Microsoft Surface Tablet Surfaces on the US FCC

Microsoft Surface

Microsoft is gearing up to launch a new Surface tablet. The rumor assumes great significance with the entry on the official US FCC regarding the arrival of the Surface tablet. There are rumors that the Redmond-based software giant is planning to launch a foldable and pocket-friendly Microsoft Surface tablet. However, the chances are bleak since the company is not famous for the development of foldable handsets.

We can expect the launch of a new Surface tablet within the next few days since the device surfaces on the US FCC. Moreover, the filing reveals the fact that the tablet will ship with a charger, which will consume low power. The product package will also carry an external keyboard.

Based on the previous rumors, we can infer that the tablet will ship with a 10-inch display with support for USB Type-C charging functionality. The gadget will be designed using rounded corners with thin bezels. The chances of the addition of a bezel-less display like smartphones are less. Furthermore, the company could release the Surface tablet with Wi-Fi and LTE support.

According to industry analysts, Microsoft should release an affordable Surface tablet to tap students and budget consumers. The currently available models are expensive and beyond the reach of common people. That said, consumers can’t do much work with a small display and a keyboard.

We also have one 2-in-1 convertible in our office but we are not finding it efficient to perform heavy work. You should note that the tablet market has shrunk globally due to the arrival of budget laptops. If you can get a laptop for $150, why you need to spend more than $3000 to buy a new Surface laptop?
