Microsoft Surface Book 4 rumoured to feature a non-detachable, 14-inch and high-refresh-rate display with NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs
Microsoft has stuck with the Surface Book design since 2015, for better or worse. In the six years since the inaugural model, the Surface Book series has gained a 15-inch option, a USB Type-C port and a subtly different keyboard deck, but most changes are internal ones.
Windows Central believes that Microsoft may shake things up with the Surface Book 4 though, starting with a different name for the machine. Apparently, Microsoft is considering releasing the device under its Surface Laptop series as a Surface Laptop Pro or a Surface Laptop Studio. Windows Central has not confirmed the name with its sources though, so it still refers to it as the Surface Book 4, currently.
The website adds that the device will have a non-detachable, 3:2 and 14-inch display, a significant change from the three generations of Surface Book so far. Windows Central has only mentioned one screen size, too. However, the 14-inch display will support a Dynamic Refresh Rate (DRR), a new feature for Windows 11.
Additionally, the so-called Surface Book 4 will include NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs, which should come as no surprise. Windows Central believes that the Surface Book will support a new Surface Pen with built-in haptic feedback, as well. Windows Central is unsure of a release date, but Microsoft may announce the device at its annual hardware event, typically occurring in October.
