The first-ever crowd developed tablet, the Eve V is a feature-packed is like the surface pro. And it does look like one that can take the fight to the Microsoft device with very impressive features, including USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3.
Design and Display
The Eve V looks premium and robust with a chassis made of sand-blasted aluminium. It looks quite slim as well, with Eve Tech putting the thickness at just 0.89 centimetres.
The company describes the unibody design as Scandinavian – it was worked on by design team at Sweden’s Propeller. Just like the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 4, the Eve V 2-in-1 tablet comes with a detachable keyboard featuring the high-end Alcantara material purportedly used in Formula 1 cars. The keyboard and a stylus are bundled with the hybrid tablet.
The Eve V has a 12.3-inch display with similar 3:2 aspect ratio and 2734 x 1824 pixel resolution as Microsoft’s new 2-in-1. The IGZO-backlit screen is said to use one of the best LCD technologies in the world and comes with anti-reflective coating. It features scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
Performance and Operating System
The Eve V is built for better productivity and web performance with latest Intel Kaby Lake Core processors. Its entry level configuration offers you an Intel Core m3 CPU with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD.
Available configurations offer up to Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM and 512GB onboard storage. With the provision of 600 PCIe SSD, Eve Tech says you can go from start-up to login in less than nine seconds!
The 2-in-1 uses a copper heat pipe cooling system to keep heat in check. Eve V boasts a 48Wh battery. This convertible goes one (or two) better than the Surface Pro by including USB 3.0 Gen 1 Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports. Interfaces also include two full-size USB 3.0 Gen 1 ports and a microSD card reader.
The Windows 10 device offers Windows Hello support and a fingerprint reader for enhanced security. Eve V looks to deliver powerful sound with quad speakers and Audio Jack Amplifier by Texas Instruments.
