The vice president of Microsoft, Panos Panay, who is also the creator of the Surface announced the event on twitter with the hashtag “#Surface.” Taking a closer look at the tag, and coupling that with the attendance of Panay could mean that the company is ready to reveal the Surface Pro 5.

There surely won’t be a lot of dramatic differences between the upcoming Surface Pro 5 and its predecessor. That according to the well-known tech journalists Paul Thurrott, the device is probably going to switch to the Kaby Lake, Intel’s processor, but will ensure that its proprietary power connector is kept intact.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has shown off its Surface Laptop – the $999 laptop running on the new Windows 10 S operating system.
