The placeholders are already gone, but German news site WinFuture provided more details last month. The AMD models will feature last-gen models Ryzen 5 4680U and Ryzen 7 4980U, while the Intel models feature the brand-new Core i5-1145G7 and Core i7-1185G7.
According to that WinFuture report, the AMD models will once again only be offered at lower specifications. Intel models will go up to 32GiB RAM and 1TB storage; the AMD models will be capped at maximums of 16GiB and 512GB, respectively. On the plus side, the AMD models are rumored to be available with 13.5-inch screens for the first time this year.
