A new report has surfaced on the web that claims that Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has just been given an important certification in China clearing the way for sale of the tablet in one of the largest markets in the world.
Surface Pro 5 has now been certified with China Compulsory Certificate which is required for any electronics device imported and sold in the country. The certification means that the Surface Pro 5 is already production ready and that it won’t be long before Microsoft announces it officially. Reports in the local media didn’t reveal much other than the news that the certification has been awarded to Surface Pro 4 successor. [Huge discounts on Surface Pro 4.]
There is an expectation that Surface Pro 5 will have USB-C, but with Thurrott claiming that the tablet will keep its proprietary Surface Connect connector, USB-C might not be happening after all, notes TopExaminer.com
Microsoft has announced an event on May 2, but it most certainly will not be announcing Surface Pro 5 considering that the theme of the event is Education. Reports on various outlets indicate that Microsoft will be launching an education-centric hardware – possibly a low priced Surface Book – and an operating system akin to Google Chrome OS. This brings us to the possibility that the rumoured Windows 10 Cloud could be revealed on May 2.
We expect that Surface Pro 5 will launch at the company’s Build Developer Conference next month. If you can’t wait for Surface Pro 5 why not buy Surface Pro 4 at huge discounts.
