The fact Microsoft is working on a Surface Pro 5 will surely come as no surprise, as the 2-in-1 has propelled the brand to a billion dollar undertaking for Redmond.
The profile in question has since been amended, but h0x0d grabbed a screencap which describes the Surface Pro 5 as a "device of the future."
Additionally, the LinkedIn profile talks about Project NEON, which we know to be Microsoft's upcoming design language refresh across all Windows 10 devices.
We expect the Surface Book 2 and Surface Pro 5 to be outed sometime in the Spring, to coincide with, and possibly showcase the Windows 10 Creators Update. The Surface Pro 4 is well over a year old at this point, and has been receiving a few generous price cuts lately, which generally indicates new hardware is on the way.
The Surface Pro 5 will no doubt be rocking a Kaby Lake CPU upgrade, and will probably sport all other sorts of boosts to screen resolution, RAM, and beyond. Microsoft has also been patenting all sorts of new pen features, including a rechargeable pen dock, and we could see them debut alongside the Surface Pro 5.
A Surface Pro 5 "render" has also been making the rounds, found on the official French Microsoft News website from 2016. But the render in question is identical to Surface Pro 4 renders used back in 2015, leading me to think the file name in question could simply be a typo.
Either way, it shouldn't be too long until we get to see the Surface Pro 5 for real.
