Samsung has promised us its best performing Galaxy models, and the new Galaxy Book Pro range of laptops is the result. The Galaxy Book Pro notebook and Galaxy Book Pro 360 convertible are available for the first time in 13-inch and 15-inch sizes with AMOLED screens on Samsung Windows computers and with WiFi 6E and even 5G on selected models.

According to Samsung, AMOLED panels react 30 times faster than LCD screens. An intelligent color engine automatically changes the color spaces depending on what you are doing. For example, when you watch videos or play games, the display switches to the DCI-P3 or AMOLED Native color profile. Meanwhile, load an image editing app and switch to a more color-accurate profile.

Both notebooks have a slim metal design made of aluminum from the 6000 series and meet the toughness values ​​MIL-STD-810G. The Galaxy Book Pro 13-inch is 1.92 pounds and 11.2 mm thick, while its 360 counterpart is 2.29 pounds and the same thickness.

The Galaxy Book Pro is considered to be the thinnest notebook for the use of the 11th generation Intel Core processors on the Evo platform and is offered as an upgrade with a Core i5-1135G7 or a Core i7-1165G7 as standard. There is 8 GB LPDDR4x memory in 13-inch format and up to 16 GB in 15-inch format as well as 512 GB NVMe SSD memory.

The smaller of the two has a 13.3-inch Super AMOLED Full HD panel, while the larger has a 15.6-inch version with the same resolution. both are 16: 9 aspect. Both have Intel Iris Xe graphics, WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.1. Samsung integrates a fingerprint sensor into the power button, as well as AKG speakers, Dolby Atmos support, a 720p webcam, and a dual array microphone that borrows noise-canceling technology from the Galaxy Buds Pro.

The ports include a Thunderbolt 4, a USB Type C, USB 3.2, HDMI and a 3.5 mm audio combo jack. There is also a microSD card slot. The 13-inch battery has a 63 Wh battery, while the 15-inch battery has a 68 Wh battery. Samsung suggests that you can see up to 20 hours of video playback. For charging, there’s a 65W USB-C power adapter that uses gallium nitride for a 52 percent smaller footprint. After a 30-minute charge, the battery life can be extended by 8 hours.

How exactly this energy is consumed depends on the settings for the Intelligent Performance Manager. For example, the surface under the notebook, the environmental conditions and the apps you are running are analyzed and switched between four different modes. On the one hand, there’s the Max-Performance mode for most of the grunt, with the optimized mode bringing the balance more towards saving energy. Silent mode reduces fan speed and performance, while No Fan mode is completely muted.

On the software page there is a link to Windows, which supports up to five mobile apps that run on your Galaxy smartphone, as well as synchronization with Samsung Notes and the option of using a current Samsung Android tablet as a secondary monitor use. Samsung has also adopted its device transmission system. The Galaxy Book Smart Switch wirelessly transfers content from your old PC to the new notebook. There’s Quick Share, SmartThings control over your IoT devices, and SmartThings Find.

For security reasons, there is a filter for the secret screen, which optionally prevents off-center visibility, as well as password-protected and hidden data protection folders. You can even set the Galaxy Book Pro to automatically take a photo of people trying to sign in with the wrong credentials and email the picture to you.

The 13.3-inch Galaxy Book Pro will start at $ 999 and the 15.6-inch version will start at $ 1,099. They’ll be pre-ordered today and shipped May 13th.

Samsung’s convertible version of the notebook, the Galaxy Book Pro 360, is. slightly heavier – 2.29 pounds for the 13.3-inch and 3.06 pounds for the 15.6-inch – but arguably a lot more usable. The screen resolution and technology are the same, but there’s a new S Pen design – thicker than the old version for a more comfortable grip – with the pen included.
