Microsoft Surface Book Amazing Features

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) has a new lease on innovation and the ancient firm is now in tech news as much as new and nimble tech startups.

It's not a secret that Windows Phone is not doing very well right now, and the most recent statistics put the platform at less than 1 percent market share, with Microsoft believed to be focusing exclusively on a potential Surface Phone flagship device, letting the rest of the ecosystem in the hands of partners.

Because of the positive feedback from the consumers on the first Surface Book, a lot of people are really looking forward for the release of Microsoft's Surface Book 2; however, it was recently reported that the company pushed back the laptop's release due to major tweaks and upgrades. Instead, it's going full-fledged PC with an AIO.

Microsoft is also reportedly preparing to launch a trio of Surface AIO devices. To start with, the Surface Book might be coming out with revamped internals such as native support for USB 3.1 and new graphics interface for 3D and 4K graphics.

"The space allocated for Microsoft's unique fulcrum hinge bothered some owners on aesthetic grounds".

As for the Surface all-in-one desktop PC lineup, Windows Central says Microsoft is testing three models: a 21 inch, 1080p version and models with 24 inch and 27 inch, 4K displays. Earlier Microsoft had promised 9 hours of playback last time; therefore, it may go up to 7 hours of battery life.

The Redmond firm did not detail what new features are planned for the next update, which is rumoured to drop to Windows 10 users before spring 2017. However, few sources claim that the new Surface AIO will be released before the end of the third quarter of 2016. Existing Surface Books have an unsightly gap.The redesign will allow the display and keyboard to sit flush and closed against each other when the lid to the Surface Book is closed. However, bad news leaks out and travels faster than good news; hence, the fact that we haven't heard anything about the Surface phone suggest that all is still well.
