Microsoft announces its smallest and most affordable Surface yet

Portable and affordable

Microsoft has just announced new hardware under its Surface line of devices. As you know, Surface tablets, laptops, and desktops are on the premium side, but the new Surface Go is shifting gears by being the most affordable of the bunch — and also the smallest.

The Surface Go from Microsoft is a full-blown Windows 10 tablet aimed at schools, kids, and even the enterprise market. It’s been three years since the last non-Pro Surface tablet, so the introduction of the Surface Go comes at a bit of a surprise for us.

The smallest Surface tablet has a 10-inch PixelSense touch display with a resolution of 1800 x 1200, 3:2 aspect ratio, and pen support. It’s powered by a seventh-generation Intel Pentium Gold processor (haven’t heard about Pentium in a long time) with up to 8GB of memory and up to 256GB of storage.

The tablet itself has a single USB-C port for 4K video out and data, microSD card reader, a proprietary Surface Connect port, and a headphone jack. It also has an 8-megapixel rear shooter and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with support for Windows Hello.

The body of the tablet is still made of magnesium and is designed like other Surface tablets, including the adjustable kickstand. It also has front-facing stereo speakers and Dolby Audio. The tablet’s battery is rated to last for nine hours on a single charge.

The new Surface Go will be available in early August 2018 starting at just US$ 399 for the tablet and US$ 99 for the detachable keyboard. It’s now available for pre-order in North America, Europe, and Australia, while Asia will follow suit in the coming weeks. An LTE model will arrive later this year.

Microsoft’s new tablet practically battles Apple’s newest and cheapest iPad, and it’s definitely more affordable than any of the iPad Pro tablets. Compared to the iPads though, the Surface Go runs a full version of Windows 10 (in S-mode) and not just a mobile operating system.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 leaked render shows slim bezels, no home button

Samsung is not giving up on Android tablets

Published

When we think about tablets, we instantly think of iPads because Apple practically dominates this market. But, there are still a few Android-powered tablets that deserve recognition, especially since Samsung’s very own Galaxy Tab series is finally getting a new model.

The Galaxy Tab S3’s successor showed itself through what looks like an official render that has been leaked to Android Headlines. We are well aware of the Galaxy Tab S4‘s presence through certification websites, but this is the first time we finally get to look at its design.

The first things you’ll notice are the relatively thinner side bezels when compared to previous Samsung tablets. They now appear proportional to each other, but the usual physical home button and capacitive keys are nowhere to be seen. Because of that, we’re now questioning if the Galaxy Tab S4 will have a fingerprint reader somewhere.

Specs-wise, the tablet is rumored to be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor and sport a 10.5-inch 16:10 Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1600 resolution. Memory and storage configuration could be 4GB and 64GB, while the battery capacity is at 7300mAh. It might also have 12-megapixel rear and 7-megapixel front cameras.

The tablet runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with speculated support for Samsung DeX.

There is still no confirmation when the tablet is getting announced, but the August 24 date on the screen of the leaked render somehow points to a pre-IFA 2018 launch.

Mi Pad 4 is the newest iPad Mini clone from Xiaomi

Android tablets are still alive

Published

Xiaomi didn’t just debuted their first budget phone with a notch, but they also announced a new tablet. If you’re still in the market for an Android-powered slate, you’re in luck because the Chinese company now offers the Mi Pad 4.

The Mi Pad 4 is the update to last year’s Mi Pad 3, which is basically Xiaomi’s line of Android tablets that rivals the Apple iPad Mini. For starters, the Mi Pad 4 has an 8-inch Full HD display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Despite the large display size, Xiaomi claims that the tablet is still usable with one hand thanks to the reduced side bezels.

Inside the tablet is a Snapdragon 660 processor, a decent upgrade from the predecessor’s MediaTek processor. It’s paired with up to 4GB of memory and up to 64GB of storage.

Camera-wise, there’s no dual-camera setup since this is a tablet and users (supposedly) won’t primarily use a tablet for taking photos. When there’s the need though, it’s got a 13-megapixel rear shooter and a 5-megapixel selfie camera with facial recognition.

A 6000mAh battery gives life to the tablet and supports a relatively fast charging rate of 5V/2A. Of course, the tablet runs MIUI on top of Android.

The Mi Pad 4 will come in two variants: Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi+LTE. The Wi-Fi version comes with 2×2 Wi-Fi MIMO radios and Bluetooth 5.0, while the LTE variant gets additional cellular data support and GPS.

The Wi-Fi only variant has a price tag of CNY 1,099 for the 3GB+32GB configuration (US$ 170) while the 4GB+64GB is priced at CNY 1,399 (US$ 215). The LTE version only comes in a 4GB+64GB configuration and is priced at CNY 1,499 (US$ 230).
