Samsung launches new Galaxy Book4

On the heels of last year's Book3, Samsung just introduced us to the successor for 2024 - the Book4; which will come in an Ultra (16"), Pro (a 14" or 16"), and Pro 360 (16") versions.

Looking forward to seeing this year's variant - and how it has that right blend of Samsung OneUI and Windows (for those of you who still like to use Windows).

Introducing Galaxy Book4 Series: The Most Intelligent and Powerful Galaxy Book Yet

The Galaxy Book4 Series combines ultra-portable design, elevated performance, and boundless connectivity to reshape the PC experience

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Dec. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Samsung Electronics Canada Inc. today announced the release of its most intelligent PC lineup yet: the Samsung Galaxy Book4 Ultra, Galaxy Book4 Pro 360 and Galaxy Book4 Pro. The latest Galaxy Book4 Series comes with a new intelligent processor, a more vivid and interactive display1, and is secured by Knox — beginning a new era of Samsung AI PCs that can offer enhanced productivity.1 These AI enhancements also elevate the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem and form part of the company’s vision of AI innovation — for both today and tomorrow.

“Samsung is committed to empowering people to experience new possibilities that enhance their everyday lives. This new paradigm can be achieved through our expansive Galaxy ecosystem and open collaboration with other industry leaders,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “The Galaxy Book4 Series plays a key role in bringing seamless connectivity to our ecosystem that will broaden how people interact with their PC, phone, tablet and other devices for truly intelligent and connected experiences.”

Intelligent Productivity Leveled up by Secure Performance

The Galaxy Book4 Series is equipped with an intelligent processor for powerful performance. The latest Series comes with a new Intel® Core Ultra 9 processor that combines a faster CPU, a higher-performance GPU and a newly added NPU into a single package2. Coupled with Intel’s industry-first AI PC Acceleration program — which includes more than 100 AI applications from independent software vendors, the new processor enables exciting new AI capabilities for users. The NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU3 takes the user experience to the next level. Creativity is supercharged with fast, generative AI-based creation tools backed by NVIDIA Studio technology that allow you to create stunning images with simple text in seconds with RTX-optimized Stable Diffusion. Galaxy Book4 Ultra users can also immerse themselves in games with NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology that creates higher quality images for over 500 ray-traced popular games and applications.

The Galaxy Book4 Ultra also lowers heat and fan noise with a new cooling system, including an 11 percent wider vapor chamber and a dual fan with an uneven blade spacing design4. You can use your device for a longer time on a single charge thanks to increased power efficiency5. Galaxy Book4 Ultra users can also quickly top up an additional 55 percent battery life in just 30 minutes6 using the 140W adaptor4 that is 1.4 times larger than its predecessor.

Data privacy and security have become increasingly important, that’s why Samsung is building on its legacy of security with Samsung Knox and enhanced security measures at the chipset level for the Galaxy Book Series for the first time. All three models have a new discrete Samsung Knox security chip that secures critical system data separately, adding to existing multi-layered security efforts with Intel and Microsoft.

Stunning Display and Next-level Connectivity to Perform Anytime, Anywhere

The Galaxy Book4 Series upgraded display gives you a clear view, so you can stay productive while on the go. The Series boasts an incredible viewing experience with a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that offers clear contrast and vivid colour. Vision Booster uses an Intelligent Outdoor Algorithm to automatically enhance visibility and colour reproduction in bright conditions, while anti-reflective technology7 reduces distracting reflections. With a touchscreen now added to all three models, the Galaxy Book4 Series not only delivers a clear viewing experience but is also more interactive — offering a familiar touch-based user interface, similar to the experience on your smartphone or tablet.

Advanced audio is just as important for a well-rounded PC experience with high octaves and rich bass delivered by AKG Quad speakers with Dolby Atmos® for clear and crisp sound. Dual microphones with bi-directional AI noise canceling capture your voice clearly during video calls, even in noisy outdoor environments. When paired with Galaxy Buds2 Pro, LE Audio8 — an advanced Bluetooth audio standard — enables realistic sounds with reduced latency to make experiences such as gaming more immersive. Auto Switch9 allows you to seamlessly connect your Galaxy Buds to multiple devices — from your smartphone, tablet and watch to your TV and now PC — so you can enjoy listening to your devices without manual input. A large touchpad and a wide range of ports — including a new HDMI 2.1 port — are also designed to enhance the usability of the Galaxy Book4 Series. All these features are packed in a slim and light design that opens powerful possibilities on the go.

Together with Galaxy smartphones and tablets, Galaxy Book4 Series users can benefit from even more enhanced productivity and creativity features. Designed to help everyone be a creator, Samsung Studio10, a new video creation tool available across Samsung Galaxy devices, allows you to continue editing videos made on your phone or tablet in more detail on your PC. Photo Remaster, now available on Samsung Gallery for PC, lets you quickly correct photos and automatically erase unwanted shadows and reflections with AI-enabled optimization. Second Screen11 allows you to use your tablet as a monitor for your Galaxy Book4 and elevate your productivity with a variety of display modes such as Duplicate, Extension and now Rotation.

Availability12

The Samsung Galaxy Book4 Series will be progressively made available in select markets including Canada in 2024. The Series comes in a refined and minimal finish with a wider variety of recycled materials, including plastics, glass, and aluminum13.
