Microsoft Surface Pro 5 specs, release date rumors doing the rounds as Surface Pro 4 power beats competitors

Surface Pro 5 is not expected till October 2016. Nonetheless it doesn’t mean that rumors about its eventual arrival and specs will not be doing the rounds in the days to come.

The Surface Pro 4 that was introduced in the market some four months ago is still among the hottest selling machines in the market. On the other hand Microsoft seems to be doing to further promote the tablet in the market.

Merely last month the software giant came out with even better version of the Surface 4 in the market. Nonetheless there are some rumors doing the rounds that the current version of the tablet remains low when it comes to juice. Many people on social media have been complaining about the power issue haunting the users. A user of Surface Pro while writing on Reddid has made complaints.

My sp4 managed a pathetic 3:26 before dying which seems a fair bit lower than what I should be getting.”

He is not the only one talking in this manner. There are many others too. Reports suggest that one of the things that was making the battery life of the Surface Pro 4 worse was the fact that when put into Sleep Mode, the battery depleted. The issue was first reported by Windows Central on October 29, a little more than a week after the Surface Pro 4 was released. However, according to Ars Technica, the issue has finally been fixed.

Another user while talking about it goes on to add, “Microsoft has released a firmware update to the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book that, at long last, fixes significant power management and sleep bugs that saw Microsoft’s latest systems draining their batteries and getting extremely hot when they should have been in ultra low power mode.”
