The laptops come in a body made out of aluminum and magnesium alloy, which provides exceptional durability while reducing weight dramatically. There are two Mystic colors to choose from: either Mystic Blue or Mystic Silver. Branding-wise, the Samsung logo is only found on the back of the lid, placed horizontally on the left side. As we said before, the weight and height come in at the head-turning 0.87 kg and 11.7mm, for the 13.3-inch model. The bigger Galaxy Book Pro (15) is a bit heavier, stopping the scales at 1.39 kg and being 2 mm taller.
Both laptops have a Full HD OLED screen, which differs in their size, with the (13) getting a 13.3-inch display, while the bigger laptop bumps that up to 15.6 inches. OLED technology provides exceptional colors and true blacks, which are just the powered-off pixels. This means that if you choose to go with darker themes and black wallpapers for your software, you will actually be increasing your battery life since the pixels wouldn’t need power.
