Samsung has launched a new range of laptops in Canada, including the Galaxy Book, Galaxy Book Pro, and Galaxy Book Pro 360, all designed to be ultra-portable and offer improved performance and next-gen connectivity.
All three laptops are Samsung’s most portable yet, with the Book weighing 1,610 grams and measuring 15.4mm, the Book 2 weighing 870 grams and measuring 11.2mm, and the Galaxy Book Pro 360 weighing 1,063 grams and measuring 11.5mm. They are also built with the same 6000-series aluminum alloy trusted by leading aerospace manufacturers around the world.
They boast long battery life and offer fast charging through a USB-C adapter. You can also experience up to three times faster Wi-Fi with these next generation Wi-Fi 6E Ready Galaxy Books. Users can enjoy more bandwidth and a fast 6GHz Internet connection at home or in the office, making it easier to connect and complete work on the go.
With Galaxy Book Pro on an AMOLED display, and on the Galaxy Book Pro 360 you can design and create using the touch screen. The Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 also feature an Intelligent Color Engine that automatically fine-tunes your colour depending on the task. Movies and games will also appear vivid and intense in DCI-P310 or AMOLED Native colour profiles, says Samsung.
For tasks like photo editing where you want your pictures to look true-to-life, the Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 will automatically shift to Adobe RGB, and offer a vibrant, cinematic 100 per cent colour volume. Both displays are also SGS Eye Care-certified, producing up to 70% less blue light emissions (comparted to previous Galaxy Books) to reduce eyestrain. The computers also offer AKG speakers and Dolby Atmos sound to deliver an immersive experience.
All three 2021 Galaxy Book laptops are powered by next-generation hardware, including an 11th Gen Intel Core processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics. The Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 are also certified on the Intel Evo platform. The Intelligent Performance Manager adapts to your computer position, environment, and system load, automatically modulating fan noise, temperature, and battery usage to balance performance and power consumption. This helps deliver a smooth experience so you can avoid lag and multitask seamlessly.
With Studio Mode, you can create ideal video call environments, combined with Intelligent Noise Cancelling to eliminates ambient noise from your microphone so you will be seen and heard with clarity. With Screen Recorder and Samsung Studio Plus, you can record your screen in combination with your voice, and then polish your videos afterward with editing tools.
Galaxy Book Pro 360 also comes with an upgraded S Pen15 right in the box, now 2.2x thicker for a more true-to-life writing experience.
