Microsoft Preparing ARM Surface Go 4 and 11-Inch Surface Pro

Microsoft could soon launch an 11-inch Surface Pro 9, with a ARM-based Surface Go 4 upgrade to launch later this year.


is working on two new Surface devices for 2023, according to a report by Windows Central. The company is said to be developing an 11-inch Surface Pro model and a Surface Go 4 powered by an ARM processor.

The 11-inch Surface Pro would be a smaller and more affordable version of the flagship Surface Pro 9, which was launched in October 2022 with a 13-inch display and 's 12th Gen Core processors. The smaller Surface Pro would offer similar features and performance but with a lower price tag and a more portable design. The device is expected to launch in the first half of 2023.

This launch prediction and the lower price suggest the 11-inch Surface Pro will be a new variant of the current Pro 9 series and not the Surface Pro 10. That will also raise the question of whether Microsoft will launch a Pro 10 this year or hold off until 2024.

Consumers may not appreciate buying a smaller Pro 9 only to see its specs upgraded in a Pro 10 six months later. The current generation Surface Pro has a 13-inch PixelSense display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Intel version comes with up to 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a 1TB SSD, while the 5G Arm model provides only up to 16GB of LPBBR4x RAM and a 512GB SSD.

ARM-Based Computing Coming to the Surface Go

The Surface Go 4, on the other hand, would be a major upgrade from the current Surface Go 3, which was also released in October 2021 with a 10.5-inch display and Intel's Pentium Gold or Core i3 processors. The Surface Go 4 would switch to an ARM-based processor, likely from Qualcomm, which would offer better battery life and compatibility with Windows 11 on ARM.

The device would also have a larger 11-inch display and a thinner bezel. The Surface Go 4 is expected to launch in the second half of 2023. This is more likely to be part of Microsoft's major new Surface line up for this year.
