Samsung is readying a new laptop series for release under the “Galaxy Book 3” moniker. The company plans to unveil the lineup at Unpacked on February 1, and leaks have started pouring in. Specifications for the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra emerged earlier today, and now they’re followed by leaked Galaxy Book 3 Pro specs.
According to the new bits of information that emerged through Twitter (via @_snoopytech_), the Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Pro will be available in two sizes. Both have AMOLED screens, but the two models are split between 14 and 16-inch sizes.
The AMOLED display has a WQXGA+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate for both models. In addition, the Galaxy Book 3 Pro should be powered by an Intel Core i5-1340P processor (Intel 13th Generation). The CPU has four performance cores, eight efficiency cores, and sixteen threads in total. The max Turbo frequency for this CPU is 4.60GHz.
Galaxy Book 3 Pro is an ultralight notebook
There’s no information on the GPU, which means that the Book 3 Pro could use an onboard Intel solution. In contrast, the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra will offer an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 or an RTX 4070 GPU. Keep in mind that these are graphics chips for laptops rather than full-sized graphics cards for desktops.
In terms of memory, the Galaxy Book 3 Pro should have 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. It’s not entirely clear if this will be the only configuration Samsung will offer.
Other details include Windows 11 Home, two color options — Beige and Graphite — and an ultralight construction weighing only 0.87 Kg (presumably for the 14-inch variant).
Samsung will announce the Galaxy Book 3 Pro and the rest of the ultrabook series at Unpacked on February 1. Pricing details are unknown. However, the company is accepting online reservations, and early adopters can earn $50 in Samsung Credit. Samsung sweetens the deal for customers who reserve both a Galaxy S23 flagship phone and a Galaxy Book 3 laptop and offers $100 credit.
