Design and Display

First off, you should know that the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro series comes in two models (Galaxy Book 2 Pro and the Pro 360). For this series, it looks like Samsung’s focus point was portability and weight, as both laptops weigh less and are a lot more portable when compared with their predecessor. The Huawei MateBook X Pro is also a relatively portable laptop (at just 5.4mm thick).

The Huawei MateBook X Pro comes with a large 14.2-inch display, slightly larger than the 13.3-inch display on the Galaxy Book 2 Pro. However, do not forget that the Galaxy Book 2 Pro has a 15.6-inch model for those that love large displays. That said, the 360 hinge on the Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 makes it a better option to go for. It is a suitable laptop for touchscreen and stylus use – features they both support.

Hardware and Software

Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy Book 2 Pro benefits from the latest generation of Intel’s processor – the 12th Gen Intel i5. It also features 8GB RAM, up to 1TB Internal storage space, and up to 21-hour battery life. However, we were left rather disappointed when Huawei announced that the MateBook X Pro would be powered by the 11th Gen Intel i5 processor. They, however, made up for that with the 16GB RAM and 1TB internal storage capacity.

Other hardware features on the Galaxy Book 2 Pro include the Wi-Fi 6E 802.11ax 2×2, Bluetooth 5.1, Thunderbolt 4 support, USB-C ports, Headphone jack port, and a microSD slot, while the MateBook X Pro features 4 USB-C ports. For the operating system, both laptops are similar: they both run on Windows 11 OS.
