Looking back at history, Samsung launched a slew of tablets running Windows OS under the brand name “Ativ.” The devices under this brand name ran Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 in its heyday. In addition to the tablets and smartphones, Samsung also released laptops and desktops under Ativ. However, there has been no new release for a long time now. But a new report from China says Samsung is working on a Windows 10 tablet.
According to China’s Weibo, a 12-inch display clad Samsung tablet is in the works. This time around, Google’s Android OS will not be part of the slate. Instead, Microsoft’s Windows 10 will reportedly be running the software side of things, straight out of the box. However, there is no information available on the launch or release date at this point.
Speaking of rumored specifications, G For Games says, the 12-inch unnamed Samsung tablet will reportedly sport a Super AMOLED touchscreen. Under the hood, the slate will come powered by a 14 nm Intel Core M processor and will be backed by a cool 4 GB of RAM configuration.
The icing on the cake, however, is the presence of an S-Pen stylus, similar to Samsung’s Android-powered Galaxy Tab A and S series of slates. This tablet will apparently be super-thin at just 6.2 mm and it will weigh 600 g. Meanwhile, G For Games says, the screen resolution could be either of 2,560 x 1,600 or 3,840 x 2,400 pixels.
However, there is no official confirmation from Samsung about a Windows 10 tablet at this point. Rest assured, as time progresses leaks and more rumors will start making rounds online.
