The latest Microsoft Surface lineup, as of now, has two branches under it, a 2-in-1 and a notebook family. The notebooks are the ones that come with a detachable screen. If the current reports are believed to be true, then another branch of ultra-mobile devices are going to be added to the Microsoft Surface series.
Microsoft has recently filed a patent. The portable device does look like a digital book with hinges. It consists of two halves that pivot around a central hinge that allows it to be turned into a tablet. The device, if required, can also be repositioned to work as a notebook with the help of the hinge. One half of the screen can be converted into a virtual keyboard and trackpad while making the other half of the device act as a screen.
Windows 10 comes with both desktop and tablet mode. Though Microsoft is yet to officially announce what this new device would run on, this feature of Windows 10 can turn out to be really useful particularly for this device.
There’s no official announcement regarding the specification of the device as well. The ultra-portable device is reported to contain Snapdragon chipset which is designed particularly for hybrids like these. The Snapdragon chipsets can deliver up to 22 hours of battery life in these devices.
