Samsung Galaxy Book Pro: they shine for their AMOLED screen, but above all for their prodigious thinness and lightness

Samsung has announced the launch of two new notebook models geared, at least by name, to professional users. It is about the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro offered with 13.3 and 15.6-inch displays.

The new models stand out especially for their thinness, especially in the case of the 13.3-inch model, which is only 11.2mm thick. They also integrate 11th generation Intel Core processors and although they arrive with Windows 10 Pro they are ready to be updated to Windows 11 Pro.

This is how Samsung makes money: the secret is on the IPHONE

The thinness and the lightness by flag

If there is one element in which these two models stand out, it is in their thinness and their weight: we are facing two extraordinarily light laptops, and even the 15.6-inch model barely exceeds a kilogram in weight.

Its aluminum construction and its extreme thinness also contribute to this: 13.3-inch model is only 11.18mm thin, but the 15.6-inch model does not go much further, and it also falls below 12 mm in thickness.

And that’s without compromising too much more batteries than solvents (63 and 68 Wh respectively, they ensure that they can last up to 20 hours) and a selection of ports in which we might have liked to see some more connectors, but that still offers a fairly diverse selection and even maintains a USB-A port.

An AMOLED screen that shines above everything else

There is also protagonist in its spec sheet, and that’s the AMOLED screen which according to Samsung is the most advanced ever integrated into a team of the Galaxy Book family.

That screen therefore promises a good experience that continues to bet on the 16: 9 format and a Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080). The multimedia bet is completed with the AKG certification of its speakers, which have support for Dolby Atmos.

The rest of the spec sheet is, we would say, even modest. Processors are adequate, but watch out for those 8 GB of RAM of the 13.3-inch model that can limit performance if we look for more room for maneuver.

We do have good wireless connectivity (Intel’s Evo certification raises that Wi-Fi 6 connectivity support) and the integrated TPM chip ensures that we can upgrade to Windows 11 Pro when that version is available for download.
