Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 could launch on April 27 with new Intel and AMD chips

The new Surface Laptop 4 is just around the corner and fresh reports indicate that Microsoft is going to launch it later this month. The new variants are expected to feature the same design and form factor as the current generation Surface Laptop 3, with the 13-inch variant possibly getting the option of AMD chipsets.

A report by Winfuture suggests that we could see the new Surface Laptop 4 hit stores on April 27. There will be two models again, including 13.5-inch and 15.6-inch, featuring the same design and material choices as the Surface Laptop 3. This means we can expect a magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis with a textile finish on the palm rest. The only possible change that we could see externally is the addition of a small compartment at the bottom to give users access to the PCIe NVMe SSD in case they would want to upgrade later. However, the SSD upgrade might only be possible via a Microsoft partner as it might be the same tiny M.2 2230 SSD that was seen on the Surface Pro X and the Surface Laptop 3.

The biggest update is going to be the new internal hardware. The Surface Laptop 4 is going to feature the new 11th-gen Intel processor and options for AMD’s new Surface Edition processors. WinFuture also suggests that Microsoft will offer the smaller 13.5-inch model with AMD processors this time around.
