The Samsung Galaxy Book Odyssey is the first laptop with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Max-Q and RTX 3050 Ti Max-Q GPUs
Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Book Odyssey, another 15.6-inch laptop to go with the Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 models that it has also revealed today. However, the Galaxy Book Odyssey has some NVIDIA hardware up its sleeve, namely the GeForce RTX 3050 Max-Q and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Max-Q. Samsung is light on the details about these GPUs, but we do know that they will have 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. You can read more about the RTX 3050 series here.
Similarly, Samsung states that it will sell the Galaxy Book Odyssey with Core i5 and Core i7 Tiger Lake processors, albeit without confirming which processors the laptop will feature. The company has also equipped the laptop with an 83 Wh battery that is rechargeable via a 135 W USB Type-C charger.
According to the press material, the Galaxy Book Odyssey will come with 8 GB, 16 GB or 32 GB of LPDDR4x SO-DIMM RAM and up to 1 TB of NVMe storage. Additionally, the device has five USB ports, an HDMI, a microSD card slot and an RJ45 Ethernet connection. However, Samsung makes no mention of the laptop supporting Thunderbolt 4 across either of its two Type-C ports.
The Galaxy Book Odyssey will only be available in Mystic Black and weighs 1.85 kg. The 356.6 x 229.1 x 17.7 mm device also has a fingerprint scanner integrated within its power button, which is good to see. Unfortunately, Samsung has not announced when or where it will start selling the Galaxy Book Odyssey,
nor for how much.
According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Book Odyssey will start at US$1,399. Full pricing remains unknown, but the Galaxy Book Odyssey's starting price makes it the most expensive laptop that Samsung has announced today.
