Microsoft is making a new Surface device powered by ARM processor that is likely to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and support LTE connectivity. “Microsoft is planning some type of ARM-powered Surface hardware. That wouldn’t be a surprise given its Windows on ARM efforts, but it’s still not clear what type of device we’ll see,” TechCrunch reported late on Friday. The company has posted a job advertisement for a radio engineer to be based in Redmond Building 85, one of the many buildings Microsoft uses for its Surface and hardware employees, the report added. As per the job ad, the tech giant is also looking for an engineer that has LTE experience with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset. The chipset has not been officially unveiled yet but the company is expected to reveal it next week at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit in Hawaii. According to media reports, the new processor could be announced on the very first day of the event.

However, the mass production may not start by early 2018. Qualcomm is also expected to reveal details of its Windows on ARM plans at the summit.
