Specifications Surface 2 and the date of the official presentation
In the network appeared new details about the next version of Surface RT. First, Microsoft will remove the prefix «RT» from the name of the tablet, so it will be simply called Surface 2. In addition, the new model will look almost as good as it predecessor.
In the bowels of the hull Surface 2 will be installed Tegra 4 processor combined with 4 GB of RAM. Model includes adjustable two-position kickstand, and a 10.6-inch display with a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). As for battery life, the battery of the new device can work up to 8 hours – as the previous generation, but keep in mind that the new version of the tablet will have a higher resolution screen (Surface RT it is 1366×768), so it’s a noticeable improvement.
The thickness of Surface 2 will be 9.3 mm, and the tablet will weigh 676 grams (all like the Surface RT). There is no doubt that Surface 2 will be a major update to the original tablet, but you can’t ignore the fact that one of the weaknesses of the Surface RT, released along with Windows 8 in October 2012, in addition to marketing communications, was the cost. So very interesting, at what level the price is set for the second generation «surface», because mainly this will depend on the success of the new tablet on the market.
Now, with regard to the availability of a new device. Its release date remains unknown, but Microsoft has already sent out invitations to the press conference, which will take place on 23 September in new York.
Obviously, this day will be presented the new Surface – Surface 2 with Windows RT 8.1 and Surface 2 Pro with Windows 8.1. In the past you will use a processor from Intel with the new Haswell architecture. If you believe the rumors, both tablets will be available in black and white.
