Microsoft is hosting a Surface event in Shanghai on May 23rd

Could we finally see the Surface Pro 5?


The Surface Laptop isn't the only new piece of hardware Microsoft has coming up. The company sent out invites last night for an event in Shanghai on May 23rd, where it will "show the world what's next." That's pretty cryptic, but a tweet from Microsoft's Surface head, Panos Panay, might have spoiled the surprise a bit.

Our guess? We might finally see a follow-up to the Surface Pro 4, a machine that we love, but is currently stuck with 2015-era hardware. The Surface Pro 5, as we've been referring to it so far, should update the internals to Intel's Kaby Lake CPUs, but we're not expecting much of a design change, according to Paul Thurrott.
