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.
- Good processor for mobile devices.
The Surface 3 runs an Intel (INTC, Tech30) 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
