Expect an IntelCore processor with an Intel HD Graphics 615 chip with a generous 8GB of RAM with choices of 128GB and 256GB of storage, as well as a fingerprint scanner.

Camera-wise, the tablet will have a 16MP rear camera with dual-tone flash with an 8MP front camera. As for the OS, expect it to come with Windows 10 as well as the MS Office Suite and Cortana. There's also mention of a keyboard dock as well.

Pricing? RMB1999 (S$415) for the 128GB version and RMB2299 (S$480) for the 256GB version with a rumoured release at 30 December.
