The Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 may be the top highlights of the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event, but the company had a surprise in store for gamers too. In addition to the two flagship devices of the Samsung product line in 2021, the Galaxy Book Odyssey will be launched.
In contrast to the flagship Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360, the Galaxy Book Odyssey has a brand new and powerful Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti Max Q GPU under the hood – with the additional option also for the RTX 3050 Max-Q. It also offers a maximum capacity of up to 32 GB of RAM (user upgradeable) and 2 TB of expandable and removable solid-state drive storage. The entire package is powered by Intel's Core i7 and Core i5 H series Tiger Lake processors.
Other highlights of the device are the numerous connections, including HDMI, USB Type C and conventional USB A 3.2 connections. Samsung says it is one of the thinnest, most powerful gaming laptops the company has ever made, and has also been advised that it is powerful enough to play Xbox Game Pass games in "high quality" on PC .
Of course, other games such as Cyberpunk 2077 or Microsoft Flight Simulator shouldn't be a problem with an Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti Max Q GPU. Samsung says it is "a perfect match for gamers about to begin their wildest adventures" and mentions that the device is designed for "everyday use to high-performance gaming and B2B use".
The laptop has a size of 15.6 inches in a mystical black color and a unique silver Samsung Odyssey logo on the lid. There is also an improved cooling system on board the laptop. For charging, Samsung bundles a 135-watt USB Type-C charger instead of the charger you find on typical gaming laptops.
Galaxy Book Odyssey complements the Galaxy Book, the Galaxy Book Pro and the Galaxy Book Pro 360 in the Samsung 2021 product line. The Galaxy Book is intended to be more of a laptop for education markets and be "accessible to everyone" with the same processing power and performance as the other two flagship devices.
According to Samsung, the Galaxy Book Odyssey will be available later this summer, August, starting at $ 1,400. That's a few months after the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360, which will be available next month in May.
