Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today unveiled the brand new 2021 Galaxy Book laptop series – the Galaxy Book, Galaxy Book Pro, and Galaxy Book Pro 360 - a new generation of Samsung computing technology. With brilliantly vibrant screens and ultralight designs, the completely redesigned 2021 Galaxy Book portfolio combines the power of a PC with the mobile DNA of a Samsung Galaxy smartphone to deliver stunning entertainment, creativity, and mobility.

In collaboration with industry-leading partners Microsoft and Intel, Samsung designed a new approach to mobile computing where PCs, Galaxy, and IoT devices work together with seamless continuity. Built to live at the center of your Galaxy ecosystem, these new Galaxy Book devices are tailor-made for today’s multi-device world backed by a vast ecosystem of connected devices and services. Additionally, both the Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 are Intel® Evo™ certified.
“Over the last decade, we at Samsung have pioneered countless exciting mobile experiences. New hardware, new software, new ways to stay connected and give you the freedom to live your life to the fullest,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “The new Galaxy Book, Book Pro and Pro 360 are true mobile computing for the connected world, enabling ultra-light, yet mighty portability, boundless connectivity, and a window into your wider Galaxy ecosystem.”
Inspired by Mobile Design, Built for Modern Routines
The 2021 Galaxy Book portfolio is designed around the needs and routines of modern mobile-first users to help make day-to-day experiences simpler, smoother, and more intuitive. These laptops are Samsung’s most portable yet — with Galaxy Book1 weighing 1,610g and measuring 15.4mm, Galaxy Book Pro2 weighing 870g3 and measuring 11.2mm, and Galaxy Book Pro 3604 weighing 1,063g and measuring 11.5mm. That compactness doesn’t come at the expense of durability either, as both PCs are built with the same 6000-series aluminum alloy trusted by leading aerospace manufacturers around the world.

Battery life is also crucial to mobility, and the newest Galaxy Books are built to keep you going through the day. With long-lasting battery5, you will rarely have to worry about pausing your task to track down an outlet. But if you do need to charge up in a hurry, the Galaxy Book, Book Pro, and Book Pro 360 support 65W Fast charging6 through a USB-C adapter7.
You can also experience up to 3x faster Wi-Fi with these next generation Wi-Fi 6E Ready8 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.
Immersive Entertainment Experiences
Equipped with cutting-edge hardware, the Galaxy Book Pro and Book Pro 360 are built to take your entertainment to the next level. With Galaxy Book Pro, enjoy your favourite movies on a brilliant AMOLED display, and on the Galaxy Book Pro 360, design, create, and experience everything on a rich, Super AMOLED display complete with touch screen functionality. AMOLED is Samsung’s leading technology featured across the entire mobile portfolio from smartwatches and smartphones, to tablets and PCs.
The Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 also feature an Intelligent Color Engine that automatically fine-tunes your colour depending on the task.9 Movies and games will also appear vivid and intense in DCI-P310 or AMOLED Native colour profiles. 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 volume11. Both displays are also SGS Eye Care-certified12, producing up to 70% less blue light emissions (comparted to previous Galaxy Books) to reduce eyestrain.
All that beautiful content is complemented by crisp sound from AKG speakers and Dolby Atmos sound to deliver an immersive experience.
More Productivity, Less Interruption with High-Performance Hardware
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, providing a leading balance of power, immersive graphics, always-on connectivity, and long-lasting battery life.13 The Intelligent Performance Manager even 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.
“Intel and Samsung are delivering premier computing experiences built on mobility, blazing fast connectivity, and real-world performance – all to help unlock people’s potential,” said Gregory M. Bryant, Intel executive vice president & general manager, Client Computing Group. “With Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360, Samsung is launching some of the best Intel EVO designs on the market, paving a new standard for computing.”

Quick Search software can scan documents for key words, recognize the phonetic equivalent for word characters, and sift through all your files - pulling up relevant results so you spend less time digging through folders.
With Studio Mode, you can create ideal video call environments that help you look your best. Combined with Intelligent Noise Cancelling that eliminates ambient noise from your microphone, 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 easy editing tools.
Galaxy Book Pro 360 also comes with an upgraded S Pen15 right in the box—now 2.2x thicker16 for a more true-to-life writing experience.
