Samsung launched a number of new premium laptops today, but the people on a budget have not been forgotten. In addition to the standard Galaxy Book, the updated Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha will also be available in stores shortly.
The Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha, which is available for a reasonable price of $ 850, has a lot going for it. While the exterior and vibrant QLED screen haven't changed much from last year's model, what's inside this updated 2-in-1 screen matters. It now has options for Intel's latest 11th generation Tiger Lake processors that take advantage of Iris Xe graphics.
Color options include Royal Silver, Mystic Black, or Royal Blue. RAM options range from 8 GB for the Core i5 model and up to 12 GB for the Core i7 model and storage areas of up to 256 GB and 512 GB, respectively.
This combination of processor, RAM and storage makes it a good alternative to the Galaxy Book Pro 360. This premium model has the same Intel chips under the hood, but offers the additional support of an S Pen and a Super AMOLED touch-sensitive screen.
If you prefer a more traditional budget laptop, Samsung also offers the Galaxy Book. The Galaxy Book starts at $ 800 and will be released in the second half of this year. It's slightly cheaper than the Galaxy Book Pro, which starts at $ 1,000, and has a traditional LCD display instead of the more vibrant AMOLED panel.
Processing options include either Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 CPUs. However, a Samsung specification page also mentions the slower Celeron and Pentium Gold CPUs. If necessary, you can also add Nvidia's GeForce MX450 graphics to the 15-inch models. This should add a little more graphics to the graphic editing of photos and videos.
All of these products were announced at the latest Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event and should launch in May, late summer, and early fall. We've rounded up the news and highlighted all of the new products you need to know, including the new Galaxy Book Odyssey.
