Rumored Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 2 ​may launch at MWC

Recent leaks have surfaced to reveal that Samsung might reveal a convertible laptop that will likely be called the Galaxy Book Pro 2 360 during Mobile World Congress (MWC) next week.

Popular leaker @OnLeaks and the publication GizNext have collaborated to share factory schematics renders of a device that was discovered under the code name ‘mars 2.” As the original Galaxy Book Pro 360 was code-named ‘mars,’ the sources expect that the upcoming device will be a successor to it. However, the Galaxy Book Pro 2 360 name has yet to be confirmed.

According to the available specs and renders, the device is expected to be a convertible laptop with a 360-degree hinge. It will likely have a 15.6-inch display, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, three USB-C ports, a 3.5 mm audio jack, and a MicroSD card slot.

The Galaxy Book Pro 360 sequel appears to share a lot in common with the original.

Samsung has spoken about plans to use new Intel Alder Lake processors in upcoming Galaxy Book laptops, as well as One UI Book 4 customized software based on Windows 11 for new products. These features might also be possibilities for the Galaxy Book Pro 2 360, as the brand said it has plans to make announcements pertaining to these features during MWC.

Samsung confirmed last week that its Galaxy MWC event will take place at 10 a.m. PT on February 27 as a virtual livestream on YouTube.

While Samsung has not given any official word on what it plans to announce at the event, the theme appears to be work and education. There also seems to be an Easter egg in the event invite, where the laptop does a flip before other devices and accessories appear.

Mobile World Congress takes place from February 28 to March 3 in Barcelona, Spain.

Apple announces new MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips

Apple has unveiled new versions of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, ending months of speculation surrounding the devices. New features include the latest M2 Pro and M2 Max chips -- but not much else.

Almost everything else remains the same as what we saw in the M1 Pro and M1 Max versions of the MacBook Pro: the same flat-edged design, the same mini-LED display, and the same port arrangement. That’s not particularly surprising, as the M1 versions of these laptops themselves featured a major design overhaul. Another big change so soon was not really in the cards.

Apple’s next 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are already overdue, having been absent from the company’s fall 2022 release schedule. Now, a new report suggests they could be “delayed once again” in a frustrating blow to expectant Mac users.

The claim comes from online news outlet DigiTimes (via AppleInsider), which has a mixed record for the accuracy of its Apple leaks. If true, it will be disappointing news for anyone who has been holding out for the new laptops, whose absence from Apple’s late 2022 product roster marked the first time in 22 years the company had not released new Macs in the fourth quarter of a calendar year.

According to these scores, we might see a decent performance boost in the future MacBook Pros that will likely come with the M2 Max chip. Of course, things can still improve.
