Microsoft may unveil the second generation version of its Surface devices with 7 to 9 inch Displays at Microsoft’s Build developer conference in late June, according to DigiTimes.
Before the announcement of Microsoft’s official Surface tablet last year, an Xbox Surfaced device came into sight. And it is expected that Xbox and Surface teams have been together for the company’s 7-inch plans. Microsoft has confirmed its affiliation with OEMs to launch smaller and cheaper versions of Windows 8 tablet that will support smaller screen sizes. The leaked 8-inch Acer tablet also approves of the same.
Microsoft’s Build developer conference is scheduled after Intel’s planned Haswell launch on June 3rd and the annual event by Computex where the new devices are announced by OEMs. According to The Verge, Microsoft will update its new Tablets with the latest Intel Haswell chipsets to improve battery life and graphics performance of the same.
With almost a gap of one year after the launch of Surface tablets, the devices and services company, Microsoft has failed to produce more devices and it has been silent for future projects as well. Though rumors by Smartwatch and Surface Phone suggest that Microsoft is focusing on additional devices, the immediate focus for the company appears to be on its 7-inch Surface model only.
