Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced the Galaxy Book2 Pro series, a flagship PC lineup featuring the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 with S Pen functionality and Galaxy Book2 Pro with 5G. Both form factors combine the flexibility and versatility needed for today’s evolving work and learning lifestyles and are built with Samsung’s mobile DNA. The result is a PC experience that is equally productive and portable.
Enterprise-Level Security Meets Mobile Freedom
As more students and professionals enjoy remote or hybrid working environments, safeguarding their data, identity and privacy continue to be a top priority for Samsung. To further protect users, the Galaxy Book2 Pro series is the first consumer PC lineup meeting Microsoft’s secured-core PC requirements. Previously designed for enterprise PCs in high-security industries such as finance, healthcare, and government, Galaxy Book2 Pro series’ secured-core PC designation delivers an enhanced level of protection on Windows 11 and features deeply integrated hardware, firmware, and software to boost protection against potential cyber-attacks. Now, everyone can enjoy advanced security for enhanced peace of mind.
“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 offers the advantages of enterprise security inside an ultra-portable, stylish chassis that easily travels wherever you go. They provide mobility with best-in-class thin and light designs in sleek new colors 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 charger can power every Galaxy mobile device, allowing you to carry just one charger while traveling.
The Ultimate Power To Do More
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. Samsung continues its proud partnership with Intel, working closely with the chipmaker to ensure full processor optimization with Galaxy Book2 Pro series hardware and software.
“We continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in our longstanding partnership with Samsung through increased resources, deeper platform integration and more optimization using our newest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors,” said Jim Johnson, Senior Vice President and interim general manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel Corporation. “With the Galaxy Book2 Pro series, the results speak for themselves. These are some of the lightest, thinnest, and most powerful PCs we’ve ever had the opportunity to work on.”
With video calls now a part of everyday life, the Galaxy Book2 Pro series is upgraded for high-quality call experiences every time you connect. Now featuring 1080p FHD webcams and a wider field of view angles, your video feed will look clear during every call. Studio Mode is also upgraded with a variety of new features, including Auto Framing, which keeps you perfectly centered 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 Book2 Pro 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, so every word is heard with full clarity. Additionally, the Max 5W output Smart Amp produces balanced sound at louder volumes. Galaxy Book2 Pro series also supports AKG and Dolby Atmos® sound technology.
Furthermore, the newly added Samsung Device Care application included in the Galaxy Book2 Pro series now allows users to check their device efficiency and provides ways to optimize power and storage to ensure consistent performance throughout the lifespan of the device.
Seamless Continuity for the Connected World
The Galaxy Book2 Pro series offers a variety of connected experiences inside the Galaxy Ecosystem that eliminate friction in users’ daily lives. The new Galaxy Book Experience helps users get familiar with unique Galaxy features and transfers their content onto their new device. 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 Buds 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, 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 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.
Galaxy for the Planet
Samsung understands the importance of producing technology in responsible and sustainable methods. The Galaxy Book2 Pro series advances Samsung’s ongoing commitment to minimize its environmental footprint and help Galaxy users adopt more sustainable lifestyles. Samsung recently announced a new high-performance, eco-conscious material that repurposes discarded fishing nets to reduce plastic waste in the ocean, and this material is now featured in the touchpad holder and the inner bracket of the Galaxy Book2 Pro series. Expanding the presence of ocean-bound plastics in Galaxy technology marks a notable achievement in the company’s sustainability journey. Through Galaxy for the Planet, Samsung is powering its scale, innovations, and open collaborations to deliver tangible environmental actions across the MX Business and its entire product line-up to preserve the planet for generations to come.
Additionally, new algorithms extend the battery lifecycles and lower standby power reducing the need for frequent battery replacements. Furthermore, AMOLED panels received the GREENGUARD gold certification for eco-conscious products by the Underwriters Laboratories for minimizing VOC emissions for improved indoor air quality. Finally, Galaxy Book2 Pro series packaging uses sustainably sourced paper boxes and mold trays.
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.
