Samsung has a couple of new laptops under development – Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 – which include OLED screens and will be compatible with the company’s S Pen, SamMobile reports. It is said that the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is also available with 5G connectivity. Laptops were first revealed in a Bluetooth certification archive that appeared last month.

These would not be the first of Samsung’s laptops to support the S Pen (last year’s Galaxy Book Flex 5G, the company’s first 5G laptop, for example, had a built-in one), but it comes after the company announced a new pair of S Pen pens with the Galaxy S21 Ultra. It is a standard S-pen that is sold separately from the phone, and later this year it will be joined by the S Pen Pro, an upgraded version that provides support for Bluetooth and air movement. Earlier this year, Samsung said it plans to bring S Pen support to “more device categories.”
In addition to the monitors and S Pen support, the new Windows laptops are rumored to be powered by Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. The Galaxy Pro 360 is believed to be a convertible 2-in-1 laptop, with a 360 hinge that allows the screen to be turned around and used as a tablet.
If the reports on the upcoming devices are accurate, they will be included in a number of other laptops recently announced by Samsung. These include the Galaxy Chromebook 2, an Intel-powered Chromebook with a QLED display (essentially an LCD display using Samsung’s quantum dot technology) and stylus support, announced earlier this year.
