Microsoft

announced the successor of the surface pro 4, dropping the numbering from its brand name, the new Microsoft two-in-one is simply called as Surface Pro. The new Surface Pro has been redesigned from the inside-out to give people around 50 per cent more battery life than the Surface Pro 4. Part of this battery life bump can be attributed to the 7th generation Intel Core chipset that now powers the device.
