Microsoft’s Surface 3 Full Specification

By | March 31, 2015

Here is a full details of the new Surface 3 and after will be a table presenting the specification and profile of the Surface 3 in a brief.


Specification Details

  1. Good processor for mobile devices.

The Surface 3 runs an Intel (INTCTech30) chip designed for high-end tablets called the Atom x7. The advantages to the switch are twofold: full Windows (see No. 3) and a mix of power and battery efficiency that you’d expect from a mobile processor.

  1. Has the micro-USB port for common smart phones.

The Surface 3 forgoes the magnetic charger that other Surfaces sported in favor of a micro-USB port that every non-Apple mobile device uses for charging.

  1. HD front and back cameras.

The 8-megapixel rear camera and the 3.5 mexapixel front camera are both capable of shooting 1080p HD video.

  1. It has super-bright keyboards.

True to Microsoft’s target student audience, the keyboards come in some bright, trendy colors aimed at a younger generation. They come in a bright tomato red, a darker burgundy, light blue, and purple. Those come in addition to the slate gray and dark blue that professionals like.

  1. screen size – 10in.

Similar to the Surface Pro 3 (but unlike other previous versions of the Surface), the Surface 3’s screen has a 3:2 aspect ratio. That makes it a little less ideal for watching HD video but way better for reading and writing when you hold it vertically.

  1. Good battery life.

Battery life is tricky to measure, but Microsoft says the Surface’s battery should be able to get you through a day of normal use. Microsoft claims the battery is large enough to let you watch 10 hours of video on a single charge.

  1. Comes with a pen.

The Surface Pen works on both Surface Pro 3 and the Surface 3. It has a nice weight and thickness to it, and though you can’t store it in the device, the tradeoff is that it’s far more useful than a stylus.

  1. It has a kickstand that clicks into three different positions.

The Surface’s kickstand is one of its most standout features, and it gets better in each version. The Surface 3 expands the number of positions to three: desk, lap and couch.

It’s not quite as useful as the Surface Pro 3’s pick-any-angle “continuous hinge,” but it’s more versatile than the one or two positions you got from previous Surfaces.

  1. It runs “full” Windows 8.1, and it’s upgradable to Windows 10.

Unlike previous non-“pro” versions of the Surface, the Surface 3 runs a full version of Windows, meaning it can run all the software that you’re accustomed to running on a PC.

  1. Average weight.

The Surface 3 weighs 1.4 pounds. Even with the type cover, the new Surface weighs less than two pounds.

It’s also super thin: just 0.34 inches, only slightly thicker than an iPad Air.
