Samsung hosted the Unpacked event to unveil updated Galaxy Book notebooks. In addition to the super-thin and light Galaxy Book Pro, the manufacturer announced a completely new model called the Galaxy Book Odyssey, and to date it is the most powerful laptop of the South Korean giant.
Its peculiarity lies in the fact that for the first time for this class of devices, Intel Tiger Lake-H processors are used, which will debut only on May 11, as well as the RTX 3050 Ti (or RTX 3050) graphics accelerator.

An 83 Wh battery is responsible for autonomy, but the manufacturer did not provide information on the battery life. An advanced cooling system is also installed inside.
In terms of connectivity, there are two USB-C ports (one is used to connect a charger), three USB-A 3.2, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet and microSD. The laptop supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
