Samsung is scheduled to introduce the Galaxy S23 smartphone on February 1, 2023. But it looks like the company will also introduce several new laptops at the same time.

Ishan Agarwal and MySmartPrice report that Samsung will launch five different laptops under the Samsung Galaxy Book 3 brand, as well as the Galaxy Book2 Go (which has already launched in France and the UK).

The Galaxy Book2 Go is a 14 inch laptop with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7C+ Gen 3 processor, WiFi 6E and optional support for 5G.

Folks looking for higher-performance laptops will have several models to choose from, including:

  • Samsung Galaxy Book3 and Galaxy Book3 360 laptops with 15 inch display options
  • Samsung Galaxy Book3 Pro with 14 or 16 inch display options
  • Samsung Galaxy Book3 Pro 360 with a 16 inch display
  • Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra with a 16 inch display

Unsurprisingly, models with 360 in the name will have touchscreen displays and 360-degree hinges, allowing you to use them in laptop, tablet, tent, or stand modes.

While I haven’t seen many specs or other details about the Book3 or Book3 360, MySmartPrice has some more information about the higher-priced Pro and Ultra models.

The Galaxy Book 3 Ultra will allegedly be a high-performance laptop with a 16 inch, 2880 x 1800 pixel AMOLED display and up to an Intel Core i9-13900H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics, 32GB of LPDDR5 memory and a 1TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD. There’s also room for a second SSD, allowing users to upgrade the storage without replacing the drive that comes with the laptop.

Despite its big screen and powerful hardware, the laptop is expected to weigh just under 4 pounds (1.8 kg) and measure 0.67 inches (17 mm) thick. It should have a 76 Wh battery, a 136 Wh power supply, and quad speakers.

Samsung’s Galaxy Book 3 Pro, meanwhile, is expected to come in two sizes. The 14 inch model has a 63 Wh battery, measures just 0.43 inches (11 mm) thick and weighs just 2.65 pounds (1.2 kg), while the 16 inch version has a 76 Wh battery, measures 0.51 inches (13 mm) thick and weighs 3.53 pounds (1.6 kg).

Both are said to feature 2880 x 1800 pixel AMOLED displays, a choice of Intel Core i5-1340P or Core i7-1360P processors, up to 16GB of DDR5 memory and up to 1TB of PCIe Gen 4 NVMe storage. The Galaxy Book 3 Pro series laptops feature Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics and have no discrete graphics option. And both laptops should come with 65W power adapters.

Models with 360-degree hinges will have touchscreen displays and support for a pressure-sensitive Samsung S-Pen.

  1. AMD screwed up here. They had a deal to let Samsung manufacture their Mendocino APUs on the Samsung 4nm process. Instead they got cold feet and let TSMC make them on their (equivalent) 6nm process, but Mendocino arrived much later and in much smaller quantities. Do that and it would have been easy to convince Samsung to use their Zen 3+ and their 7040 chips. Instead, the Samsung Galaxy Book is going to continue to be a showcase for Intel.

    Qualcomm’s allowing Samsung to continue to make some of their mobile chips is also why Samsung generally chooses their chips over MediaTek (and their own Exynos).

    1. I think the use of Snapdragons for Windows on ARM is more because Windows doesn’t seem to really be available for any ARM CPUs other than Snapdragon and getting an operating system to run on any non-systemready ARM CPU requires a lot of working around nonstandard firmware, memory maps, and vendor blobs that doesn’t have to be done with x86.

  2. The report also adds that Samsung may have received a regulatory KC certification for the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra (model number NT960XFH). The KC listing has revealed some of its design through a live image which was posted by a tipster named Sleep Kuma

  3. This is really, really depressing. The Galaxy Book(2) Pro is extremely light and the perfect travel companion. Easily blows the Dell XPS and the Macbook Air out of the water. Why is the Book3 Pro now going 14″? The single most important differentiating parameter, weight, is now going to vanish and it’s going to be just another crappy laptop in the WinTel sea. I hate marketing, what a stupid discipline.

    1. I completely agree. And they’re still avoiding u-processors, which gave the first generation the good battery life, unlike the next one, which had abysmal battery on an ultralight portable.

      It’s just not making much sense.

    2. Because the industry is standardizing on 14 and 16 inch models with Gaming laptops going to 18 inches.

      They can get larger screens by reducing bezels but not increasing the chassis by much.
