Samsung Galaxy Book Pro and Go

Three days ago, the first rumors about two new notebooks from the Korean manufacturer were leaked. A well-known leaker has now unveiled some possible specifications of the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Go on Twitter. The latter should integrate a Qualcomm processor. The third model expected is the Galaxy Book Pro 360 convertible.

Galaxy Book Pro and Go: specifications

Based on the image shared on Twitter, the Galaxy Book Pro could be an updated version of the Galaxy Book Ion. The notebook should have an aluminum frame (blue and silver colors) and a 13.3 or 15.6 inch AMOLED screen with full HD resolution.

Other possible specifications are: 11th generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 processors (Tiger Lake), Intel Iris Xe integrated GPU and discrete NVIDA GeForce MX450 (15.6-inch model only), Tunderbolt 4 port (USB Type-C) and optional LTE connectivity. The Galaxy Book Pro 360 will probably have similar hardware equipment, but also a 5G version.

The Galaxy Book Go should instead have a 14-inch full HD screen and integrate Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c / 8cx, 4/8 processors GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128/256 GB of UFS storage. For the Snapdragon 8cx SoC the abbreviation Gen. X is indicated, so it could be an update of the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2.

The operating system will obviously be Windows 10. There will be proprietary software, including Samsung Notes, Samsung DeX and the app that allows connection to smartphones. Both notebooks are expected in May.

Specs leak for the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Go laptops

Samsung appears set to launch two more thin and light laptops from its Galaxy Book line.

  • Specs leaked for Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Go laptops.
  • The Galaxy Book Pro appears to be an upgrade to the Galaxy Book Ion.
  • The Galaxy Book Go runs on a new Qualcomm 8CX (Gen .X) processor, according to the leak, which could be a placeholder name.
  • Specs leaked online for the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Go laptops. The leaks come courtesy of Twitter user 'WalkingCat' and include quite a few details. While they've proven to be a reliable source of leaks in the past, it's always important to take leaks with a grain of salt.

    Based on the leaks, it appears that the Galaxy Book Pro is either a sequel to the Galaxy Book Ion or is at least a natural comparison to the Ion. The leak shows a comparison graphic placing the laptops head-to-head. The Galaxy Book Pro has an 11th Gen Intel Core processer, Intel Iris Xe graphics, and an NVIDIA MX450 GPU. It has an FHD AMOLED display and Thunderbolt 4. It also has an option for LTE.

    The Galaxy Book Pro also seems to have many features for connecting to other devices, including 2nd Screen Easy Pairing, Samsung DeX, and Link to Windows.

    The Galaxy Book Go is a Windows 10 on ARM device. The leaked graphic for the Galaxy Book Go says that it runs on a 8CX (Gen .X) processor. That could be a placeholder name for a new processor, but it's not clear at this point. The graphic compares to 8CX Gen.X processor to an Intel Core i5 and the 8CX Gen.1.

    Based on the leaks, the two new laptops appear to be thin devices that build off of their predecessors. We'll have to wait to see when Samsung officially announces the devices.
