This is a step that is normally taken by retailers when they would like to make shelf space for a new and upcoming product, so to see a device that would eventually be two generations old taken off makes flawless sense that the Surface Pro 5 is about to be released.

And that's your lot for this particular firmware update.

Rumors about the release date of Microsoft's latest 2-in-1 tablet PC, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, still continue to proliferate online amidst the lack of any official announcement from the company.

Simply head to Settings in the Start menu, then click Update & Security, Windows Update, and then select Check for Updates. Sources close to these matters are claiming that the 2-in-1 is going to be announced during the first quarter of 2017, and that's not very far from where we are right now.

You can check out the deal here at the Microsoft Store. A special coupon code allowed users to save up to 15 percent on the 2-in-1 device's low and mid-tier configurations. After revealing a low-tier SKU without the bundled Surface Pen last week, this particular cut is both substantially more aggressive and, yet, a little odd. Also in Australia, the same no-pen configuration was available for AU$450 off!

That $200 discount only applies to two specific Surface Pro 4 models. IDigitalTimes reports that the sale could only last until February 4.

The Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) Surface Pro 5 has been ever present in the market for over a year now. The recent news, coupled with all of the sales, has led everyone to believe that the Surface Pro 5 will be released sooner than expected.

In terms of hardware specifications, there are also other Surface Pro 5 rumors that point to the 2-in-1 hybrid tablet to arrive with a 4K display while running on the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors. Intel has already confirmed that its seventh-generation processor is more advanced than its sixth-generation processor in every aspect imaginable.
