A new version of the Galaxy Book Pro 360 has arrived, appropriately called the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360. Samsung's latest convertible laptop will be available with Intel Alder Lake processors, in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch screen sizes and will feature Super AMOLED displays. S Pen support is on board too, but there are no dedicated GPU options.

Samsung has announced the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360, the convertible version of the Galaxy Book2 Pro. Sporting 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch displays, the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 has Core i5 and Core i7 Alder Lake processors, plus Super AMOLED displays (1,920 x 1,080). The Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 builds on 2021's model, which we rated highly when we reviewed the 13.3-inch model last summer.

According to Samsung's specification sheet, the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 will measure 302.5 x 202 x 11.5 mm for the 13.3-inch model and 354.85 x 227.97 x 11.9 mm in the case of the 15.6-inch version. Likewise, the former is lighter at 1.04 kg, with the latter tipping the scales at 1.41 kg. Both models will be available in Burgundy, Graphite and Silver colourways, though.

Unlike the Galaxy Book2 Pro, all Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 models come with integrated GPUs only. In comparison, Samsung offers the Galaxy Book2 Pro with new Intel Arc Graphics dedicated GPUs if you opt for the 15.6-inch edition. Also, the full-sized HDMI port from the larger Galaxy Book2 Pro is missing. Instead, the 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 feature the following ports:

  • 1x Thunderbolt 4
  • 2x USB Type-C
  • 1x 3.5 mm headphone/microphone jack
  • 1x microSD card reader

Moreover, the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 ships with a 65 W USB Type-C power adapter and an S-Pen, regardless of which model you choose. Similarly, Samsung has included an FHD webcam across all configurations, a fingerprint reader and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity. The company states that both sizes will be configurable with up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 1 TB of NVMe storage as well. Predictably, the 15.6-inch version has a larger battery than the 13.3-inch, although there is only a 5 Wh difference (63 Wh/68 Wh).

Like the Galaxy Book2 Pro, the 360 model will be available with Core i5-1240P and Core i7-1260P processors. For reference, the 13.3-inch edition starts at €1,299 with a Core i5-1240P, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage but costs €300 more for a Core i7 processor with double the memory on all counts. By contrast, the 15.6-inch edition comes in at €1,399 and rises to €1,899 with a Core i7-1260P, 16 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD.
