Surface Book 2 is coming, could be announced next month

Microsoft had quite the surprise hit on its hands with its beyond impressive Surface Book, with its successor surely in the development stages - and it could arrive quicker than anticipated, with DigiTimes reporting that Microsoft could make a big change in Surface Book 2.

According to the latest reports, Surface Book 2 might drop the 2-in-1 style with a clamshell-style product - this would mean we might not see Microsoft letting you use Surface Book 2 like a tablet. This is a good and bad thing, as people who use Surface Book as a tablet (at least sometimes) won't like the news - but it's a heavy device, and doesn't bode well in tablet use. As a laptop? Rock solid. Tablet mode? Not so much.

 

Inside, we should see Microsoft beef up the specs of Surface Book 2 with the new Kaby Lake CPU architecture from Intel, with Core i5 and Core i7 offerings - and I'm sure we'll see the use of NVIDIA's awesome GeForce GTX 10 series graphics card, too. The original Surface Book rocked a strange 3000x2000 resolution display, but I'm expecting MS to bump it up to a full 4K display on Surface Book 2.
