Speculation about a Samsung tablet running on Windows 10 first began circulating all the way back in August, when the OS was just starting to appear on new devices. A new report has now leaked a certificate of the gadget, which currently goes by the model number SM-W700.
It’s been a while since Samsung had released a Windows-powered tablet. The new offering has gotten its certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG. It got tested in November this year, which may indicate an early 2016 launch. The document doesn’t give much away in terms of specs, except for the device coming with Windows 10, Wi-Fiac and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.
A listing at Indian import/export site Zauba had hinted that the Samsung tablet would feature a 12-inch display and cost Rs 30088, which will likely change when the unit gets launched. According to GSM Arena, the screen may showcase its visuals through a super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1600p or 3840 x 2400p.
Samsung might sell the gadget with an S Pen stylus, currently seen in its Galaxy Note range of smartphones. It could further fuel its daily activities through a 13nm Intel Core M processor, which will be working in harmony with 4GB of RAM. The South Korean manufacturer has supposedly designed the tablet to be 6.2mm thin and weigh 600g.
The news about the Windows 10 tablet comes just a day after information about an Android-based 8-inch Samsung tablet had surfaced. This device too had received its certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG and was listed under the name SM-T375S. Zauba pegged its price to be around Rs 13585.
