Not just the Galaxy S23: Samsung has unveiled the flagship Galaxy Book3 Ultra, Book3 Pro and Book3 Pro 360 notebooks
Samsung held a big presentation on the first day of February where it unveiled the flagship Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphones. But they weren't the only debutants - the South Korean manufacturer also showed off several top-of-the-line Galaxy Book3 notebooks.
Here's What We've Seen
So, there's quite a choice: the 14-inch and 16-inch Galaxy Book3 Pro, the 16-inch Pro 360 and the flagship Book3 Ultra. They have a lot in common, although the most powerful Galaxy Book3 Ultra stands out. It comes in one size, with a 16-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, 2880×1800 pixel resolution, an adaptive frequency of 48Hz to 120Hz and brightness up to 500 nits for HDR content. That said, the laptop is quite thin at 16.5mm and weighs in at 1.79kg.
The flagship has several configurations with Intel Core i7-13700H or Core i9-13900H processors, up to 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD. There's discrete graphics too - either RTX 4050 or RTX 4070. The 76Wh battery supports a 100W charger.
The Galaxy Book3 Pro and Galaxy Book3 Pro 360 have the same type of screens with the same specs. Except they come with 13th generation Intel Core i5-1340P or Core i7-1360P processors, 8/12/16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB, 512GB or 1TB storage.
The 14-inch Galaxy Book3 Pro has a 63Wh battery while the 16-inch Galaxy Book3 Pro and Book3 Pro 360 have the same 76Wh as the Galaxy Book3 Ultra. They support 65W of charging with Power Delivery. And the Galaxy Book3 Pro 360 has an S Pen stylus as well, which is included in the package.
All four models also share common multimedia features: two 5W bass speakers, two 2W tweeters, AKG and Dolby Atmos certification, dual studio-quality microphones and a 1080p webcam.

The Galaxy Book3 Ultra will go on sale from 22 February with prices starting at $2400. The Galaxy Book3 Pro is priced from $1450 and the Book3 Pro 360 from $1900. They will be available from 17 February.
