Samsung is preparing to release Galaxy Book 4 series laptops, which will be equipped with Raptor Lake Refresh or Meteor Lake processors, as well as Intel Arc or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series discrete graphics accelerators. This is reported by the WindowsReport portal, which has published the full characteristics of future new products.
We would like to remind you that as part of the 14th generation of Core chips, Intel will release mobile processors of the Core Ultra series (Meteor Lake) and Core 100 (Raptor Lake Refresh). Thanks to the latest leak, it has been revealed that Samsung will be using both series of processors in its Galaxy Book 4 laptops. These lightweight (1.26 to 1.86 kg) laptops will be equipped with, among other things, energy-efficient Core-U chips.
The Galaxy Book 4 laptop series will include five models: the traditional 15.6-inch Galaxy Book 4 and Galaxy Book 4 360, the 16-inch Galaxy Book 4 Pro 360 and Galaxy Book 4 Ultra, and the 14-inch Galaxy Book 4 Pro. With the exception of the base model Galaxy Book 4, all models get AMOLED touchscreens. The Galaxy Book 4 with IPS display and the Galaxy Book 4 360 with AMOLED display support Full HD resolution. The displays of other models support a resolution of 2880 × 1800 pixels. Models called “360” will be hybrid models – their displays can be opened 360 degrees, transforming the laptop into a tablet.
The Galaxy Book 4 and Galaxy Book 4 360 will feature Intel Core 5 120U (Raptor Lake Refresh) processors with frequencies of up to 5.0 GHz and 12 MB Smart Cache. Unfortunately, the number of cores in the expected chips is still unknown. The remaining laptop models in this series receive Meteor Lake chips. The Galaxy Book 4 Pro 360 and Galaxy Book 4 Pro models are equipped with Core Ultra 7 155U processors with a frequency of up to 4.8 GHz and 24 MB Smart Cache memory. The flagship model Galaxy Book 4 Ultra receives a Core Ultra 9 185H with a frequency of up to 5.1 GHz and 24 MB L3 cache. The older model also offers a choice of Intel Arc and GeForce RTX 4070 discrete graphics cards with 8GB of GDDR6 memory.
The new product will receive solid-state drives with capacities ranging from 256GB to 1TB. Some models will be equipped with two M.2 slots for installing a second SSD. The base model of the Galaxy Book 4 gets 8GB of power-efficient LPDDR4X RAM, while the rest have faster LPDDR5 and LPDDR5X storage ranging from 8 to 32GB. Most Galaxy Book 4 series laptops support Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, as well as two Thunderbolt 4 (Type-C) interfaces. The full characteristics of future new products can be found in the table below.
The Samsung Galaxy Book 4 series laptops are expected to go on sale soon after the launch of the Meteor Lake processors, which is scheduled for December 14.
