Samsung has officially taken the wraps off its next-generation flagship laptop lineup Galaxy Book 4 series. A trio of new premium notebooks aim to be Samsung’s best blend of performance, portability and security yet in the Windows ecosystem, Book 4 Ultra may powered by new Intel Core Ultra 9 185H processor.
Arriving as successors to Galaxy Book 3 series, all Galaxy Book 4 models boast the debut of touchscreen displays across the range. Configurations span from the top-end 16-inch Galaxy Book 4 Ultra, convertible 13.3-inch Galaxy Book 4 Pro 360, and traditional 13.3-inch Galaxy Book 4 Pro clamshell.
Living up to their flagship billing, every Galaxy Book 4 model flaunts an upgraded high-resolution AMOLED touch display rocking a blistering 120Hz refresh rate. The standout Galaxy Book 4 Ultra tops out at a crisp 3K (2880 x 1800) resolution plus 3,000:1 contrast ratio. Vibrant DCI-P3 color gamut coverage also impresses at 120% – a boon for creative pros.
On design, reduced screen glare takes center stage for the new range. All Galaxy Book 4 variants incorporate anti-reflective touch panels and reduced blue light emissions to combat fatigue. While not the flashiest change on paper, reduced glare delivers major quality of life improvements for daily use.
But one particularly intriguing Galaxy Book 4 upgrade comes under the hood, as Samsung introduces a new physically separated Knox security chipset across all models. The custom Samsung solution builds encryption, identity protection and real-time threat monitoring into the hardware level for heightened defense against invasive attacks.
With robust end-to-end security becoming increasingly pivotal for personal and business devices alike, Samsung looks to leapfrog competitors with this layered safety approach. Combined with built-in fingerprint readers and FHD webcams with Windows Hello face sign-in, the Galaxy Book 4 lineup appears primed for privacy-minded professionals.
The Galaxy Book 4 series availability starts in early 2024, headlined by the Galaxy Book 4 Ultra’s combination of performance, vibrant 16-inch 3K touch display and hardcore security foundations. Pricing remains unannounced, but expect premium markups suiting Samsung’s new flagship stature in the Windows laptop arena.
