The Windows based machines are available in 8GB or 16GB of RAM options, 512GB maximum internal storage on the Pro and up to 1TB on the Pro 360. They are powered by a Core i5 or i7 11th-gen Intel processor.
The mobile laptops will be available in LTE and 5G connectivity options depending on various markets. Samsung says the battery for both machines are “built to keep you going through the day.” The Galaxy Book Pro series ship with a USB-C adapter and support 65W fast charge.
