Eve Devices, the company that launched the Eve V in 2017 as a "Surface killer", has been working on a successor for some time now. Today, the company opened pre-orders for the device, and revealed the configurations it will be available in. The company had run a number of polls with its community a couple of weeks ago, which helped it decide what to offer.
All variants of the Eve V come with a 13.4-inch 4K UHD+ display (3840x2400), with HDR10 support and DisplayHDR400 certification. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, and it supports pen input, which Eve sells as an optional accessory.
Inside, the new Eve V will come with Intel's Tiger Lake processors, specifically the Core i5 or Core i7, both offering the G7 graphics based on the iris Xe architecture. The tablet offers either 16GB or 32GB of dual-channel LPDDR4X RAM running at 4266MHz, and for storage, an NVMe SSD is included with either 512GB or 1TB of capacity. The battery is 41.3Wh on all models.
The top-tier configurations (with a Core i7 and 32GB of RAM) offer options for LTE and GPS, so you can stay connected even when there's no Wi-Fi available. Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 are both supported. For wired connectivity, there are two Thunderbolt 4 ports and one USB 3.2 Gen 2 port with DisplayPort video support as well as power delivery. There's also a 3.5mm audio jack and a microSD card reader. The tablet supports both fingerprint and facial recognition for Windows Hello.
The Eve V is available for pre-order starting today, starting at $1189 without a pen or keyboard included. This is for the model with the Core i5-1135G7, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of internal storage. The maximum configuration, with a Core i7-1165G7, 32GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage, plus LTE and GPS support starts at $1789, though prices will increase as more pre-orders are placed.
You will need to pay $300 in advance to pre-order, but the payment is fully refundable if you change your mind. The Eve V is expected to ship in the third quarter of 2021.
