Samsung launched the Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex in late October last year. These two laptops are designed to replace the pair of Notebook 9 and Notebook 9 Pen that the company introduced earlier.
Recently, just before CES 2020, the Korean manufacturer has just launched a new laptop model called Galaxy Book Flex Alpha. Although still equipped with many advanced features, but this device is priced much cheaper than the previous generation.
Like the expensive Galaxy Book Flex, the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha features a 2-in-1 design with an aluminum frame, using a 13.3-inch QLED display with Full HD resolution and can be rotated 360 degrees. In addition, it also has a more modern design with sharper edges, as well as the bezel around the screen is made thinner than the first generation.
In order to get a cheaper price, Samsung had to cut some features on the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha, including the Qi wireless charging pad built into the touchpad. In addition, although this laptop still supports the S-Pen, users will have to purchase the S-Pen separately because the manufacturer does not include it and it does not have a pen slot like the previous version.
In terms of specifications, Galaxy Book Flex Alpha brings hardware power from Intel’s 10th generation processor (with no specific name), 8GB or 12GB RAM and 256GB or 512GB SSD memory. Samsung also promises that its latest laptop can provide battery life up to 17.5 hours after a full charge, supporting fast charging via USB-C.
At the moment, Samsung has not announced the specific price and availability of Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex (both are expected to be sold in early 2020). However, the company says the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha will be in the lower segment of the two products, with prices starting from $ 829.99 (about 19.2 million VND) and launched later in the first half of 2020.
