SEOUL, KOREA – April 28, 2021 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today unveiled the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360, the new generation of mobile computing devices that bring together powerful performance with the mobile DNA of a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Based on the enhanced Galaxy ecosystem, Galaxy Book Pro and Book Pro 360 work seamlessly with your other Galaxy and IoT devices, making workflow and entertainment across devices smoother—and making life easier. As a staple for the Galaxy Book Pro series, Samsung embraced open collaboration, working with industry-leading partners Intel and Microsoft, to build a new approach to mobile computing, where smartphones and PCs work together flawlessly across operating systems and never sacrifice performance for portability. 

“We at Samsung have pioneered countless exciting mobile experiences - new hardware, software, and new ways to help you stay connected and give you the freedom to live your life to the fullest,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “The new Galaxy Book Pro series offers true mobile computing for the connected world, enabling ultra-light, yet mighty portability, boundless connectivity and a window into your wider Galaxy ecosystem.” 

The Galaxy Book Pro series is tailor-made for today’s multi-device world, backed by a vast ecosystem of connected devices and services that elevate your productivity, creativity, and entertainment.

Inspired by Mobile Design, Built for Modern Routines

Galaxy Book Pro 360 and Galaxy Book Pro were designed around the needs and routines of modern mobile-first users, designed to make your day-to-day experience simpler, smoother, and more intuitive than ever before. These PCs are Samsung’s most mobile Galaxy Books yet, with Galaxy Book Pro 13-inch weighing just 0.87kg[1], and measuring just 11.2mm thin—no need to make any tradeoffs when packing a purse or bag. The compactness doesn’t come at the expense of durability, either. They are built with military-grade of durability[2] with 6000-series aluminum[3], the same alloy trusted by leading aerospace manufacturers around the world.

With fast and secure LTE[4] and 5G[5] support, you can turn any location into a mobile office, theater, or conference room—without interruption. Plus, the Galaxy Book Pro series is Wi-Fi 6E Ready[6], so you will be able to enjoy more bandwidth and a faster 6GHz internet connection at home or in the office. 

Battery life is crucial to mobility, and the new Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 are built to keep you going through the day. With long-lasting battery, you’ll rarely have to worry about pausing the task at hand to track down an outlet. But if you do need to charge up in a pinch, Galaxy Book Pro series supports 65W Fast Charging, so you can top off the device quickly with a USB Type-C adapter. 

Immersive Entertainment Experiences with Super AMOLED

Equipped with cutting-edge hardware, the Galaxy Book Pro series is built to take your entertainment to the next level. These are Samsung’s first-ever Windows PCs with Super AMOLED[7] displays, meaning this leading technology is now available across the entire mobile portfolio—from smartwatches and smartphones, to tablets and PCs. The display is Eye Care-certified by SGS[8] producing less blue light emissions than standard LCDs to help your eyes stay fresh during your next binge watch after work. Intelligent Color Engine will automatically fine-tune your color space depending on the task at hand.[9] Movies and games will appear vivid and intense in DCI-P3 or AMOLED Native color profiles; and for tasks like photo editing, where you want your pictures to look true-to-life, the Galaxy Book Pro series will automatically optimize the color. 

All that beautiful content is complemented by crisp sound from AKG speakers. By turning on Dolby Atmos, you can experience even more immersive sound. 

More Productivity, Less Interruption with High-Performance Hardware

The Galaxy Book Pro Series is powered by next-generation hardware, including an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. The Galaxy Book Pro series is verified to the Intel® Evo™ platform, signifying an industry-leading balance of power, immersive graphics, always-on connectivity, and long-lasting battery life.[10] The Intelligent Performance Manager also deftly adapts to your computer position, environment, and system load. Automatically modulating fan noise, temperature and battery usage, it will balance performance and power consumption to deliver a smooth experience that lasts all day so you can say bye to lag and multitask seamlessly with ease. 

“Intel and Samsung have brought together the best of PC and smartphone experiences by combining our unique expertise and jointly investing thousands of engineering hours in these next-generation Galaxy Books.” said Gregory M. Bryant, Executive Vice President & General Manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel. “The new Galaxy Books are the thinnest 13-inch and 15-inch Intel Evo designs ever and deliver on the Evo promises of responsiveness, instant wake and long battery life. They also offer custom Bluetooth enablement and industry-leading connectivity including 5G and Wi-Fi 6E capabilities.” 

The Galaxy Book Pro series is packed with performance-boosting features that make daily work more productive and enjoyable. The reengineered Pro Keyboard includes a scissor mechanism that increases your speed and comfort with wide keys and rubber domes to provide a satisfying 1mm of travel length in near silence. The keyboard is paired with a 23 percent larger touchpad[11] for more room to scroll through websites or pinch to zoom into details. Quick Search software can search documents for key words quickly so you spend less time digging through your folders. 

With Studio mode, you can enjoy video call environments that help you look as you prefer regardless of your setting. Combined with Intelligent Noise Cancelling, which eliminates ambient noise from your microphone, you’ll be seen and heard with clarity. With Screen Recorder and Samsung Studio Plus, you can also make the next viral gameplay tutorial by recording your screen in combination with your voice and polish your video with easy editing tools.  

Galaxy Book Pro 360 comes with an upgraded S Pen[12] right in the box—now 2.5x thicker[13] for a more true-to-life writing experience. This user-favorite tool is great for taking notes during important meetings or classes—or unleashing your creativity when you’re off the clock. Sketch freely in the preloaded Clip Studio Paint[14], which offers professionally styled brush options that mimic real-world creations, or create time-lapse videos of your latest sketch and share with a community of creators with PENUP.

Together, we’re integrating Windows even deeper within the Galaxy ecosystem to create experiences that are simple, smooth, and stunning. I’m proud to be working together to help our customers stay connected, be more productive, more creative, and discover brand-new possibilities with Samsung and Microsoft.” 

The Galaxy Book Pro series works effortlessly with your other Galaxy devices for increased productivity and efficiency. Second screen[15] allows you to expand your display onto your Galaxy Tab for easier multitasking and enhanced productivity with Duplicate and Extend modes. With Link to Windows and Microsoft Your Phone[16] integration, stay in your flow by taking calls, checking notifications, accessing photos, messages and running up to five apps simultaneously from your smartphone directly on your desktop – all at once[17]. You can also organize all your photos from every device in one place.

Content will appear on your Galaxy Book Pro series in the same format as your Galaxy smartphone including special effects.

Galaxy devices are now more connected inside the ecosystem. Easy Bluetooth connection[18] connects your Galaxy Buds to your Galaxy Book Pro series immediately so you don’t have to change Bluetooth settings back and forth between devices. With Galaxy Book Smart Switch[19] , quickly transfer your favorite photos, movies, files, apps and even settings from your existing Windows PC to your Galaxy Book Pro series so you can get back to creating and connecting faster. Quick Share[20] for the Galaxy Book Pro series allows you to share content between your Galaxy devices or with classmates and coworkers in just a few clicks. Simply drag and drop multiple files and content between your Galaxy Book and your Galaxy smartphone with near instant transfer. In addition, with the auto-synced[21] Samsung Notes between Galaxy devices, you can jot down an idea and view it on any other device whenever you have a moment of creative inspiration. 

The Galaxy Book Pro series also doubles as the ultimate smart home hub with seamless SmartThings integration. With the SmartThings app incorporated in PCs for the first time on the Galaxy Book Pro series, turn off the lights, change the temperature, or even start kitchen appliances[22] – all from your couch. With SmartThings Find, quickly locate Bluetooth-paired Galaxy smartphones, tablets or wearables, and never fear losing a device again. With complete Samsung Galaxy ecosystem integration, the Galaxy Book Pro series is now the ultimate link between your devices, fully connecting your digital world.
