Later this month, Microsoft will be hosting a Surface event where they should be announcing the Surface mini along with some other Intel related products and or updates. Up to this point, no one has been able to obtain any leaked images of the device but that hasn’t stopped the creation of the mockup that you see above.
There are two mockups here, the left is a 4:3 setup and the right a 16:9. Both incorporate the information that the device will not have a kickstand and will support pen input. They also keep the same body-lines as the current gen Surface tablets along with the same color as well.
One interesting difference about these mockups when compared to existing devices is the use of USB to charge the tablets instead of Microsoft’s proprietary connector. Seeing that the mini may not need as much juice as it’s larger siblings, we will be curious to see what type of port is included with the device.
With the press event less than two weeks away, we won’t have to wait long to see if these designs are close to the shipping product.
