Samsung Galaxy Book Laptop Lineup: Windows 11, 5G, OLED

Samsung is hoping that consumers will buy one of its three new Galaxy laptops announced this week to try out the latest operating system, as PC manufacturers have an opportunity to update their ranges with Windows 11 out.

Samsung has rolled out a few exciting features to help attract customers.

The Samsung Galaxy Pro 360 5G and Samsung Odyssey will be available on November 11 for $1,400.

The 5G tax has been imposed.

The Samsung Galaxy Pro 360 has an AMOLED screen and can be configured with Windows 11. The upcoming Galaxy Pro 360 5G, on the other hand, adds—you guessed it—5G.

There are two versions to consider: a quad-core Intel Core i5-1130G7 1.8 GHz (boosting up to 4 GHz) with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage or a quad-core i7-1160G7 (2.1 GHz / 4.4 GHz) with 16GB of memory and 512GB of storage.

The laptops start at $1,100, but if you don’t want 5G, you can save $200 by going with the cheaper model (the 13.3-inch touchscreen AMOLED display has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels).

Both laptops feature a 13.3-inch touchscreen AMOLED display with a 1920×1080 resolution (there’s also a bigger 15.6-inches without 5G).

The Galaxy Book Pro 360 5G has dimensions of 0.45 inches thick and 2.43 pounds, making it one of the thinnest laptops on the market. Its classy design, combined with its aluminum construction and silver color, gives it a sophisticated look befitting thin-and-lights.

It features a Thunderbolt 4 connection and two USB-C ports, as well as an aluminum build with a silver finish that adds class to any device. We just hope the keyboard isn’t as flat as it appears.

Samsung Galaxy Book Odyssey: GPU choice

The Galaxy Book Odyssey has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Max-Q for people who require a dedicated graphics card.

That’s at the bottom of Nvidia’s current-gen mobile GPU range, but it’s still comparable to systems like the Dell XPS 15 9510 and Surface Laptop Studio, both of which have RTX 3050 Ti choices.

The GPU will be able to handle professional 3D apps and even some games at lower resolutions and settings when paired with a 6-core i7-11600H (2.9 / 4.6 GHz) CPU and up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Book is a less expensive alternative to the HP Envy x2.

The Samsung Galaxy Book S, which was announced in August and went on sale in mid-November, is the company’s most affordable hybrid laptop.

The specs include a quad-core i5-1135G7 (2.4 / 4.2 GHz) paired with 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage ($750), or an i7-1165G7 with 16GB of RAM and 512GB storage ($1000).

The 15.6-inch screen and 3D Touch support add some heft to the convertible, but it starts at almost half the price of the convertible.
