More information about Microsoft’s upcoming Surface devices has leaked ahead of the company’s special event on September 21. Roland Quandt from the German blog WinFuture published official marketing renders of the Surface Laptop Studio 2 and the Surface Laptop Go 3, which will feature the same design as their predecessors.
The original Surface Laptop Studio that launched two years ago introduced a new 2-in-1 form factor. Microsoft opted for a pull-forward 14.4-inch display offering a more seamless transition between the laptop and tablet modes than the previous detachable design of the Surface Book line. Putting all the core components in the base also allowed Microsoft to not compromise as much on power.

While the Surface Studio 2 will keep its elegant design, the internals will be upgraded with up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 GPU, up to 64GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage. According to information from European retailers obtained by Quandt, the base model with an integrated Intel Xe GPU should be priced at around €2249 in Europe, while the top-of-the-line model could cost approximately €3,700.
The 12.5-inch Surface Laptop Go 3 will also keep the same design as the previous model, but it will be upgraded with an Intel 12th gen Core i5 CPU and up to 16GB of RAM. The base model with just 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM should start at €899 in Europe.
While there are no leaked pictures of the Surface Go 4, the new 10-inch tablet will also stick with the same design, though it will feature a newer Intel N200 CPU and 8GB of RAM. You should probably not expect to see new Surface Pro or Surface Laptop models being announced next week, however, as no information has leaked about new models.
There won’t be a live stream for Microsoft’s special event next week, but Paul will be attending it in person, so stay tuned! In addition to new Surface devices, Microsoft will likely put the spotlight on new AI features coming to Windows.
