Microsoft has long touted its PixelSense display as superior to any other display in the market. Apart from its high quality output, the display can also detect almost anything that is put on top of it. Now, it would seem that the display will have a new thing to brag about when the Surface Pro 5 arrives. According to reports, the Microsoft Surface Pro will boast two display sizes on its release. One variant, the entry level one, will have a display resolution of 2K or 2736 x 1824 pixel. Meanwhile, the other high-end variant will have a 4K display resolution or 3840×2160 pixels.

From the looks of it, Microsoft is pulling all the stops when it comes to the tablet?s specifications. For Apple, this would be a tough cookie to break.
