Two Microsoft support pages have been found on the internet for the unannounced Surface Laptop 4, suggesting a launch may be looming large. One is an Intel model while the other is a placeholder for an AMD version of the laptop. Both were spotted by WalkingCat, an often reliable source of gadget leaks, who posted about it on Twitter and speculates that we might see them launched at a Surface event as soon as next week.
While the Microsoft support page does not provide us with many more details about the laptop, a report from WinFuture last month fills in the details. The AMD processors used will include the Ryzen 5 4680U and the Ryzen 7 4980U, and will reportedly be from its 4000 mobile series. 2019’s Surface Laptop 3 used the 3000-series chips, so this is a step up, but anyone hoping to see AMD’s brand new Ryzen 5000 mobile processors here might be disappointed.
On the Intel side, WinFuture notes, “there will be editions with the Intel Core i5-1145G7, while the more expensive models will be equipped with Intel Core i7-1185G7.”
Otherwise, the form-factor and specs of the Surface Laptop 4 are reportedly broadly in line with previous models that have been released, so there should be no or only minor differences on the outside. Apparently, there will be 13.5- and 15-inch models available, with a maximum of b1TB of storage and 32GB of RAM. Their screens should maintain that excellent 3:2 aspect ratio.
Any official announcements have not yet been made or received by the American tech company about when its new laptops could be launched, but considering how the support pages are already live, a release can’t be too far away.
