The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is the most anticipated device at this time. The latest speculation about the 2-in-1 device is that it will sport the Surface Dial from massively successful Surface Studio.

Surface Pro 5 release date and features. Last month, the company had removed the Surface Pro 3 on the US Microsoft Store website and listed it as 'out of stock' on the UK website. In addition, the tech company has been announcing sales for their Surface products starting in the second half of last year with the most recent sale focused on huge discounts for the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book.

The Surface Book is now priced at US$200 cheaper at US$1,299 from US$1,499. The i3 model of the Surface Pro 4 is now only US$699 which is also the same price for the Surface Pen. The Surface Pro 4 i5 model, on the other hand, is priced at US$1,049 from what used to be US$1,199.

The massive sale is the Redmond-based tech giant most likely trying to clear out stocks to make room for a next-generation device. This along with the confirmation of the Kaby Lake processor going into production means that the release of the Surface Pro 5 could just be around the corner.

Aside from the Intel Kaby Lake process, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is expected to feature up to 16 gigabytes of RAM. This combination will enable a boost in performance as well as battery life. According to a report from Forbes, the device could possibly even outperform the latest MacBook Pro from Apple.

The device could also possibly feature a next-generation rechargeable Surface Pen and support for the Surface Dial. The Surface Dial was initially unveiled with the Surface Studio, an all-in-one desktop computer from the tech company.

Microsoft continues to be mum about the Surface Pro 5's release date. However, all signs are now pointing to a release date that's possibly sooner than much later.
