Microsoft has signed a deal with French technology company Lenovo to bring a new version of its tablet to PCs and other devices.
Microsoft said Wednesday that it would launch a new tablet running the new operating system in early 2018.
The tablet, which is said to be powered by Intel’s Core i5-7000 processor, will be available in select markets and at a suggested retail price of $199, a $20 discount off the MSRP of $299.
It will also come with a new 10-inch screen, Windows 8 Home Premium Home Premium Edition, an HDMI port and two gigabytes of RAM.
The Dell XPS 15, which Microsoft launched in March, is a high-end tablet that offers a high performance Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics card, 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.
Dell has also recently launched the Dell XC 15 with a Core i3-7100 processor and 256GB of storage.
Lenovo will supply the tablets with a 10-core Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics card.
The tablet’s 10-megapixel camera will also be upgraded to 4K.
The Lenovo deal follows Microsoft’s acquisition of the laptop maker from Lenovo earlier this year.
