Microsoft hosted an event in China last May 23 where it revealed the new Microsoft Surface Pro. The Surface Pro is the successor to Surface Pro 4 and not the much-awaited Surface Pro 5.

TechRadar reported that Microsoft released its new product last May 23, 2017, in China at an event. The product is known as the Microsoft Surface Pro, while the Surface Pro 5 won't be making any appearance according to the statement of Panos Panay, the Surface Vice President.

However, just to make it clear for those who gets confused, the Microsoft Surface Pro is the successor to Surface Pro 4, but it is not the Surface Pro 5 which everyone is waiting. Somehow, there could possibly be the continuation of the numbered sequel in the coming years.

Consequently, according to Express, even though Microsoft Surface Pro had been unveiled, its best new feature won't be easily available and would take some months to wait. The report was confirmed by the company itself.

The Microsoft Surface Pro will run with the fifth-generation of the Windows 10 along with 800 new parts compared with the Surface Pro 4. Furthermore, the first shipments date will begin on June 15, 2017, at the price starting from $799 for the model with 128GB hard drive, 4GB of RAM and running with Intel Core m3 processor.

Additionally, for the Microsoft Surface Pro with 128GB hard drive, 4GB of RAM and Intel Core i5 processor, its price would be $999. For a 245GB hard drive, 8GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i5 processor, the price would be $1,200. There are other model options that come with the Microsoft Surface Pro, but remember that when the specs get higher, it's directly proportional to the price.

Now, the Microsoft Surface Pro is now ready for pre-order, for an almost two weeks waiting time for the official shipment. Keep in mind that the Surface Pro comes with a separated Surface Pen and Surface Keyboard that stays on its original price.
