The new Surface tablets are said to feature a 10-inch display, rounded edges like an iPad, USB-C connectivity, and a new charging and syncing standard. They're expected to be about 20% lighter than the high-end Surface models and will have around four hours less of battery life. Currently, the Surface Pro can last 13.5 hours on a single charge.
The current professional-oriented Surface Pro lineup starts at $799. Microsoft, which hasn’t finalized its plans, is expected to price the cheapest versions of the new device at about $400. Like the Surface Pro, these models won’t be bundled with the company’s keyboard cover. To go along with the lower-cost device, Microsoft is preparing less-expensive versions of its keyboard cover, stylus and mouse, the people said. The current keyboard cover costs an extra $160, while the new keyboard will be priced a bit lower, they said.
Sources tell the site that Intel will be providing the processor and graphics chips. Multiple models are planed including versions with 64GB and 128GB of storage and LTE connectivity. The tablet will still have a kickstand and will run Windows 10 Pro.
The Surface tablet will likely rival Apple's new 9.7-inch iPad which now features Apple Pencil support and runs iOS 11. The sixth generation iPad starts at $329.
