Back in 2014, Microsoft introduced the Surface Pro 3, which was supposed to debut alongside a smaller tablet, known as the Surface Mini.

Alas, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop decided to pull the plug on the Mini just a few weeks prior to its scheduled launch.

But now images of the device have emerged, as Windows Central has managed to get its hands on shots of the tablet.

The tablet itself was an 8-inch device, sporting a 1440 x 1080 screen, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage packed inside.

In terms of design, it seems Microsoft decided to house the tablet in what Windows Central calls a "soft and felt-like" material that almost seems like a case, but is actually a non-removable part of the outer casing.

There's also the usual kickstand on the Surface Mini, alongside slightly angled edges, making for quite a large bezel around the screen.
