In specs, the device features a 10.8-inch ClearType full-HD Plus (1920 x 1280 pixels) display and runs Windows 8.1 out-of-the-box that Microsoft has confirmed will be upgradeable to Windows 10 from July 29.
The tablet is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core Intel Atom X7-Z8700 processor that can turbo boost up to 2.4GHz. It comes in two variants, 2GB RAM with 64GB storage, and 4GB RAM with 128GB storage, both expandable via external MicroSD card reader. The device houses an 8-megapixel autofocus camera at the rear alongside with a microphone, while it bears a 3.5-megapixel camera at the front.
On the connectivity front, the Surface 3 LTE supports 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Full-size USB 3.0 port, Micro-USB port for charging, Mini DisplayPort, Cover port, and Headset jack. Sensors included are Accelerometer, Proximity, Ambient Light, Gyroscope, and Magnetometer.
A stylus pen is also included, though users will need to purchase it seperately. Battery onboard can last up to 10 hours as claimed by the firm. The Surface 3 LTE pricing is not revealed yet, but we expect it to be more affordable than its senior, the Surface Pro 3.
