On Wednesday, at its latest Unpacked event, Samsung took the wraps off of two new laptops – the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360. Both of these come in two sizes, 13.3 and 15.6-inches.
They are made for both work from home consumers and those that are traveling for work. With LTE and 5G connectivity available, as well as WiFi 6E included both models. Giving you the fastest speeds possible. Both also feature long-lasting batteries, and 65W charging.
With Full HD AMOLED displays, Dolby Atmos audio from the built-in AKG speakers, the newest Galaxy Book Pro models are great for consuming content as well.
The Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 also comes with the S Pen that works with the touchscreen, making it easier to take notes, do some doodling and much more. There is a built-in silo for housing the S Pen too. So you don’t need to attach it to the back of the laptop, like the Galaxy Tab S7.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Book Pro 360 also has a “Studio Mode” which makes taking calls on Zoom, WebEx, Google Meet and other places so much easier. Samsung has also included intelligent noise cancelling on the Galaxy Book Pro 360, so you can take calls in busy settings.
Of course, both of these work really well with the rest of Samsung’s ecosystem. You can sync your Samsung Notes through your Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Galaxy Book Pro. With Quick Share, you can quickly share content between your Samsung devices. And SmartThings Find is also available on the Galaxy Book Pro, to help you find your Galaxy smartphone, tablet, watch or even something that the Galaxy SmartTag is attached to.
