Samsung today announced the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro series, which features the flexibility of the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 with S Pen functionality and the connectivity of the Galaxy Book2 Pro with 5G, delivering a solution that is equally productive and portable.
The Galaxy Book2 Pro series is the first consumer PC lineup meeting Microsoft’s secured-core PC requirements, delivering an enhanced level of protection on Windows 11 with deeply integrated hardware, firmware and software to boost protection against potential cyber-attacks.
“Working with Samsung on the Galaxy Book2 Pro series is the next chapter in our proud collaboration to remove barriers between different operating systems and bring the best of Microsoft apps and services to the Galaxy Ecosystem,” said David Weston, director of Enterprise and OS Security, Microsoft. “Delivering the first consumer PC with Microsoft’s secured-core PC designation is a crucial step in this effort as today’s consumers deserve the same security protections they get in the office as they do while working remotely.”
The Galaxy Book2 Pro series also provides the best-in-class thin and light designs in sleek new colours combined with the freedom of 5G and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.
With up to 21 hours of battery life, consumers can move about their day without always being plugged in. Plus, the Galaxy Book2 Pro series’ super-fast USB Type-C universal charger5 can power every Galaxy mobile device,6 allowing you to carry just one charger while traveling.
“Our goal at Samsung is not just to create mobile technology, but to give our users unique experiences that fundamentally enhance their everyday lives,” said Hark-sang Kim, Executive Vice President & Head of New Computing R&D Team of Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics. “As part of this pursuit, we are reimagining the PC. Together, with seamless continuity across our Galaxy devices and secure mobility, users can unlock more efficiency and enable the possibilities of the office of tomorrow.”
The Galaxy Book2 Pro series features the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors that allow users to work, video call and game with smooth and reliable performance.
With video calls now a part of everyday life, the Galaxy Book2 Pro series features 1080p FHD webcams and wider field of view angles, while Studio Mode is also upgraded with a variety of new features, including Auto Framing, which keeps you perfectly centred even when you move around the frame. New background effects and Face Effect remove visual distractions from the background while enhancing your appearance, so you’ll look your best no matter where you video chat. To complete the video experience, GREENGUARD-certified AMOLED displays are now brighter for increased clarity.
Audio on the Galaxy Book Pro2 series is also enhanced for calls that sound just as good as they look. Bi-directional AI noise cancelling blocks distracting noises from both you and your colleague’s background. Additionally, the Max 5W output Smart Amp produces balanced sound at louder volumes. The Galaxy Book2 pro series also supports AKG and Dolby Atmos sound technology.
Through Single Sign-On with Samsung Account, users just need to enter their usernames and passwords once and instantly have access to Galaxy device apps and content including Samsung Gallery and Samsung Notes as well as have their Galaxy Galaxy Buds13 ready for pairing.
This new experience also takes users through the Galaxy Book Smart Switch process, helping them move old data, photos, settings and more, from their old PC regardless of manufacturer, to their new PC. And once transferred, the new Galaxy Book2 Pro series experience is more familiar than ever with the intuitive One UI Book 4. Users with other Galaxy devices will feel at home on their new PC with the same UI, apps and menus they’re already familiar with.
Furthermore, the Galaxy Book2 Pro series offers a variety of updates that make everyday interactions more seamless:
- Link to Windows / Microsoft Your Phone, which pairs your Galaxy smartphone to your Galaxy Book2 Pro series device, now offers Recent Apps, allowing users to swipe up on their Windows 11 taskbar to check their smartphone’s status and even select their most recently used smartphone apps to use directly on their desktops.
- With Samsung Multi Control, you can use your Galaxy Book2 Pro series’ keyboard and trackpad while navigating on your Galaxy Tab S8 screen for seamless interactions across devices.
- Private Share makes sharing sensitive work documents to colleagues easier than ever. It creates timed links with increased security options based on blockchain technology including view-only access, disabling screen capture abilities while viewing, and fully revoking access, so users keep the full control of their files even after sharing.
- Now, Quick Share can be used to send large files with the new Link Sharing option, which generates an easily shareable link that recipients can access to quickly share content from PC to other devices.
- The Galaxy Book2 Pro series also serves as the perfect hub for your SmartThings-compatible devices. Turn on the lights, set the temperature or check your security cams all from the convenience of the SmartThings Dashboard. With the new Bixby voice control functionality, you can control your IoT devices with the convenience of voice prompts. Plus, with SmartThings Find, if a user misplaces their Galaxy Book2 Pro series device, they can quickly locate it even if it is currently turned off.
The Galaxy Book2 Pro will be available in Graphite and Silver color options. The Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 will be available in Burgundy, Graphite and Silver. For more information on market availability, visit news.samsung.com/galaxy, or www.samsungmobilepress.com.
