Microsoft’s Surface 2-in-1 has long been billed as the tablet that can replace your laptop, but the hybrid could soon take aim at traditional slates as well. The company’s purported Surface 4 is rumored to launch next year in two variations: a larger model for maximum productivity, and a palm-sized version built to replace your iPad mini.
Christian Today reports that the next Surface will be available as a 13 to 14-inch device, as well as a smaller 8-inch version that could compete with mainstream Android and iOS tablets. There’s no word on potential specs, but we expect the new devices to have at least the Surface Pro 3’s 2160 x 1440 screen resolution, as well as Intel’s new Core M processors, which are built for small devices.
