The South Korean company has already held two Galaxy Unpacked events this year to announce the Galaxy S21 series and Galaxy A-series smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event to be held on April 28th: what to expect?

The upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event will be livestreamed across Samsung’s YouTube channel and its newsroom website. Speculations are rife that the company may announce the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 notebooks. A few weeks back, Blass had shared the leaked renders of these devices to showcase their design. In addition, the live images of these devices were recently spotted at the SafetyKorea certification platform.

Past reports have revealed that the Galaxy Book Pro will have a 13.3-inch OLED display, whereas the Galaxy Book Pro 360 will have a 15.6-inch OLED touchscreen display. Both devices are expected to arrive with S Pen stylus support. These devices are expected to run on Windows 10 OS. Hence, they are not the rumored Chromebook from the brand.

The Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 are rumoured to be powered by the Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. While the former is expected to arrive in Wi-Fi and LTE editions, the latter may come in Wi-Fi and 5G versions. The Pro model may arrive with a regular form factor of a laptop, but the 360 variant is likely to feature a 360-degree hinge that will make it possible to use it as a 2-in-1 convertible device.

The Galaxy Book Pro is expected to succeed the Galaxy Book Ion lineup, whereas the Galaxy Book Pro 360 may succeed the Galaxy Book Flex series. Both devices are expected to arrive in Blue and Silver colours.

The South Korean company is also rumoured to announce the Galaxy Book Go budget-friendly notebook two versions. The Snapdragon 7c chip version may offer users with 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS storage, whereas another variant may feature the new edition Snapdragon 8cx hip, 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 256G of UFS storage. It is expected to feature a 14-inch FHD+ display.
