Rumor has it that Microsoft will unveil the Surface Pro 5 at the Mobile World Congress 2017, which is happening from February 27 to March 2, 2017. However, tech enthusiasts and fans should not be disappointed as the MWC 2017 will be a key event in the build up of the Surface Phone launch.

Although Microsoft has not made an official statement yet, it is said that the technology brand will release the latest version of its Surface Pro in spring next year. After all, the current version of the device, the Surface Pro 4, has gotten the nod of the consumers - thanks to its impressive specs and features. A longer battery life, Surface Pen, and detachable display are also expected from Microsoft Surface Pro 4's predecessor. "The digital revolution is changing the traditional workplace environment, making us more reliant on our peers to share knowledge and work together; while more people are working remotely and need to be productive from anywhere", Microsoft said in a blog post, adding, "And, the workforce demographic is shifting towards millennials who are more collaborative, multi-task more, and use multiple devices". Other reports claim that the device will house Intel's Kaby Lake processors, so for now, there is still no specific processor attached to the Surface Phone. According to Forbes, with Surface Pro 5, Microsoft will likely to match specifications the current Pro4 is having especially with its 16GB of RAM and up to a 1TB of storage.

While earlier rumors suggested a 2016 release date for the much anticipated Microsoft Surface Phone, there has been a shift recently, especially after the tech giant launched a website for Microsoft partners and third parties to arrange meetings for the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017 (MWC 2017), which is scheduled to run from February 27 to March 2, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. Although the tech giant has had a torrid time with its previous-generation Windows Phone but the company is tipped to make a strong comeback in the market with the help of its speculated Surface Phone.
