Inside the laptops are 11th Gen Intel processors, 8GB to 32GB of RAM, and up to 1TB SSD. Variants with i5 and i7 processors come with integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics, but modifications with a GeForce MX450 video card (they, however, are slightly thicker and weigh more).
Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, USB-A 3.2, HDMI, 3.5 mm audio jack, and microSD reader are available from the connection interfaces in the 15.6 ″ version. The 13.3 ″ model lacks an HDMI port, but it has a slot for a nanoSIM card (4G is supported). The devices also have Wi-Fi 6E modules, speakers from AKG with Dolby Atmos support, and a fingerprint scanner in the power button.
The Galaxy Book Pro 15.6 ″ is equipped with a 68Wh battery. Comes with a 65W USB-C power adapter. The 13.3 ″ version has a 63 Wh battery. The cost of the smaller model starts at $ 1000, the larger one – from $ 1100.
Galaxy Book Pro 360
Based on the name, you can guess that this model received a hinge that allows the display to recline 360 degrees. The AMOLED screen itself has a touch-sensitive coating and supports S Pen operation. As with the regular Galaxy Book Pro, there are two versions available: 13.3 ″ and 15.6 ″.
11th Gen Intel processors power the notebooks, but discrete graphics from NVIDIA are not available.

Otherwise, the characteristics are, to a large extent, the same as the Galaxy Book Pro. However, the cost of 360 versions is slightly more expensive: from $ 1200 for the 13.3 ″ version and $1300 for the 15.6 ″ model.
