Microsoft has been rumoured to be working on the successor to the Surface Laptop 3 that was launched in November of 2019.
Now, the Redmond giant has released a video teasing the upcoming Surface Laptop 4. The one minute 31 second video posted on Twitter and YouTube goes through the story of Surface devices and showcases the existing lineup. In the video, Panos Panay narrates the journey of Surface devices and talks about the engineering and design teams working on the hardware. While the video showcases all the Surface devices, the emphasis is on the Surface Laptop.

Unfortunately, the video ends with a cryptic message that reads "More to come" with no date or a timeframe. Microsoft usually holds a Surface event in the last quarter of the calendar year so expect the same for this year. That being said, the Surface Laptop 4 has leaked on the internet multiple times and we expect Microsoft to launch the it ahead of the annual Surface event. According to the latest leak from German website WinFuture, the Surface Laptop 4 is scheduled to launch on April 27.
The device will come with a Core i5-1145G7 or Core i7-1185G7 on the Intel side and a Ryzen 4680U Surface Edition, or the Ryzen 7 4980U Surface Edition on the AMD side. The processor will be paired with up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. As for the pricing, the base variant is expected to start at around €1,399, with the maxed out variant going up to €2,699.
As usual we will be keeping an eye out for the Surface Laptop 4. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, Microsoft will most likely announce the Surface Laptop 4 via a digital event.
