Samsung has introduced a new version of the Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 laptop. This model differs from the one shown at the beginning of the year, the main difference is in the processor. Instead of the 12th generation Intel Core i5 / i7, it uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 SoC. This provided the new product with support for 5G mobile networks and the Wi-Fi 6E protocol.
Otherwise, the novelty does not differ from the previous version. It has a 13.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with Full HD resolution. The novelty is equipped with a hinge that allows you to use the laptop as a tablet. The novelty also supports the S Pen stylus.
The laptop is equipped with three USB Type-C ports, a microSD card slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Other features include a backlit keyboard, 4W stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, a 1080p webcam, Bluetooth 5.2, and a fingerprint reader.
In terms of performance, the company claims that the Adreno GPU inside this laptop supports DirectX 12, and is 60% faster than the graphics subsystem in the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 SoC used in the Galaxy Book Go 5G model. However, there is no comparison with Intel yet.
Sales of the device will start on January 16. The novelty will be available at first exclusively in South Korea. The cost has not yet been specified, however, it is also unclear when the new product will be released to other markets.
Note that tests were conducted in the summer, which showed that Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is seriously inferior to the Apple M2 and even M1 processor.
