Samsung recently unveiled its Galaxy Book 3 series, which comprises three models. For productivity and creativity, these laptops come with the newest 13th-Gen Intel processors, Nvidia graphics, an AMOLED panel, and more. The highest-end model is the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra, followed by the Pro iteration and then the 2-in-1 Pro 360. Let’s check out the key specs of these latest Samsung Galaxy Books.
Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Series has been Launched
Galaxy Book 3 Ultra Laptop
Samsung has upped the game with its new Galaxy Book 3 Ultra, a high-end laptop with a full aluminum frame and a 16-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with brilliant 3K resolution (2880 x 1800). Its 16:10 aspect ratio and adaptive 120Hz refresh rate combine to deliver an extraordinary viewing experience. Meanwhile, 400 nits of max brightness (500 nits in HDR) ensure a bright and vibrant picture. On top of that, it also comes fitted with minimal bezels all around, wherein the top one houses a Full HD webcam and dual-mic array.
A 13th-generation Intel Core i9 H-series processor and an Nvidia graphics card power the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra. There are two options for laptop GPUs: GeForce RTX 4070 or GeForce RTX 4050. Samsung has also included a slot for expansion, so you can easily upgrade the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra storage. It comes with 32GB of DDR5 RAM and up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. Furthermore, a 76Wh battery and a 100W Type-C charger are onboard.
It is only available in Graphite color, so you don’t have as many options as Apple MacBooks with the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra. Additionally, a fingerprint scanner is built into the power button, a backlit keyboard, and a Quad Speaker system with Dolby Atmos support from AKG. As for connectivity, you will also find 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports, 1 USB Type-A port, HDMI 1.4, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The Samsung Galaxy Book 3 laptop comes pre-installed with Windows 11 and hosts several exclusive features. Multi Control allows users to manage their PC, Galaxy Tab, and phone from the same keyboard and trackpad. The Phone Link app’s Recent Websites feature allows you to switch between your phone or PC web sessions without missing a beat. Plus, this system makes it simple to drag and drop files between Samsung devices, turn your tablet into an additional display, and swiftly transfer high-quality Expert RAW images.

The Galaxy Book 3 Pro and the Galaxy Book 360 Laptops
The Galaxy Book 3 Pro and Pro 360 sport an all-aluminum chassis. The former is also available in a 14-inch model similar to recent MacBooks. Both models feature Dynamic AMOLED displays with 3K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. At the same time, the Pro 360 boasts touchscreen support and comes bundled with an S Pen.
However, the Galaxy Book 3 Pro and Pro 360 use low-power P-series chips rather than the H-series chips on the Ultra, which the latest 13th-Gen Intel Core processor powers. The system comes with Intel Iris Xe graphics, 32GB of DDR5 RAM, and up to 1TB of PCIe SSD, instead of a dedicated Nvidia GPU.
In addition to the 65W adapter, these models come in two color variants: graphite and beige.
Price and Availability Details
The Galaxy Book 3 Pro starts at $1,249. In contrast, the Galaxy Book 3 Pro 360 and Galaxy Book 3 Ultra with RTX graphics start at $1,399 and $2,399, respectively. The Galaxy Book 3 Pro and Pro 360 will be available on February 17 (in select markets) alongside the new S23 models, while the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra will be available from February 22.
There is no information on when the Galaxy Book 3 series will be available in the Indian market. But, like last year’s Galaxy Book 2 lineup, these laptops are expected to make their way to the country soon. Stay tuned for more information.
