The original Surface Pro.

More details from both Neowin and WinSuperSite shed light on the next-generation Surface Pro, which will feature some nice upgrades internally and a new kickstand.

Called the Surface Pro 2, Microsoft’s new tablet will reportedly be powered by Intel’s newest Haswell-based Core i5 chip, which should improve battery life by a few hours. In addition, the Surface Pro 2 will have its RAM increased from 4GB to 8GB. 

Paul Thurrott at WinSuperSite also reported that the Surface Pro 2 will have a new “integrated two-position kickstand.” A price for the new device is still unknown, but Neowin doesn’t expect much change in that department.

Thurrott also added that Microsoft is building an upgraded version of the Surface RT tablet and calling it simply the “Surface 2.”
