Yesterday, 13 April, Microsoft announced the new Surface Laptop 4 and some new accessories. Here’s a quick recap of what was announced.
Surface products are in a category of their own and if you happen to own one, you know that’s it not the average laptop or tablet that you can buy off the shelf. Microsoft pride themselves in the build quality, the amount of details and I must add durability. I have personally owned several Surface devices from the Surface RT, to the Surface 3 and now Surface Pro 6 as my daily driver and it is still going strong.
Surface Laptop 4
Surface Laptop 4 has the same great build quality you would expect from a Surface device. This year’s specifications are as follows:
- 3:2 PixelSense touchscreen display – 13.5 or 15 inch
- Alcantara or Metal finish with a new Ice Blue Finish.
- Incredible low-light capability HD front facing camera and microphone array.

Microsoft also announced a new Surface Headphones 2+ for Business with dedicated Microsoft Teams button for those meeting that keep on happening. It includes all existing features that customers love about their Surface headphones as per Microsoft. It has 13 levels of active noise cancellation, advanced 8-microphone systems for incredible voice clarity and the awesome earcup dial. 18.5 hours of music an 14 hours of voice calling is pretty impressive.
Microsoft also announced Modern USB and Wireless Headsets, Modern USB-C speaker and Modern Webcam.
These are all certified for Microsoft Teams. The headsets have a greater focus and call privacy specially in shared workspace as per Microsoft. With the dedicated Teams button, you can join a call without much clicking here and there and you also have a physical mute button to avoid any blunders. These headsets will be available as from June.

These of course will not be available officially on our market and will need to be purchased in countries where they are available. However, these can be shipped by services like Shop and Ship by Aramex.
I will post a detailed configuration of Surface laptop 4 as soon as it is available for purchase on Amazon US, where I normally buy.
