According to a report published on The Verge today, Microsoft is all ready to announce its next tablet running Windows 8.1 operating system. Microsoft had already done the trade in program for the iPad owners in which users were paid at least $200 which was the part of marketing strategy for the new tablet.

The new tablet will join the Surface line up and it will be called Surface 2. In fact, two new tablets are expected which are Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 that will take over Surface RT and Surface Pro, respectively.

The event will be live tomorrow in New York City at 10:30 AM ET/ 7:30 AM PT. Microsoft will bring out changes to the new Surface tablets at both hardware and software levels.

Surface 2 rumored specifications known till now

As mentioned earlier, Surface 2 will run on the latest version of Windows operating system for ARM based devices i.e. Windows RT 8.1. This new operating system version is bringing out not a major change but lots of minor changes in the performance and battery life. Microsoft has also provided more customization features to the user this time in this OS update.

The hardware is supposed to pack NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 chipset which will be holding processor and graphics processing unit together. The NVIDIA’s chipset isn’t popular as Qualcomm ones but it’s not way behind in terms of performance than any other chipset.

The overall dimensions are expected to get shrink a little bit but the display size will be the same. Thus making more comfortable to hold and use the tablet.

The display is said to support full HD (1080p) resolution and its going to make Surface 2 looks better than any other tablets in the competition.

At last, the battery life is definitely going to be improved and it’s expected to get around at least 9 hours. But Microsoft is also planning to provide a Power Cover accessory that will boost the battery life of the tablet.

Surface 2 Price

So there will be two new tablets in the market by tomorrow running Windows RT 8.1 version. Later, Windows 8.1 will also arrive for PC users.

Microsoft is going to drop down price of Surface tablets this time a little bit than the last year so that users can find one more reason to switch to Surface from iPad.
