After releasing an entry level Windows 8.1 tablet last year, namely the "Eve T1" - which we reviewed favorably - the company is now looking to take another step forward by developing a crowd-sourced Windows 10 2-in-1 device. Now, Konstantinos Karatsevidis, CEO and Co-founder of the company has informed Neowin that the device will be the first to support Intel's upcoming 7th-gen Kaby Lake Intel processors when it launches, instead of the 6th-gen Intel Core M CPUs, which were previously proposed for the device.
The advisory specifications for the device, which is being developed under the name "Project: Pyramid Flipper", were decided after mutual discussion between Eve and its fans. The current specifications are as follows:
- Display: 12-12.5" IPS LCD, 2160x1440p or better
- Processor: Intel 7th-gen "Kaby Lake" CPUs
- Graphics: Intel HD
- RAM: LPDDR3, 8 GB or more
- Digital Pen: Digitizer enabled pen, 256 pressure levels or more
- Storage: 128 GB, 256 GB or more, SSD
- Battery: 10 hours or better
- Wireless: WiFi ac 2x2, WiDi or Miracast wireless streaming, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
- Camera: Front: 720p HD autofocus or better
- Audio: Stereo speakers or better
- Sensors: Luminosity, Magnetometer, Gyroscope, Hall Effect, NFC
- Ports and connections: 1xUSB 3.1 gen 2 Type A, 1xUSB 2.0 Type A, 1xUSB 3.1 gen 2 Type C, 1xThunderbolt 3, 1x3.5 mm audio, MicroSDXC
- OS: Windows 10
- Size: To be decided
It is also important to note that these specifications are susceptible to change, as the device is still under active development with numerous factors to consider including cost, resources and availability of components.
Eve has also stated that the device will share a form factor similar to Microsoft's Surface devices, with an integrated kickstand. Moreover, it will also feature a "high quality keyboard and precision track pad", but with a "tablet first" approach. Tentative release dates, pricing and availability details are yet to be announced by the Finnish company.
