Rumors about Microsoft Surface Go 4

By Mahnoor Mushtaq - Oct 29, 2022

The initial Surface device was a tablet with a detachable keyboard, but it wasn't until 2018 that Microsoft 2-in-1s became inexpensive. The initial Surface Go became one of the most affordable devices to run a full version of Windows at that time. Even though the Surface Go 3 was among the least intriguing items Microsoft announced last year, that has persisted through two generations. Running Windows 11 out of the box was the only significant change except for the processor upgrade. Due to the absence of an announcement at the event in October, the corporation is also skipping a year. Here is all the information you require about the Surface Go 4.

Characteristics & Specifications of the Surface Go 4

Next year is when the Surface Go 4 is anticipated. Although there aren't many specific rumors, we still clearly know what to anticipate. One alteration that will almost certainly occur is in the engine. A few months before Intel unveiled its 12th-generation mobile CPUs at CES, the Go 3 was released. Before any rumors, it seemed likely that the Go 4 would be powered by Alder Lake, yet by the time the device is introduced, it may be 13th-gen Raptor Lake. Will Microsoft, however, go to a Qualcomm chip with an ARM architecture instead? Zac Bowden from Windows Central described it as "very plausible" but "not 100% confirmed yet" in a recent video. Bowden continued by claiming that Microsoft is internally examining it, and given his solid track record with Surface news, we have no reason to dispute what he is saying. The Go 4 won't likely employ the most advanced Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 because it is a cheaper gadget, although a specific chipset is unknown now. According to Bowden's co-host Daniel Rubino, the earlier Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 chip, which at that point would be seen as a budget choice, may be used. On high-end devices and for corporate users, Bowden claims that "there will probably still be Intel SKUs." By switching to ARM, Microsoft's estimates of up to 11 hours on a single charge should be more accurate. However, during our review testing, the battery ran out considerably more quickly, so presumably, the 28Wh capacity has also increased.

The only modification in the Surface Go 2's design was an increase in display size from 10 to 10.5 inches without changing the device's overall footprint. Microsoft could be able to fit an 11-inch panel here with thinner bezels, but it might be unwilling to make a less expensive tablet appear as beautiful as the more expensive Surface Pro. "I wouldn't expect any meaningful design modifications to it," adds Zac Bowden.

Will anything else change in Surface Go 4?

In terms of features or design, we wouldn't anticipate many changes, but one aspect that might alter has to do with the Surface Pen. With the Surface Pro 8, Pro X, and Laptop Studio, Microsoft has started making the switch to the Surface Slim Pen design; however, the Surface Go 3 continues to use the conventional Surface Pen. However, it's likely that in the future, including with the Surface Go 4, all Surface devices will instead support the Surface Slim Pen.

Cost of Surface Go 4

Every version of the Surface Go family has had extremely stable pricing, which appears to be the case as we advance. Without the keyboard and pen accouterments, the base pricing will probably be just under $400. Depending on the upgrades you choose, it can cost around $800.
