Microsoft has not revealed the Surface Laptop 4 yet, but it has added AMD and Intel models to its Download Center. The Surface Laptop 4 is expected to launch as soon as next week with Intel Tiger Lake-U, custom AMD Ryzen Renoir APUs, and two display sizes.

Microsoft is yet to launch the Surface Laptop 4, but it did reveal its upcoming laptop on its Download Center. The company has now taken down the offending pages, but they were live for enough time for us to take screenshots, which we have included below.

As expected, Microsoft will be releasing the Surface Laptop 4 in AMD and Intel versions. The firmware pages only contained a dummy text file, so Microsoft did not reveal any technical specifications about the Surface Laptop 4. Fortunately, Roland Quandt was on hand last month to reveal almost every detail about Microsoft's next laptop. You can read more about those specifications here.

In short, Microsoft will offer the Surface Laptop 4 with Intel Tiger Lake-U and custom AMD Ryzen Renoir APUs. AMD and Intel processors will be available on the 13.5-inch and 15-inch models for everybody this time, unlike the Surface Laptop 3. Additionally, the Surface Laptop 4 will have a 49 Wh battery, 4 Wh more than its predecessor's capacity.

Undoubtedly, the appearance of the Surface Laptop 4 on the Microsoft Download Center suggests that Microsoft is close to releasing its new laptop. WalkingCat has suggested that Microsoft may launch the Surface Laptop 4 next week, which would be conceivable. We would not be surprised if Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop 4 via a press release though, as it did with Surface hardware last year.
