The specifications of the Galaxy Book 4 series got leaked earlier last month and it seems like its launch isn’t far away either. Reports suggest that the Galaxy Book 4 series will launch as soon as this month, shortly after the launch of Intel’s Meteor Lake processors on December 14th.
The report comes from a Korean publication called Yonhap News, which says that the Galaxy Book 4 series will launch of December 15, 2023, which is one day after Intel’s new processors debut. One would expect the laptops to launch in February, considering the Book 3 series debuted around the same time earlier this year but that won’t be the case as Samsung is reportedly pushing up the launch date.
Samsung recently did the same with its Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, which usually debut in August of every year but launched in July this time. The reason behind Samsung postponing the launch of the Galaxy Book 4 series is cited to be the brand’s push in the AI segment. It reportedly wants to have the first AI laptop out in the world.
Multiple leaks regarding Galaxy S24 series claim that Samsung wants to make it the AI phone, and the brand’s efforts in AI could first be showcased with its laptops. The Galaxy AI experience could be a game-changer for the brand, both for its flagship smartphones and top-end Galaxy Book laptops.
