With Microsoft planning to kill off Windows RT by not allowing existing ARM devices sporting a screen size of more than 8-inches to upgrade to full Windows 10, one important question arises. Which large screen tablet running Windows 10 will be released by Microsoft to replace its discontinued ARM devices?
GFXBench hints at one such device which according to Nokiapoweruser will replace the Lumia 2520 tablet. Indeed, the device packs in a 10.1-inch display identical to the said device but the display has been upped to a 2K resolution (2560 x 1440). The rumored device is also powered by a Snapdragon 805 with Adreno 420 processor. Furthermore, the internal storage mentioned is 55 GB which probably means 64 GB including the memory occupied by the system.
Your guess is as good as ours but considering Microsoft's stance regarding the future of Windows RT and taking the 10.1-inch screen of the Windows powered device into account, we are not sure how this tablet will be positioned in the market when and if it arrives. It's an interesting device as many had assumed Microsoft was done with large screen ARM devices but the specs from GFXBench tell a different story.
