At MWC 2022, Samsung is showing new lightweight laptops with upgraded webcams and even bigger battery life claims.

At MWC 2022, Samsung announced The Galaxy Book 2 Pro and Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360, sequels to its first high-end Galaxy Book Pro. They look pretty similar too. They have the same slim and light design.

Both families of laptops come with either 13.3-inch or 15.6-inch displays, but the more important similarities are the improvements Samsung’s made for this year’s models.

Both of Samsung’s new laptops feature wide-angle 1080p webcams (up from 720p) with auto-framing (thanks to the new 87-degree field of view), a big plus for video calls.

21 hrs

The max battery life Samsung says to expect from the Galaxy Book 2 Pro / Pro 360.

Take Samsung’s estimate with a grain of salt — it’s based on just using the laptop for video playback. But a full day of work isn’t unreasonable to expect from either a 63Wh (13.3-inch) or 68Wh (15.6-inch) battery.
