Just like the Wi-Fi models, the Surface 3 with 4G LTE will be available with 2 or 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. It also comes with the option to add a detachable keyboard for full laptop functionality.
To draw more buyers to its successful Surface 3 Pro hybrid tablet, Microsoft has introduced an entry Core i7 version by dropping price. Both will come stocked with Windows 8.1 with the ability to upgrade to Windows 10 for free when it launches. It comes with either 64GB or 128GB of internal memory.
The new model carries all the same specs the Surface Pro 3 has been known for.
Microsoft has announced that it will be launching the 4G LTE-enabled version of the Surface 3 tablet in the United States “in the coming weeks”. Microsoft is planning to offer its Surface tablets commercially at retail stores in France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the U.S, according to company officials.
The major change that can be noted on the Surface Pro 3 after it has taken the firmware update is that it automatically changes from desktop to tablet mode once the keyboard is removed, giving the user an easier and more seamless experience with the device’s universal interface.
The Redmondian company generated $713 million in revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, which is up 44% from the previous quarter.
However, Microsoft remained mum about the details of the upcoming device. The 4th generation Intel Core i7-4650U 1.70 GHz CPU has a Turbo Boos Technology feature that boosts the clock speed of the processor to reach speeds of up to 3.3GHz.
Alternatively if you want an i5 model with 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM it will set you back $999 while the Pro 3 i5 model with 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM is priced at $1,299. It has the same specs as that of the Surface Pro 3 models, only difference is that of its storage capacity. Various reasons were cited to be the cause of the delay like the recent release of a new variant Surface Pro 3 with i7 processor and Surface 3 with 4G LTE.
