Update | Eve Devices confirms that its upcoming launch is for the V 2020
Update: Eve Devices has now opened reservations for the V 2020. It reveals for the first time that the device is powered by either Core i5-1135G7 or Intel Core i5-1135G7 Processor - Benchmarks and Specsi7-1165G7 processors, paired with 16GB or 32GB of RAM.
These SKUs, which also include options with cellular connectivity, start at US$1189 for an i5/16GB/512GB SSD base model (prices correct at time of writing). Furthermore, its backlit keyboard is an additional purchase that starts at $130, as is its $80 stylus.
A customer needs to make a $300 "deposit" on this page, and pay the balance on their new convertible's shipping date. Again, this may not take place until the third quarter of 2021, which is a shame as many alternatives with comparable (or possibly better) specs may have launched by then.
Furthermore, Eve Devices has also noted that additional shipping costs could run to about $50/€50, so as to account for extra taxes or import fees.
Original: Eve Devices has all but confirmed that its 2nd-gen potential Microsoft Surface rival will be launched on December 1, 2020. Pre-orders for this device will also apparently start on this date. The company has advised its fans that it might be beneficial to complete one very early on.
This is because ordering one will be done through a process similar to that for its Spectrum monitor. A customer needs to make a US$300 deposit (albeit a fully refundable one) to secure a unit, paying the (as yet unspecified) balance for it when it is ready to be shipped.
Eve Devices has noted that this is projected not to take place until the third quarter of 2021, however. In addition, the company has divulged that the first 500 units of the V 2020 will be sold at its lowest possible price, as with the Spectrum.
The OEM has also mentioned some specs for the upcoming 2-in-1, although there is little heretofore-unknown detail here. It will have Tiger Lake Intel CPUs and an HDR display. There will also be a stylus for this screen with Wacom technology, although it is not clear if this is a separate purchase or not.
Eve has also teased the device with a shot of one of the tablet's edges, which will have an LED, a power button, 2 USB type C ports and possibly an air intake. The ports are touted to support Thunderbolt 4, which, as the OEM points out, can handle a range of peripherals "from headphones to eGPUs". Hopefully, this is not a hint that there is no 3.5mm jack on its other side after all.
