Both news come with hardware updates, including 13th generation Intel Core family processors, support for WiFi 6E networks, HDMI, USB-C Thuderbolt and USB-A connections, and an improved audio system with four speakers and doubled microphones. The machines run Windows 11 from the factory with visual modifications of the Samsung OneUI Book, which changes icons to provide a closer experience between the brand’s various devices, including tablets and smartphones.
The posts also echo the experience of integration with the Korean ecosystem, including, incidentally, the possibility to use the latest tablets from the Tab S family as a second wireless display for your laptop, and even control everything using the laptop’s trackpad and keyboard. Sharing features such as Quick Share and Private Share, easy pairing with Galaxy Buds series headphones, and other functions provided by the manufacturer’s product ecosystem are described and accessible in the Galaxy Book Experience app, which continues to come standard on machines.
