Not too long ago, Microsoft Surface Pro 3 went on sale in global markets, but its just the i5 model, with the remaining ones set to hit retail next week.
According to a new rumor, Microsoft is working on the next-generation Surface 3 tablet, which is expected to hit the retail shelves in October.
Microsoft is expected to launch a 10.6-inch new version of Surface in October 2014, with production of components to begin in August and volume production of the tablet to kick off in September, according to source with Taiwan-based supply chain makers.
While Microsoft launched the 12-inch Surface Pro 3 in May, the 10.6-inch new Surface is slimmer and lighter and expected to have better sales performance than the former, the sources indicated.
The new report surfaced from Digitimes, claiming that production of components is set to kick off in August, with the volume production starting in September. If it’s true, we can expect the new tablet to launch in October, a similar timeframe when Microsoft launched the Surface 2 last year as well.
The details about the Surface 3 are scarce, but it’s said to be lighter and slimmer than its predecessor, with improved performance as well.
