Samsung’s Galaxy Book Flex 5G range has been revealed, with the anticipated high-end notebook range being released at the same time as Intel’s 11th generation processors, with both being quite impressive.
The new notebooks are the first in the world to offer 5G capability as well as Intel’s Evo Certification of Excellence, which ensures that the wake-up time is instant and the battery will last for a long time during extended use in practical, real-world conditions. Some of the finest Tiger Lakearchitecture are present.
Both i5 and i7 configurations will be available, with the main differences being tied to power management and pure computing power. While increased battery life could be important for some customers, the versions of the device will include a 70Wh that should encourage Samsng to opt for the more powerful versions.
All the Tiger Lake CPUs that will power Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 5G will also come with the new Iris Xe graphics chips, which promise a performance boost by up to 20% while the power drain is also lower by 20%.
Samsung underlined the fact that the two-in-one devices will be powerful during the presentation, and it seems that high-end gaming is among the objectives targeted by the company, which would be a major feat for devices which don’t rely on discrete graphics cards, a change that could be quite attractive for potential customers.
Coupled with the use of LPDDR4X RAM and NVme SSDs with a maximum capacity of up to 512GB, as well as support for MicroSD cards, it is clear that performance was the essential trait of interest for the Korean giant. Other premium features are also included, with the sound system being tuned by AKG while an S-Pen is also included.
Market release dates and price tags will be announced in the following weeks.
