Samsung has had a busy year when it comes to phone and tablet launches. The company launched several devices across different price points, including the Galaxy S22 series, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Tab S8 series. The company also launched many other products across different categories. Samsung is ending the year with the launch of a new laptop. The company has launched the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 360.
Now you might wonder if the laptop was launched earlier this year and you are right. The company launched the Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 with an Intel 12th gen processor in February 2022. The company has now launched another variant of the laptop with a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC.
The new Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 chipset inside. It is the first 5nm-based SoC for Windows-on-ARM devices. The chipset is not new as it has been available for quite some time. The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is claimed to deliver up to 85 per cent better multi-core CPU performance and 60 per cent improved GPU performance.
The rest of the hardware is the same as the one with the Intel 12th gen chipset. Samsung launched the new variant with a Snapdragon chipset in South Korea for 1.89 million WON, which is roughly Rs 1,23,800. In comparison, the Intel variant was launched in India at a starting price of Rs 1,15,990.
For the extra price, users get superior connectivity with built-in 5G and Wi-Fi 6E support. That being said, Samsung has not confirmed if the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy Book2 Pro is coming to India anytime soon.
The 2-in-1 laptop has a 13.3-inch screen. The AMOLED display can flip 360 degrees and can be used as a tablet. It also supports Samsung’s S Pen. The screen also has a peak brightness of 500 nits.
The laptop is claimed to offer almost double the battery life compared to the Intel variant. Samsung claims that the Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered variant offers up to 35 hours of battery life. In comparison, the Intel variant is claimed to offer up to 21 hours of battery life on a single charge. The laptop has multiple ports on offer, including a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, etc. The Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 weighs about 1.04 kg and is 11.5mm thick. It boots Windows 11 out of the box and complies with Microsoft’s Secured-Cored PC standard.
