Microsoft has today unveiled the upgraded Surface Pro, which features a Kaby Lake CPU, a new Alcantara keyboard and not much else.
The company unveiled the upgraded device at a launch event in Shanghai, China, which it claims is the "lightest" Surface device yet. It has also decided to rename the device simply "Surface Pro", rather than labelling it Surface Pro 5 (or Surface Pro four-and-a-half).
Beyond that, there's not much more to report. Microsoft claims that by sticking in an upgraded seventh generation Intel Kaby Lake CPU it has been able to up the battery life to 13.5 hours.
The new Surface Pro will also ship with the same fabric-covered Alcantara keyboard seen on the Surface Laptop, a feature that has divided opinion, to say the least. This keyboard was previously exclusive to the signature edition Surface Pro Keyboard, but will now be offered as a default option.
Much like the Surface Pro 4 before it, Microsoft's latest Windows 10 hybrid packs a 12.3in display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and 267ppi pixel density, which comes with support for the company's "next generation" Surface Pen, which Microsoft claims is the fastest digital stylus on the market.
The keyboards and an updated Surface Pen will be offered in the new colour scheme adopted by the Surface Laptop, too: Charcoal, Burgundy, Platinum, and Teal.
The new Surface Pro will launch in the UK on June 15, and pricing will start at £799.
The launch of the new Surface Pro comes amid rumours that Apple is preparing to update its MacBook range.
According to reports, the company will take to next month's WWDC trade show to unveil a new MacBook Pro, also featuring Kaby Lake internals, like the Surface Pro, as well as a refresh of Apple's 12in MacBook and an update to the 13in MacBook Air, which hasn't seen an upgrade since 2015.
The prices are also expected to be "upgraded" accordingly.
