A couple of Microsoft support pages for the Surface Laptop 4 have appeared unannounced, suggesting that its launch may be imminent. One is a placeholder for an AMD version of the laptop, while the other is for an Intel model. Both went detected by WalkingCat, an often reliable source of device leaks, speculating that we could see them released in a Surface event as soon as next week.
Microsoft’s support page doesn’t give much more detail on the laptop, but a report from WinFuture last month fill in the details. The AMD processors used will reportedly be from its mobile 4000 series and will include the Ryzen 5 4680U and the Ryzen 7 4980U. That’s a step up from the 3000 series chips used in 2019’s Surface Laptop 3, but anyone wanting to see AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 mobile processors here might be disappointed.
On the Intel side, WinFuture he points out that we should see 11th gen chips like the Core 15-1145G7 and the Core i7-1185G7.
Otherwise, the Surface Laptop 4’s specs and form factor are in line with previous models. Apparently there will be 13.5-inch and 15-inch models available, with a maximum of 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. Your displays should maintain that excellent 3: 2 aspect ratio.
Microsoft has yet to make any official announcements on when its new laptops might launch, but considering that the support pages are already live, the launch can’t be far off.
