Korean tech giant discloses flagship PC line
Samsung Electronics disclosed the Galaxy Book2 Pro series, a flagship PC lineup, during the Mobile World Congress that opened its four-day run in Barcelona on Feb. 28.
The Seoul-based tech giant said that the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 with S Pen functionality and Galaxy Book2 Pro with 5G combine flexibility and versatility.
The new models are successors of the Galaxy Book Pro 360, which debuted last May to boost the 2021 revenue of Samsung Electronics’ computer business by more than 60 percent from a year ago.
“Our goal at Samsung is not just to create mobile technology, but to give our users unique experiences that fundamentally enhance their everyday lives,” Samsung Executive Vice President Kim Hark-sang said.
“As part of this pursuit, we are reimagining the PC. Together, with seamless continuity across our Galaxy devices and secure mobility, users can unlock more efficiency and enable the possibilities of the office of tomorrow.”
Samsung said that the Galaxy Book2 Pro series is the first consumer PC lineup meeting Microsoft’s secured-core PC1 requirements.
“Working with Samsung on the Galaxy Book2 Pro series is the next chapter in our proud collaboration to remove barriers between different operating systems and bring the best of Microsoft apps and services to the Galaxy Ecosystem,” Microsoft official David Weston said.
“Delivering the first consumer PC with Microsoft’s secured-core PC designation is a crucial step in this effort as today’s consumers deserve the same security protections they get in the office as they do while working remotely.”
Samsung noted that the Galaxy Book2 Pro series offers the advantages of enterprise security inside an ultra-portable, stylish chassis that easily travels wherever people go.
The company also said that with up to 21 hours of battery life, four consumers can move about their day without always being plugged in.
