From what I heard, USB4 laptops will basically connect directly to Thunderbolt 3 devices and should recognize them and work with them as if they were USB4 devices from the start. USB4 essentially copied the Thunderbolt 3 spec verbatim and since TB3 has provision for USB protocols, USB4/TB3 supersedes USB3.x in every way.

Alternatively, current TB3 enabled laptops like MacBook pro's will essentially will be compatible with USB4 devices.
