from today Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event The company kept its promise to provide the “most powerful Galaxy device” to date, with the unveiling of three new laptops: the Galaxy Book, Galaxy Book Pro And Galaxy Book Pro 360.
These laptops combine some of the latest mobile technology on the market today, including 11th generation Intel processors and 5G connectivity, along with designs that are incredibly thin and lightweight and the kind of advanced build quality we have come to expect from leading Samsung phones like Samsung Galaxy S21.
Samsung’s new laptops have also undergone tough testing, so not only are they thin and light, but they also need to be portable and usable in a range of different environments.
The past year has seen major changes in the number of our work, something Samsung brought up during the launch of its new Galaxy laptops. According to the company, these units are designed to accommodate our new working lives.
This means, among other things, long battery life and the keyboard and touchpad are comfortable to use.

The new Galaxy Book Pro is lighter, weighing between 0.87 and 0.88 kg, depending on the configurations you choose, for the model with a screen size of 13.3 inches and a thickness of only 11.2 mm. This will be an incredibly thin and light laptop – anything under 1K is really impressive.
Prices for the 13.3-inch Galaxy Book Pro model start at 11,490 SEK. It’s an impressive price considering what is on offer. It’s almost the same price as before MacBook Air (M1, 2020) And a little less than Dell XPS 13, Which may be its biggest competitor.
The Galaxy Book Pro will also be available in the 15.6-inch model. This weighs a little more and has a weight of 1.05 kg (which is still really light) and is 11.7 mm thick. Prices for this model start at 12,490 SEK.
Finally, we have the Galaxy Book Pro 360, a convertible laptop that weighs 1.04 / 1.1 kg and is 11.5 mm thick for the 13.3-inch model, or 1.39 kg and 11.9 mm thick for the 15.6-inch model.

The Galaxy Book Pro models also have AMOLED screens, support for Vesa DisplayHDR 500, and the DCI-P3 color gamut, which can provide among the most stylish displays in the laptop market today. We are really looking forward to testing these laptops for our next reviews. Incidentally, the Galaxy Book Pro series also supports Dolby Atmos.
When it comes to screens, Galaxy Book Pro models have a ‘Secret Screen’ feature, which can be activated via a keyboard shortcut. This activates the screen filter which makes it difficult to see the screen contents from other angles. This is something we’ve seen before on HP laptops and it works well – something that can make you feel calm if you work with sensitive documents in places with a lot of people.
These new laptops will go on sale on May 14th, but pre-orders will be available from April 28th. If you order before May 13th, you’ll receive a pair of original Galaxy Buds Pro wireless headphones with your purchase.
Although the Samsung Galaxy brand is one of the biggest names in the mobile world, the company has found it more difficult to win consumers over the laptop side. But with these new devices, Samsung clearly hopes to achieve the same success on the laptop front as the mobile interface. But will they succeed? Well, we simply have to wait and see. Feel free to check in here on TechRadar at regular intervals, as we will write reviews for all devices as soon as we receive them for testing.
