Surface Pro 8, and Surface Laptop 4 first appearance emerged recently on the internet. This time, the two devices, verifying their layouts and model numbers, emerged on the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards. Microsoft is expected to launch the Surface Laptop 4 and Surface Pro 8 with the chipsets of Tiger Lake at the start of 2021.
It’s no secret that Microsoft is preparing a Surface Pro 8 release. Earlier this month, an engineering prototype appeared on eBay. The buyer from eBay verified that the Surface Pro 8 had a processor Core i7-1165G7 and a similar option just like Surface Pro 7. However, until now, there has not been any sighting of a sequel to the Surface Laptop 3.
Not many specifics about the device are confirmed by the first appearance of the Surface Laptop 4, but it does give a few bits and pieces. Microsoft has allocated the model number 1950 to the Surface Laptop 4, which is currently not specified in the company’s Device SKU reference document, as per a listing by the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS). The Surface Laptop 4 still looks like its predecessor, but we can only view one image at the moment.
Similarly, one of the Surface Pro 8 photos was released by KATS. The organization has also stated that the model number 1960 is the Surface Pro 8, with the model number 1961 being allocated to an LTE variant. Both computers are scheduled to launch with processors from the Tiger Lake-U series, but Windows Central reports that the Surface Laptop 4 would have AMD setups. What APUs Microsoft has picked for the Surface Laptop 4 is unknown, however, but we would anticipate them to be based on the most recent Renoir architecture of AMD.
However, the site reports that, instead of the end of the year, Microsoft intends to launch the pair in January 2021. Obviously,’ this release will be a quiet one,’ so we might receive it in two months by a press release. Undoubtedly, this year’s device releases from Microsoft have been boring, to put it politely. A concept refresh was only given to the Surface Go 2, while the Surface Book 3 remains constant from its precursor.
