Galaxy Book 2 Pro

First off, both laptops (Galaxy Book 2 Pro and the Pro 360) come in two models: the 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch models. The 15-6-inch model of the Pro 360 is the largest of them all (354.85 x 227.97 x 11.9 mm), and if the images we saw at the MWC 2022 are anything to go by, it is considerably thin.

So, no matter the model you choose, you can still expect portability. For a device this slim, you still get a decent number of ports around it. It features the Thunderbolt port on all models, two USB-C ports, and a microSD card slot. The 15-6-inch Pro 360 model comes with an extra port – an HDMI port.

Samsung has upgraded the webcam on the Galaxy Book 2 Pro series. The webcam (sitting above the display) has been upgraded to a full HD 1080p, a wider 87-degree view angle, and the same auto-framing feature found on the Galaxy S22.

For software, they all come fitted with Window 11. The Galaxy Book 2 Pro and the Pro 360 will be available in the market from April, starting at $1,049.99.
