Seems like Samsung shifted in high gear to get an announcement of their 4th generation Laptop and convertible series out ahead of schedule. Rumor has it this happened to allow Samsung to claim the badge of the first AI optimized devices, or something to this effect…
As freelance illustrator I am particularly interested in the Pro 360 convertible variant of these devices, and if the news are to be believed, Samsung has finally listened and added a dedicated gpu in the shape of Intel Arc graphics.
While I´m not thrilled it´s Intel Arc, this should be considerably more powerful than Intel Iris X integrated graphics.
But what I´m really curious about is the amount of RAM - and here Samsung has been rather confusing in the past: During the initial introductory phase of the 2nd and 3rd generation devices, it was claimed the Pro 360 variant will be equipped with 32GB Ram as maxed out configuration.
Turns out, the Galaxy Book Pro 360 was never available with more than 16GB RAM so far.
Now, once again, the initial announcements for the 4th generation claim it will have up to 32GB RAM. So, once again I am led to believe this time, too, it won´t be offered with more than 16GB of RAM - were it not for one interesting facet: The Samsung Galaxy Book 4 Ultra is claimed to have up to 64GB RAM this time.
This could, once again, be chalked off to hyperbole, but 64GB RAM makes a lot of sense as it is supposed to be Samsung´s mobile powerhouse, directly competing with Apple MacBook Pro devices. Plus the initial announcements of the 3rd generation Galaxy Book Ultra never mentioned 64GB RAM, they stuck with 32GB, and 32GB were delivered.
So here I am wondering if maybe this time Samsung will really give the Pro 360 variant the desired 32GB RAM in a maxed out configuration, because this number will not potentially rival the Galaxy Book Ultra in it´s maxed out configuration.
