Microsoft support pages for Surface Laptop 4 suggest an upcoming launch

0

A few Microsoft support pages have popped up for the unannounced Surface Laptop 4, suggesting a launch is imminent. One is a placeholder for a AMD version of the laptop, while the other for one Intel modelBoth were spotted by WalkingCat, an often reliable source of gadget leaks, speculating that we might see them launched on one Surface event next week

Microsoft’s support page doesn’t provide much more detail about the laptop, but one reporting of WinFuture last month fills in the details. The AMD processors used will reportedly come from the 4000 mobile series, including the Ryzen 5 4680U and the Ryzen 7 4980U. That’s a step up from the 3000 series chips used in 2019 Surface Laptop 3, but anyone hoping to see AMD’s all-new Ryzen 5000 mobile processors here may be disappointed.

On the side of Intel, WinFuture notes that we should see 11th generation chips like the Core 15-1145G7 and the Core i7-1185G7.

Otherwise, the Surface Laptop 4’s specs and form factor are said to be broadly in line with previous models. There will apparently be 13.5 and 15-inch models available, with a maximum of 32 GB RAM and 1 TB storage. Their screens should keep that excellent 3: 2 aspect ratio.

Microsoft hasn’t made any official announcements yet about when its new laptops may be launched, but since the support pages are already live, a release couldn’t be far off.
