Acer already has plans for unveiling new devices in September, but all we know is that they’re preparing smartphones, but what about tablets? Today we learn they could be working on a 11.6 inch Aspire Switch 2 in 1 tablet or even more models of this kind.


The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a Windows tablet with an Intel Bay Trail processor inside and a keyboard dock and it’s easily used as a notebook. This device also flips, facing away from the keyboard if need be. Reports say that Acer is now ready to release a bigger Aspire Switch 2 in 1 unit and the guys of TabTech even found evidence about the product, codenamed SW5-111 and SW5-171 in the official Acer documents.

If you have a look at Acer’s naming patterns, you’ll find that it’s very likely these slates have 11.6 inch screens and at least one of them will feature an Intel Bay Trail processor, while the other one would have an Intel Haswell processor. Benchmark leaks also suggest that the SW5-111 will feature an Intel Atom Z3745 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, while the SW5-171 will adopt an Intel Core i3, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.

They’ll share 1366 x 768 pixel resolutions.
