Hopefully, fans of the Surface Laptop series that Microsoft announced the fourth-generation model will be disappointed this year. Instead, the Redmond-based company released the Surface Laptop Go, which is an affordable model of the series. Now, images that are believed to be Surface Laptop 4 and Surface Pro 8 and detailed information about when they will arrive have appeared online.
These photos were posted on Twitter by users via “cozyplanes” (@cozyplanes) and they appear to be from the FCC. Surface Laptop 4 is shown in black, and we can only see the top view of the device. The image of Surface Pro 8 also brings us many shortcomings.

Nevertheless, the design of these two devices does not seem to differ much from their predecessors, and fans of the series may not be satisfied.
A common complaint of Surface Pro 7 is that it has the same design as previous generations, which makes Microsoft once again surprised that Surface Pro 8 uses the same old look. Hope it can appease buyers with new colors.
The tweet also revealed the model of the device and mentioned that the LTE version of the Surface Pro 8 will be released. Surface Pro 7 does not have an LTE version, so people who skip this version can look forward to Pro 8.
Regarding specifications, Windows Central stated that Surface Pro 8 and Surface Laptop 8 should be equipped with 11th-generation Intel processors with Intel Xe graphics. There are also unconfirmed reports about the AMD version of the Surface Notebook 4.
The time to market for these two devices is mid-January until the series is usually released in October.
