Samsung Galaxy Book4 Ultra review - A multimedia laptop with 120 Hz OLED & RTX 4050

Samsung's answer to the MacBook Pro 16. The 16-inch Galaxy Book4 Ultra multimedia laptop is Samsung's answer to the Apple MacBook Pro 16. In addition to its 120 Hz high-resolution AMOLED panel, there is a current Core Ultra processor as well as a GeForce RTX 4050 laptop. However, the Ultra doesn't come cheap.

Samsung is updating its Galaxy Book series to its fourth generation and with the Galaxy Book 4 Ultra, Samsung would like to compete directly with Apple's MacBook Pro 16. In comparison to the previous year's model, not much has changed with only the Core i7-13700H being replaced by the Meteor Lake Core Ultra 7 155H chip.   

Nothing has also changed when it comes to the price with the base model and its Core Ultra 7 155H and GeForce RTX 4050 laptop costing $2,399. This continues to be very ambitious, especially given the meagre storage specs (16 GB of RAM, 512 GB SSD). For $2,999, you can get the top variant with the Core Ultra 9 185H, the GeForce RTX 4070 laptop as well as more memory and storage (32 GB of RAM, 1 TB SSD).

Case - The Galaxy Book comes with a metal case

The case design is unchanged compared to the old model. The dark gray aluminum casing (Moonstone Gray) is very premium and the surfaces not only provide pleasant feedback but are also not sensitive to fingerprints and can be easily cleaned. However, the thick bottom screen bezel is noticeable (1.7 cm) and somewhat spoils the overall appearance.

The Galaxy Book4 Ultra makes a good impression both in terms of build quality as well as stability. The keyboard area only gives slightly and the whole base unit is torsion-resistant. On top of that, there are no creaking noises to speak of. The display lid itself is significantly thinner and similarly very stable. The hinges are well adjusted and mostly manage to help prevent any wobble and the lid can also be comfortably opened with one hand. The maximum opening angle sits at 135 degrees.

The thick screen bezel  is also noticeable in terms of the thickness of the device with the Book4 Ultra taking up the most space compared to its piers. With a height of 16.5 mm and a weight of 1.82 kg, the review device sits in the middle of the pack. The supplied 140-watt PSU brings another 351 grams to the scales.

Features - Thunderbolt 4 & HDMI 2.1

In addition to the modern USB-C interfaces which include Thunderbolt 4, the Galaxy Book4 Ultra also offers a regular USB-A port as well as HDMI 2.1. However, one of the USB interfaces can also be used for the PSU. No complaints can be made regarding the port location on both of the rear sides of the device. The HDMI connector is connected directly to the Nvidia GPU but not both USB-C ports. When using an external monitor, the dGPU doesn't always automatically operate simultaneously.

SD card reader

In our test, the microSD card reader on the right-hand side achieved averaged speeds of ~80 to 90 MB/s paired with our reference card, the Angelbird AV Pro V60. However, the reader itself is problematic (spring mechanism) because the connection point sits very deep inside the case thereby making it difficult to either easily install or remove the card without the help of a tool/aid.

Communication

Soldered Wi-Fi module

Samsung uses the familiar Intel AX211 module which supports the Wi-Fi 6E standard in 6 GHz networks as well as Bluetooth 5.3. Working in tandem with our Asus reference router, the transfer speeds are very good and stable. Despite this, the new Galaxy Book4 Ultra doesn't support Wi-Fi 7.

Webcam

When it comes to the 1080p webcam, there are no changes and the quality remains average. The device lacks both a mechanical shutter as well as an IR module for face recognition. Thanks to the Meteor Lake chip's new NPU, Studio Effects (background blur, eye contact, head tracking) for the webcam is supported directly from the operating system, regardless of the app used.

Maintenance

Hidden screws under the fitted rubber feet
Hidden screws under the fitted rubber feet

On the base of the unit, four screws are hidden under the fitted rubber feet. But, even without the screws, the base lid is secured very firmly since there are additional fixing clips in the middle. Inside the device, you are confronted by both fans and the large vapor chamber. There are two slots for M.2 2280 SSDs and although the screwed-in battery can be replaced, all the other components are soldered.

Input devices - Huge touchpad, average keyboard

Samsung has equipped the Galaxy Book4 Ultra with a keyboard and a numerical keypad. The typing experience suffers slightly from key travel that is too shallow as well as an audible keystroke noise and, in direct comparison to the regular Galaxy Book4 Pro, the strikes are not as precise. In this discipline, the Samsung laptop also lags behind the competition. Anyone who types a lot should try the keyboard beforehand. The power button located at the top right also serves as a fingerprint sensor. The white backlighting offers three levels of intensity and can be activated automatically.

Swiping gestures made on the huge clickpad (15.1 x 10.8 cm) are very good despite it sitting a touch left of center. When it comes to typing, the ball of the left hand is almost always on the touchpad but this didn't prove to be a problem during testing. The lower part of the pad can be clicked but this comes at the cost of a relatively loud and cheap-sounding noise. 

Display - 120 Hz AMOLED

Subpixel structure
Subpixel structure

Samsung only retails the Galaxy Book4 Ultra with a 16-inch OLED touchscreen (2,880 x 1,800 pixels, 16:10). The subjective image quality impresses with vivid colors and deep blacks. The response times are extremely fast and HDR content is supported. In addition, movement is very smooth thanks to the 120 Hz refresh rate. As with all Windows devices, the HDR mode can be activated manually but color management is no longer available. Both the brightness and the color temperature can be adjusted automatically via the sensor.

The maximum SDR mode brightness sits at an average of 393 cd/m² and the black value is 0 cd/m² with this leading to a very high contrast ratio. We measured an HDR brightness of 564 cd/m² for image sections or 540 cd/m² with an almost completely white image. This means the HDR capabilities are significantly more limited compared to mini LED panels and, coupled with better macOS handling, the MacBook Pro 16 is considerably superior when it comes to the area of HDR.

In Samsung's settings app, there are various color profiles with the standard active one being "Vivid". As usual, the colors here are a little oversaturated and this makes images appear more vibrant. However, out of the box, there is also the P3 mode which mostly offers accurate colors and this is the one we used for our measurements. Using our own calibration, we were unable to further improve on this performance. The panel covers both the sRGB as well as the P3 color spaces completely and anyone who enjoys editing images will be satisfied with the similarly accurate sRGB mode.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
0.69 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.39 ms rise
↘ 0.3 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.54 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.29 ms rise
↘ 0.25 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 240 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 240 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 240 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The OLED touchscreen is basically reflective but, thanks to the implementation of Corning Gorilla Glass DX, the level thereof is lower compared to other glossy panels and, in this regard, Samsung is on par with Apple's MacBooks. In principle, you can also use the device outdoors on bright days as long as you avoid reflections from light sources. The viewing angle stability is very good but, with large deviations, you will find the typical OLED blue shimmer.

Performance - Meteor Lake replaces Raptor Lake

Samsung has replaced the old Intel Raptor Lake chips with the new Meteor Lake processors and you either get the Core Ultra 7 155H or the Core Ultra 9 185H. Regardless of the processor, you will also either get 16 or 32 GB of soldered RAM and, in terms of the GPUs, you have the choice between the GeForce RTX 4050 laptop or the faster RTX 4070 laptop.

 
 
 

Test conditions

In the Samsung settings app, there are various energy profiles but the standard selection is the Optimized mode. We also used this mode for the following benchmarks and measurements. Optionally, you can also choose from either Silent as well as High Performance. We have summarised the corresponding TDP/TGP values in the following table below.

Processor

The Core Ultra 7 155H is the successor to the well-loved Core i7-13700H and offers a total of 16 cores/22 threads (6x performance, 10x efficiency). With power limits of 65/40 watts, the processor offers decent performance even if there are hardly any differences compared to the old Raptor Lake generation. This means it isn't a worthwhile upgrade. With the Ryzen 9 Pro 7940HS, AMD has its nose marginally in front. The normal M3 Pro also finds itself on this level and enjoys an advantage when it comes to single-core tests. Under sustained load, the multi-core performance drops by around ~15 %. In battery mode, the processor is allowed to draw a maximum of 45 watts, leading to a small deficit of  7 %. Additional CPU benchmarks can be found in our technology section.

DPC latencies

In our standardized latency test (surfing the internet, 4K YouTube playback, CPU load), the review device and its current BIOS version performed very well. A driver did show a spike but the important "interrupt to process latency" value was very low.

Mass storage

Unsurprisingly, Samsung has installed one of its own SSDs (PM9A1), however, it only has a 512 GB capacity. After the first installation, the user has 403 GB at their disposal. At least the storage capacity can be easily and affordably expanded thanks to the second M.2 2280 slot. There is no cause for criticism regarding the SSD's performance and, even under longer periods of load, there are no dips in performance. Additional SSD benchmarks are listed here.
