Microsoft cheaper Surface tablet presumably hits FCC; could run Pentium chips

05 July 2018 2

A trace found with the FCC filings is giving a strong support to those reports that conveyed Microsoft is planning to launch a cheaper Surface tablet. Series of documents published by the Federal Communications Commission are indicating at the type of device it might be.

The FCC listing shows the model number Model 1824 and there’s a talk of a “portable computing device” as well. The FCC listing doesn’t reveal anything specific or features that could tell us about how the Microsoft Surface could work but there are some indications that convey the device is going to be the cheaper option.

The listing only reveals a low-powered charger, presumably for a smaller Surface device. There aren’t any other hardware details available in the documents that could tell about the presumably cheaper Surface tablet.

Last month we reported that Microsoft has some cheaper tablets, Surface laptops, Hololens and more in works that could launch in the second half of this year and now this FCC listing is acting as a big evidence here.

Furthermore, some sources to WinFuture.de have said that the cheaper Surface tablet might run on Intel’s less powerful Pentium chips. Previous reports have conveyed that this tablet could feature a 10-inch display, rounded corners, UDB 3 for charging, a weight that’s 20% lighter, and a price of $400.

According to the source, the cheaper version of this smaller Surface will have an Intel Pentium Silver N5000, and the more expensive variant of the same either come with the Intel Pentium Gold 4410Y or the Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y.

The appearance of the device in the FCC reflects that the company will introduce the Surface tablet soon. An appearance at the FCC listing clearly indicates that it’s being tested and ready to launch. So, we may see this Microsoft’s cheaper version of the Surface tablet in coming months or so.
