New patent filing proves Surface Phone's release?

New patent filing proves Surface Phone's release?

Rumors about Microsoft Surface Pro 5 specs, features and release date have been floating around since early past year but since its predecessor, the Surface Pro 4, is doing very well in the market, the company seems to have delayed bringing out the successor.

A Microsoft patent for a device with e-ink dual display has surfaced online and speculations are rife that it could be the next Surface device. This is most likely why the e-paper display will be detachable, rigid and touch-sensitive. As the Surface Pro 5 is Microsoft's 2-in-1 range of Windows 10 devices, the device will feature a screen with a kickstand and a keyboard base, Trusted Reviews reported. Taking in consideration the enthusiasm surrounding the tablet, Microsoft is surely going to generate huge amounts of profits as a result of the device's popularity. This will help the device feature one continuous image in the display.

Trump tells Abe all options on table to handle N. Korea
North Korea has defied the ban, saying it infringes on its sovereign rights to self-defence and the pursuit of space exploration. In addition to the symbolic value, experts pointed out the North also has practical reasons for carrying out the tests.

This new patent would likely eliminate the need for Type Cover accessory that now exists in the "Surface Pro 4".

Microsoft's patent for a "Dual Display Device" shows that one side of the product would have a regular screen, with the other made of e-paper. Fortunately, recent reports have confirmed that Microsoft is set to incorporate the latest Intel Kaby Lake processor in its next iteration of Surface Pro engineered to directly address such a major flaw in the current model of Surface Pro.

It also held that areas with a population up to 20,000 may have liquor vends at a distance of 220 metres from the highways. Amitabh Kant, CEO of NITI Aayog, described the highway liquor ban verdict to affect around 1 million jobs in a tweet.

We think it's safe to say that all of Microsoft's fans are enthusiastic about Surface Pro 5. The patent further explained that the visually static user controls on the e-paper display may include controls for playing music and videos.

Intel Kaby Lake is created to be both faster and more efficient at conserving energy which effectively means a longer-lasting battery life for any device, to use the chipmaker's latest hardware.

However, rumors last month from a supposed former Microsoft employee claimed that the device will "probably" only be released in late 2018 or 2019.
