Microsoft is said to launch a small version of its Surface tablet (called Surface mini) on May 20 that will use Qualcomm chips instead of Nvidia.

Microsoft is reportedly going to shift its chip supplier from Nvidia to Qualcomm for its new smaller version of Surface tablets. Microsoft is said to launch new Surface models on May 20 at a media event in New York. But tech giant has not publicly announced about the event before.

However, A new report from WindowsITPro confirms about this media event as Microsoft has officially invited media to a "small gathering" in New York City on May 20. The invites asked the press and bloggers to "Join us for a small gathering."

And as sources with knowledge of Microsoft plans told Bloomberg that tech giant is planning to launch a smaller version of its Surface tablets that will have a Qualcomm chip inside for the first time.

It means that Microsoft is changing its usual Surface chip supplier Nvidia for new Surface Mini tablets. And with this stance, Microsoft actually wants to increase sales of its tablets.

And Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors and modems are now a part of every top top-selling smartphones. Samsung is using Qualcomm processors in all of its Galaxy devices. However, Apple on the other hand, is using is its own chips in iPads.

Microsoft’s new Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella has repeatedly said that "he wants to turn the Redmond, Washington-based company into one that focuses on “mobile first, cloud first.” Since becoming CEO in February, Nadella has unveiled Office software for Apple’s iPad and updated Windows Phone mobile software."

 

Sources also said that the tech giant will also launch those new Surface models that will have Intel processors inside. Microsoft previously had a version of Surface with Nvidia chips that use ARM Holdings Plc technology.   

And as the mediainvites suggests, Microsoft is going to launch its Surface Mini tablets at the upcoming event. However, the report also suggests that tech giant can also have another surprise for the attendees of the May 20th media event.
