The Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro is perfect for the new “work-from-anywhere” environment
Samsung announced the new Galaxy Book2 Pro and Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 laptops at Mobile World Congress this week. They are updates to last year’s Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360, which were well received. Samsung included some new features for the Galaxy Book2 Pro series helping it to better integrate with Samsung’s other products. Like its new Galaxy S22 smartphone that was also announced earlier this month. Which is why it has earned our Best Of MWC 2022 award.
With the Galaxy Book2 Pro, Samsung has added some new features to Quick Share. That allows you to send large files with its new Link Sharing option. That will generate an easily shareable link that recipients can access and quickly share content from PC to other devices. Link to Windows is also available on the Galaxy Book2 Pro, which works really well on Samsung’s smartphones too. Allowing users to check on their smartphone from their laptop, without needing to touch their phone.
Samsung also introduced Multi Control. This basically allows you to use the keyboard and trackpad on your Galaxy Book2 Pro with your Galaxy Tab S8 at the same time. Almost like a second screen.
These are top-notch, well-specced laptops at an affordable price
The specs on both of these laptops are pretty impressive. The Galaxy Book2 Pro comes in two sizes: 13.3 and 15.6-inches. While the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 also comes in the same two sizes, all four are available with FHD AMOLED displays. The Galaxy Book2 Pro and 360 models are sporting the 12th gen Intel Core Processors, either an i5 or i7, along with up to 32GB of RAM on-board and up to 1TB of storage via NVMe SSD.
Graphics are provided by the Intel Iris Xe graphics, or Intel Arc graphics which is an option on the Galaxy Book2 Pro 15.6-inch model only. The 13.3-inch models sport a 63Wh battery, and the 15.6-inch models have a 68Wh battery inside.
These are not gaming laptops, but are definitely good all-around laptops that you can use for work, school, and play. Just don’t expect to get the best experience on something like Cyberpunk 2077 with these.
Prices for these are actually pretty affordable for what they are. The Galaxy Book2 Pro will start at $1,049, and the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 will start at $1,249. That still might seem a bit pricey, since there’s no discrete graphics here. But remember that these sport AMOLED displays, something that is very rare among laptops and also pretty expensive.
That’s why the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro is worthy of our Best of MWC 2022 award. These laptops tick all of the right boxes.
