It was in April that Samsung announced ultra-compact notebooks Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360. Three months later, both models land in Brazil.

Galaxy Book Pro

The Galaxy Book Pro is a notebook with a 15.6-inch AMOLED screen and full HD resolution. According to Samsung, this technology has several advantages, such as reducing blue light emission. Another one, which we know well, is the vividness of colors. It is also possible to make color adjustments according to the purpose of use: games, movies, photos, among others.

AKG speakers with Dolby Atmos complement the audiovisual features.

Performance is another important factor, of course. For that matter, Samsung equipped the Galaxy Book Pro sold in Brazil with an 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor with Iris Xe graphics, 16 GB RAM and 1 TB NVMe SSD.

Other attributes include body with aluminum elements that make the notebook light (1.05 kg) and resistant, backlit keyboard, fingerprint reader integrated into the on/off button, 68 Wh battery with 65 W recharge (via USB- C) and WiFi 6E.

Galaxy Book Pro 360

The Galaxy Book Pro 360 shares several features with the Galaxy Book Pro, such as the processor, backlit keyboard, and low weight (1.04 kg). The big difference of the model is the screen: the panel is still AMOLED, but it is sensitive to touches and has an opening of 360 degrees (hence the number in the name).

In other words, the notebook is 2 in 1, so it can be turned into a tablet. Because of this, the equipment comes with an S Pen (no Bluetooth) and some apps for use with the accessory, such as Clip Studio Paint.
