Besides the all-new Galaxy S23 series, Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy Book 3 series. Compared with the predecessors, the new laptop looks sleeker, and premium, as well as has a larger touchpad. The Galaxy Book 3 series isn't coming to Malaysia, though, but here's what you need to know.
From Samsung's presentation, the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra features the latest 13th Gen Intel Core H-processor. Consumers may get either the Intel Core i7 or Intel Core i9 variant, alongside an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 or 4070 GPU, up to 32GB of LPDDR5 6000MHz RAM and up to 1TB of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage.
The Galaxy Book 3 series models all have the same 16-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display and it's the first time that Samsung integrated it into the laptop lineup. With up to 120Hz refresh rate, a 120% DCI-P3 colour volume and 3K resolution, it's very good for entertainment and video work, on paper.
Samsung seems confident that the Galaxy Book 3 series can also be used for gaming, which makes sense with the given specs. It also has a quad-speakers sound system and studio-quality mic for voice-call-over gaming and online meeting. Also, since it's a Galaxy device, having a Galaxy Book 3 model lets you connect with your Galaxy phone via phone-to-PC connectivity.
Samsung's phone-to-PC connectivity feature is an upgrade as users can use the phone like an extra device and work like a PC with the usual keyboard command functions, such as copy-and-paste and others. Media files are also automatically synced when paired and are uncompressed when transferred.
There's also a Galaxy Book 3 Pro 360 for those who want a more flexible laptop, which can transform into tablet or tent mode, or the Galaxy Book 3 Pro for casual users. Moreover, users can get an extra S Pen for the Galaxy Book 3 series which is a separate accessory.
In terms of price and availability, below are the details for the Galaxy Book 3 series:
- Galaxy Book 3 Pro - from $1249 (~RM5285)
- Galaxy Book 3 Pro 360 - from $1399 (~RM5920)
- Galaxy Book 3 Ultra - from $2199 (~RM9306)
