Users are anticipating the release of a possible Surface Pro 5 along with a speculated Surface Phone and even a Surface Smartwatch.
According to an article by news and information website Tech Times, fans are expecting a lot from the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. This is due to the fact that the Surface Pro 4 did not get any upgrades whatsoever for the tech giant during the past year.

There have also been leaks alleging that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will come with an upgraded Surface Pen with wireless charging capabilities. This is after news of a patent filed by Microsoft in the previous year.
