Microsoft's 'Surface Pro 5' leaks ahead of official announcement

If you're a fan of Microsoft's Surface Pro line of devices, and have been waiting for a new Surface Pro since the Surface Pro 4 was released back in 2015, it looks like you may soon be in luck. A new leak from VentureBeat has taken the wraps off what appears to be the successor to the Surface Pro 4, simply called "Surface Pro" and sporting a design not much different from the Pro 4.

The new Surface Pro appears to very much be a minor release, sporting an extremely similar design to the Surface Pro 4, but with updated internals and specifications bringing it up to par with other products being released in 2017. Outside of renders, not much else about the new Surface Pro has been revealed, with VentureBeat saying they'll have more to report on regarding specifications on Monday.

Alongside the Surface Pro renders, a number of new Type Cover and Surface Pen renders have leaked too, revealing new colors that are similar, but not identical to that recently announced for the Surface Laptop. Apart from new colors, it appears the Surface Pro accessories remain the same as the Surface Pro 4 accessories.

It's highly suspected that Microsoft will officially unveil a new Surface Pro at its China hardware event next week, alongside other announcements. The event will not be livestreamed however, soyou'll have to wait for an on-demand version of the event, or stay tuned to Windows Central as we'll have coverage on the event as it happens.
