Consumers who have been waiting for the arrival of Microsoft Surface Pro 5 may need to extend their patience further as the previously rumored 2016 release date might not happen anymore.

According to a report by Yibada, Microsoft is yet to unveil the update to Windows 10.

Pending the availability of Redstone 2, the upcoming biggest upgrade to Windows 10, the highly-anticipated portable computer would not be around as well.

Accordingly, such update is of high importance considering that it is expected to bring about exceptional changes by way of adding new capabilities to the operating system while enhancing the existing features found in the predecessors of new device.

Given the anticipated enhancement via Redstone 2, the report claimed in its gathered rumors that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 model would be the "best way to showcase" of how "compelling" Windows 10 would eventually become.

Apart from the speculated reason behind the delay of the upcoming model's arrival was the release of Intel's Kaby Lake, the preferred processing chip of Microsoft for its top-of-the-line products.

 Based on the report, the successor of Sky Lake would only be commercially ready during the last part of 2016, which makes it impossible for Microsoft to incorporate it right away into the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 unit to meet the rumored 2016 release date.

However, despite the fact that consumers may need to wait a little longer, they are guaranteed of an awesome-performing portable device from the American company.

With Redstone 2 and Kaby Lake coupled with Ultra HD 4K display and USB 3.1, users would reportedly enjoy the benefits of having decided to wait for the coming of Microsoft Surface Pro 5, rumors pointed out.
