Samsung launched its premium Galaxy Book2 series laptops in India early last month. While the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360, Galaxy Book2 Pro, and Galaxy Book 360 were made available for purchase by the brand last month itself, the final entry in the series, i.e., Galaxy Book2, finally hit the shelves on May 4th. It is one of the best laptops for those who want a device that offers impressive specs and features at a reasonable price. We’ll be going over the different aspects of the Galaxy Book2 laptop that make it a unique offering at its price.
Uncompromising performance with Intel 12th gen processors
Samsung Galaxy Book2 ships with Intel’s latest 12th gen Core i5 and Core i7 processors. The 12th Gen Intel Core mobile processors feature an all-new performance hybrid architecture. In this new architecture, there are two types of cores. The Performance cores—or ‘P-cores’— work towards maximising single-thread performance and responsiveness. On the other hand, the efficient cores (E-cores) deliver scalable, multi-threaded performance and efficient offloading of background tasks for your multi-tasking needs.
With this new architecture, the 12th gen Intel Core processors enable the Galaxy Book2 to deliver unhinged performance while also delivering exceptional battery life, making it one of the best laptops you can buy right now. Whether you are a creator, gamer, or even someone who wants to do casual multi-tasking on your laptop, you will notice the improvements brought along by these new processors in most areas.
While the laptop is not targeted at gamers, thanks to Intel Iris Xe graphics, you would also be able to play and enjoy the latest games on the Galaxy Book2, making the laptop a good choice for anyone who plays games to wind down after their workday.
Built for productivity on the go
The Galaxy Book2 comes with an attractive sleek design and measures just 15.4mm in thickness and weighs only 1.57kg. With the sleek and lightweight design, the Galaxy Book2 has been built to be carried around wherever you go. The laptop features an aluminium body, which means you get a premium and durable body which will last for a long time. While some other laptops in the market sacrifice ports to provide a sleek design, the Galaxy Book2 is built differently. You get two USB 3.2 ports, two USB Type-C ports, an HDMI port, a microSD card slot, a security slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
The Galaxy Book2 houses a long-lasting 54Wh battery that ensures the portable doesn’t run out of juice during long work sessions. To charge the battery, the laptop comes with a compact charger, which is extremely portable and is also compatible with other Galaxy devices with its USB Type-C connectivity. The Galaxy Book2 also comes with a powerful SSD drive for fast storage. It also has an additional slot you can use to expand the storage. So, you don’t need to worry about carrying external hard drives when you travel for work.
Multimedia companion like no other
Samsung Galaxy Book2 features an anti-glare 15.6-inch FHD (1,920×1080 pixels) LED display with a thin bezel design. The display panel on the laptop produces crisp and vibrant visuals. If you like binge-watching movies or web series on your laptop, you would appreciate the immersive experience offered by the display panel on this portable. Complementing the display are stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support that help you get the best possible multimedia experience on the go.
Galaxy Ecosystem – Designed to make your life much easier
Second Screen: If you are a working professional or a student, you would already know the benefits of having a secondary display. With the Second Screen feature, you can connect the Galaxy Book2 with a Samsung tablet wirelessly to duplicate or extend the display to get more work done without the hassle of looking for a separate monitor.
Quick Share: If you’ve ever experienced the issues while sharing files between your multiple devices or sharing them with your friends, Quick Share is the solution for you. This feature allows seamless wireless transfer of files between Galaxy devices. Another sharing feature – Private Share – offers a new option to encrypt files using blockchain technology. This means you are in full control of what you share and can even set an expiration date on file accessibility.

Link to Windows offers a seamless inter-device experience that lets you open what you just left-off on your phone, right on your PC. If you are looking for a feature to make your life much more convenient and easier, this is it.
Smart Switch and Single Sign-On: Samsung Galaxy Book Smart Switch feature lets you transfer your files and settings from your old device to your new laptop.
