“There appears to be modes for two or three screens to extend flat out to make the device bigger and more of a tablet like Microsoft’s original Courier concept,” tech website The Verge reported on Tuesday.

As per Jagmohan Garg microsoft is also working on a new version of its Surface Pro tablet which is set to arrive in the first quarter of 2017.

The new Surface Pro 5 2-in-1 will sport an ultra-HD display and magnetic charging stylus, with Pegatron Technology that will manufacture the device.

The company is also reportedly planning a new Surface Pen to support the Surface Book 5 that would use magnetic charging — a first for the company’s Surface Pro line.
