Nokia PureBook Pro Is Coming To The Market In Q2 2022

A number of manufacturers have begun to announce new products based on the 12th Gen Intel Core P-Series and U-Series processors following the official announcement by the chipmaker. Interesting enough, among the new products includes the Nokia PureBook Pro.

Some may be surprised to see a laptop from Nokia given how the brand is seen more like a mobile phone brand but rest assured, this is not the first time that a Nokia-branded laptop has been launched into the market. Similar to the PureBook X14 that was announced in late-2020, the PureBook Pro was conceived through Nokia Corp’s licensing program.

Specifically, the new laptop is made by OFF Global which is based in Lyon, France. The company said that it has obtained the rights to develop, manufacture, and sell Nokia-branded laptops for the international market with the exception of India.

Back to the PureBook Pro itself, the Windows 11 laptop will be made available with 15.6 and 17.3-inch screens although both of them will still feature Full HD IPS display panel. Additionally, both variants will also be powered by the same Intel Core i13-1220P processors and have the same 8GB RAM as well as 512GB solid state drive.

While the PureBook Pro’s body is predominantly made out of plastic, its lid is covered by aluminium. With a thickness of 19.05mm, the PureBook Pro 15.6 weights around 1.7kg while the 17.3-inch variant has a slightly thicker physique at 19.6mm and is also heavier at 2.5kg.

That being said, the PureBook Pro 17.3 offers a larger 63Wh battery as opposed to the 57Wh battery that was equipped into the 15.6-inch model. Furthermore, the 17.3-inch variant is also wide enough to include a numeric pad on its keyboard.

In terms of starting price, the PureBook Pro 15.6 and 17.3 have been listed at EUR699 (~RM3,300) and EUR799 (~RM3,773), respectively. Even though OFF Global has the rights to release the new PureBook Pro all over the world, the French company will be rolling it out in a phased manner.

Unfortunately, Malaysia is not part of the Phase 1 countries though. So, we don’t think we will see the Nokia-branded laptop in our market anytime soon.
