Submission + - Next SurfaceRT to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and LTE

recoiledsnake writes: Following up on our previous discussion of Microsoft selling discounted SurfaceRT tablets to schools which fueled speculation about the future of Surface RT, Bloomberg is now reporting that Microsoft is fast at work on the next Surface RT which will replace the current Tegra 3 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip which has stellar benchmarks against the likes of the upcoming Tegra 4, Apple A6X, and Exynos processors, especially in the GPU and graphics department. Since the SoC comes with 3g/LTE, this might be the first Surface to support integrated cellular data. There are also indications that there could be an 8" version, and that the new versions might be revealed alongside the Windows 8.1 preview bits at the upcoming BUILD conference, starting on June 26.
