Earlier today, Microsoft support placeholders briefly appeared for two upcoming Surface Laptop 4 models—one AMD, and one Intel. The placeholders were spotted by @walkingcat:
The placeholders are already gone, but German news site WinFuture provided more details last month. The AMD models will feature last-gen models Ryzen 5 4680U and Ryzen 7 4980U, while the Intel models feature the brand-new Core i5-1145G7 and Core i7-1185G7.
According to that WinFuture report, the AMD models will once again only be offered at lower specifications. Intel models will go up to 32GiB RAM and 1TB storage; the AMD models will be capped at maximums of 16GiB and 512GB, respectively. On the plus side, the AMD models are rumored to be available with 13.5-inch screens for the first time this year.
We broadly expect official announcements of these and other Surface products at Microsoft’s spring Surface launch event sometime within the next week or two.
Update: Winlatest spotted FCC filings for four “portable computing device” variants from Microsoft which look likely to be the Surface Laptop 4: C3K1979, C3K1958, C3K1952 and C3K1950.
