Despite the beefed up display, WinFuture reports that Microsoft will be sticking to the same 3:2 aspect ratio found on older Surface Laptop models.

So that's a 15in Surface Laptop model likely powered by mobile takes on AMD's third-generation Ryzen CPUs.

As per reports, the company is now working with Intel and a number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to ready a new version of Windows, codenamed Windows Lite.

"According to the report, Microsoft may offer three three AMD-based models of the Surface Laptop 3 with a 15-inch display, but it's still not clear if there also could be Intel variants of the new 15" Surface Laptop 3.

In a press release published today , Apple highlighted four of the 54 games that will be available when Apple Arcade launches. The graphics are sophisticated and go for a realism rarely found on games intended for Apple's platforms.

With that in mind, we're not surprised to hear that Microsoft patented a brand new type of hinge, one that could accommodate the needs of those companies working on foldable devices of any kind - Microsoft included.

Microsoft will likely launch the Surface Pro 7 at a NY event on 2 October, and a report claims to accurately list the device's spec options. There will still be a 13.5-inch version of the Surface Laptop 3 for those who prefer a smaller display. Further enquiries by the German source suggests the 13.5-inch model will continue to be a exclusively Intel affair - packing one of the latest 10 gen processors of course. That could mean the 13.5-inch variant will remain with Intel. So much so that the company will avoid updating the Surface Book this year, instead focusing on the Surface Laptop 3.

That won't be the only new thing for the Surface Laptop line. We also reported on the Microsoft products expected to be released on the same day.

If this rumor turns out to be true, Microsoft risks cannibalizing another one of its devices - the Surface Book.
