Samsung’s extra-thin Galaxy Book Pro laptops leak ahead of UnpackedApril 15, 2021
- Samsung’s Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 have leaked.
- Both should be very thin Windows laptops with Samsung-specific features, including the S Pen on the 360.
- Both are expected to appear at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event on April 28.
There might not be much mystery left to Samsung’s April 28 Galaxy Unpacked event. Well-known leaker Evan Blass has shared what he says are images of the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360, both of which could make their debut in Samsung’s virtual presentation.
If the leak is accurate, both Windows systems will be thin-and-light portables with full-size keyboards. The Galaxy Book Pro will be a conventional laptop, while the Pro 360 you see above will unsurprisingly be a two-in-one convertible tablet with S-Pen support. They’d be sleeker alternatives (not necessarily sequels) to the Galaxy Book Flex and Ion, in other words.
The snapshots line up with photos 91mobiles spotted in SafetyKorea’s certification system.

The visuals don’t include any specs. Past leaks have suggested both Galaxy Book Pro models will offer high-end specs that include 11th-gen Intel Core processors with Xe graphics, optional GeForce MX450 graphics (on the 15-inch Pro), Thunderbolt 4, and your choice of 13- or 15-inch AMOLED displays — a likely step up from the QLED technology in the Galaxy Book Flex. You’d also get a host of Samsung-specific integrations, including DeX and SmartThings, and the pick of LTE for always-on data.
Price and availability are still unknowns for the Galaxy Book Pro lineup. We wouldn’t be surprised if both are available soon after Samsung’s event, though, and AMOLED screens could hike the prices for both. As with the Flex and Ion, these should be PC counterparts to Samsung’s flagship Galaxy phones and may carry the premium pricing to match.
