Microsoft is reportedly working on a new Surface-branded Windows 10 tablet with Intel chipset and it could be unveiled this month. It appears that the affordable Surface tablet has just passed the FCC, suggesting that the launch is imminent.

If you needed proof we were one step closer to the Microsoft’s affordable Surface tablet imminent launch, the Windows 10-powered tablet only just recently stopped by the FCC. So we expect to hear more about the tablet — or at least some kind of an announcment— in the coming weeks.

It appears that the Surface tablet has a 24-watt power supply and it features a 7.66 v battery. The cheaper Surface could hit the market as early as the second half of 2018.

What’s more important to note is that the devices don’t typically appear in FCC listings until they’re tested and ready to launch.

A report from Bloomberg revealed that the Surface tablet will have 10-inch screens and more rounded edges. Microsoft is aiming these devices at the education market and the FCC listing suggests that the software giant is trying to get this cheaper Surface tablet on the market before back-to-school in September.

The Windows 10 tablet may come with a standard USB-C port and it will offer up to 9 hours of battery life. The device will be using Intel chipsets rather than ARM.
