Is there such a thing as a GTX 1050 4GB?

I have seen advertisements for gaming laptops showing specs like this:

i7 7700 hq + 228 GB SSD + 1TB HDD 7200 + 16 GB RAM + Nvidia GTX 1050 4G

Everything I have read online, including Nvidias own site, says that the GTX 1050 only has 2G and that only the GTX 1050ti has 4G. Is this correct?

If so, then the advert is really misleading and confusing.

No way of knowing which one it is. Argh!

    From just Googling ‘1050 4gb laptop’ I can see several. My guess is laptop manufacturers are giving a 4gb option but I highly doubt a gpu of the 1050 level will benefit from the extra 2gb, it’s just not strong enough to use it. Seems like a marketing tactic to make the laptop look better.
