At its Galaxy Unpacked April 2021, Samsung has unveiled its new PC range. The South Korean tech giant has launched Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360.
According to Samsung, the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 are going to reshape the PC for mobile-first consumers.
Samsung Galaxy Book features and specs
Each of the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 offers two screen sizes of 13-inch and 15-inch. The Galaxy Book Pro 360 will be available in Mystic Navy, Mystic Silver and Mystic Bronze colour options. The Galaxy Book Pro will be available in Mystic Blue, Mystic Silver and Mystic Pink Gold.
Both the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 are built with military-grade durability with 6000-series aluminium, which is apparently the same alloy used by aerospace manufacturers.
Samsung says that its Galaxy Book Pro series houses Samsung’s first-ever Windows PCs with Super AMOLED display. This is the same display that Samsung uses for its smartwatches, smartphones, tablets and more.
The display on the Galaxy Book Pro is Eye Care-certified by SGS which means that they are said to produce less blue light emissions than standard LCDs.
When it comes to hardware, the Galaxy Book Pro series comes powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core processor (i7/i5/i3) and Intel Iris Xe graphics (i7, i5) or Intel UHD Graphics (i3).
Samsung claims that Galaxy Book Pro comes with an Intelligent Performance Manager that modulates fan noise, temperature and battery usage for enhanced performance.
The keyboard housed in the Galaxy Books Pro includes a scissor mechanism with 1mm of travel length.
They come with LTE and 5G connectivity support. They support 65W Fast Charging.
Mobile ecosystem integration
Samsung’s Galaxy Book pro series is said to seamlessly work with other Galaxy devices. Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ can act as a second screen for facilitating multitasking.
With Link to Windows and Microsoft Your Phone integration, users will be able to take calls, check notifications, access photos, messages and run up to five apps simultaneously.
Samsung has also equipped the Galaxy Book Pro series with Galaxy Book Smart Switch that helps in transferring photos, movies, files, apps and settings from your existing Windows PC to your Galaxy Book Pro series.
Quick Share and SmartThings integration are also present in the Galaxy Book Pro series.
