Barcelona, ​​Gizmologi – Samsung has actually had a laptop product line for a long time. But the echo is less audible even compared to competitors who sell smartphones. Now, they are ready to be more aggressive with the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro series.

At MWC 2022 Barcelona, ​​laptops announced the Galaxy Book2 Pro series. This laptop is built with Samsung’s mobile DNA, combined with the flexibility and versatility of a laptop for a more productive and portable PC experience.

The Galaxy Book2 Pro series also advances Samsung’s ongoing commitment to minimizing its environmental footprint. Like the Galaxy S22 series flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro laptop also uses environmentally friendly materials in the form of recycled fishing nets. This material is now featured on the touchpad mount and inner bracket of the Galaxy Book2 Pro series. While the packaging of the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro uses a paper box and print tray that is sourced sustainably.

Based on Windows 11

They deliver mobility with best-in-class thin and light designs in sleek new colors combined with the freedom of 5G and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.

With a battery life of up to 21 hours, consumers can move without having to always be connected to electricity. Plus, the Galaxy Book2 Pro series super-fast USB Type-C 5 universal charger can power any Galaxy 6 mobile device, allowing you to take just one charger with you on the go.

Even though the Galaxy ecosystem is strengthened, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro laptop continues to carry the tradition of most laptops, namely using the Windows operating system and Intel processor.

David Weston, Microsoft director of Enterprise and OS Security said working with Samsung on the Galaxy Book2 Pro series is the next chapter in its collaboration to remove barriers between different operating systems and bring Microsoft’s best apps and services to the Galaxy Ecosystem.

“Delivering the first consumer PCs with the Microsoft secure core PC designation is an important step in this effort because today’s consumers deserve the same security protections they get in the office as they do when working remotely,” he said.

As more students and professionals enjoy remote or hybrid working environments, safeguarding their data, identity and privacy continue to be a top priority for Samsung. To further protect users, the Galaxy Book 2 Pro series is the first line of consumer PCs to meet the requirements of Microsoft secured-core PCs. This laptop provides an enhanced level of protection in Windows 11 and features deeply integrated hardware, firmware, and software for increased protection against potential cyberattacks.

Powered by Intel Core Gen 12

Samsung continues its proud partnership with Intel, ensuring full processor optimization with Galaxy Book2 Pro series hardware and software.

Jim Johnson, Senior Vice President and interim general manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel Corporation, said: “We are working to continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in our long-term partnership with Samsung through increased resources, deeper platform integration.

“We are optimizing more using the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors. With the Galaxy Book2 Pro series, the results speak for themselves. These are some of the lightest, thinnest and most powerful PCs we’ve ever worked on,” said Jim.

With video calling now a part of everyday life, the Galaxy Book2 Pro series is enhanced for a high-quality calling experience every time it’s connected. This laptop has a 1080p FHD webcam with a wider field of view. The Studio Mode feature is also enhanced with various new features, including Auto Framing which keeps it centered even when moving around the frame.

To complete the video experience, the GREENGUARD-certified AMOLED display is now brighter and clearer. While the audio on the Galaxy Book2 Pro series is also enhanced with two-way AI Noise Canceling. In addition, the Max 5W 12 Smart Amp output delivers balanced sound at louder volumes. The Galaxy Book2 Pro series also supports AKG and Dolby Atmos sound technologies.

Additionally, the newly added Samsung Device Care app included in the Galaxy Book2 Pro series now allows users to check the efficiency of their device and provides a way to optimize power and storage to ensure consistent performance throughout the life of the device.
