Specs leaked online for the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Go laptops. The leaks come courtesy of Twitter user "WalkingCat" and include quite a few details. While they've proven to be a reliable source of leaks in the past, it's always important to take leaks with a grain of salt.
Based on the leaks, it appears that the Galaxy Book Pro is either a sequel to the Galaxy Book Ion or is at least a natural comparison to the Ion. The leak shows a comparison graphic placing the laptops head-to-head. The Galaxy Book Pro has an 11th Gen Intel Core processer, Intel Iris Xe graphics, and an NVIDIA MX450 GPU. It has an FHD AMOLED display and Thunderbolt 4. It also has an option for LTE.
The Galaxy Book Pro also seems to have many features for connecting to other devices, including 2nd Screen Easy Pairing, Samsung DeX, and Link to Windows.

The Galaxy Book Go is a Windows 10 on ARM device. The leaked graphic for the Galaxy Book Go says that it runs on a 8CX (Gen .X) processor. That could be a placeholder name for a new processor, but it's not clear at this point. The graphic compares to 8CX Gen.X processor to an Intel Core i5 and the 8CX Gen.1.

Based on the leaks, the two new laptops appear to be thin devices that build off of their predecessors. We'll have to wait to see when Samsung officially announces the devices.
