Microsoft usually launches new Surface products every spring and fall. It looks like the spring launch, where a next-generation Surface Laptop is expected to be the headliner, may be imminent, based on the latest information.
The Walking Cat on Twitter (@ _h0x0d_) posted on April 7 a link to Microsoft’s own placeholders for Intel and AMD Surface Laptop 4 drivers and firmware. He tweeted “Surface Event next week?”
Earlier this year, Windows Central and WinFuture both posted information from their own sources about what might be next for Surface. It is rumored that Microsoft is launching Intel and AMD versions of both the 13.5-inch and 15-inch models. (Surface Laptop 3 came with AMD processors for 15-inch models only). Intel-based laptop 4s are expected to ship with Intel’s 11th generation Tiger Lake chips and AMD Ryzen 4000 processors.
There are also rumors that Microsoft may also launch new Surface headphones (possibly branded 2+) and maybe even the expected webcam from Microsoft as part of a spring launch.
Microsoft officials are not currently commenting on what’s next for Surface.
