refuse to go away.
Maybe Panos is right: there’s no Surface Pro 5, because the refreshed Surface Pro 4 with Kaby Lake chips is simply called the Surface Pro. And we know that because Evan Blass at VentureBeat has just leaked the name and a few images showing what the updated 2-in-1 device looks like.
As expected, the new Surface Pro doesn’t look very much different from the 2015 Surface Pro 4: there’s the 3:2 screen, the multi-position kickstand, the vent along the edges, the USB 3.0, mini-DisplayPort, and Surface Connect terminals, and the familiar Surface Pen that snaps to the side of the display. Even the buttons, cameras, and headphone jack positions look to be the same.
That said, the images do reveal some new things. For one, the updated Surface Pro seems thinner than its predecessor. There’s also a new Type Cover that looks to be wrapped in a blue fabric (alcantara?), much like one of the Surface Laptop offerings. Along with an image of four Surface Pens in black, blue, silver, and burgundy colors, one can reasonably expect new Type Covers with the same colors.
