The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 has long been in the works and tech fans have been waiting for the upcoming device. The current Surface Pro 4 has received great reviews. However, fans are definitely excited for the next generation of the device. The recent Surface Pro 5 rumors will surely make tech enthusiasts even more excited as the upcoming 2-in-1 device is rumored to support eSIM technology.
