New competition for Microsoft’s Surface Pro: Finnish manufacturer Eve would like to reissue its V series and has already presented some interesting details. Will Eve finally be able to deliver what has long been promised with the second generation 2-in-1 tablet? The 4K HDR display, Intel Tiger Lake-U, and modern connections sound promising.
Eve V: new competition for Microsoft Surface Pro
With the second generation Eve V everything should improve. The manufacturer has now announced a significantly expanded variant that will shake up the 2-in-1 tablet market. The Eve V with Windows 10 has a detachable keyboard, stylus and kickstand, but primarily wants to impress with its display and processor.
The highlight is likely to be the display, which has a 13.4-inch diagonal and, depending on the model, has a resolution of 4K or Full HD. The IGZO panel has a 16:10 aspect ratio, 500 nit brightness, and can display HDR10 content. The pen offers up to 4,096 levels of pressure.
For the processor, they settled on a new Tiger Lake from Intel, although the exact model has yet to be revealed. The Intel Iris Xe Graphics GPU is responsible for graphics, which is more powerful than the Intel UHD Graphics 620, which is installed in older models. There are also many connections: two Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) ports, a USB-C 3.1 connection as well as a microSD card reader and a SIM card reader. Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) are included, as well as four speakers.

Eve V: 2-in-1 tablet price not yet known
The manufacturer has yet to reveal when and at what price the 2-in-1 tablet will launch. For Eve, the Eve V is primarily about regaining lost confidence. First-generation customers often complained about long delivery times and hardware problems. According to Eve, the business model has now changed and, thanks to the support of large investors, she is no longer in financial difficulties.
