Samsung is teasing the announcement of a new Galaxy Book laptop at an event on February 27 that coincides with this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC). A small animation released alongside the invite shows a laptop unfolding itself before being joined by a collection of other Samsung products, including a smartwatch, smartphone and tablet. The event will be streamed on Samsung’s YouTube channel on February 27 at 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT.
In an accompanying blog post, Hark-sang Kim, head of Samsung Electronics’ new computer R&D team, hints at the company’s priorities for its “next-generation Galaxy Book series.” Kim says the goal is to provide a “seamless experience across devices and operating systems,” with different Galaxy devices working together. Concrete specifications for the laptop have not yet been announced, but Intel is mentioned as a partner.
We’ve already seen some cross-device functionality thanks to Samsung’s work with Microsoft on the Your Phone app, which allows users to control Android apps from their phone on their Windows PC. Samsung also says that apps like Samsung Gallery and Samsung Notes now offer a consistent look and feel across mobile and PC.
The launch comes a few weeks after Samsung announced its latest flagship smartphone line, the Galaxy S22 series, as well as a new range of Android tablets. Together it was a busy start to the year for the South Korean tech giant.
