Earlier in 2019, Samsung unveiled two new laptops Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion replacing the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 Models.
Just before the CES 2020, the company has unveiled the Galaxy Book Flex α (pronounced “Alpha”) designed specifically to offer high-end features of the Galaxy Book to a cheaper laptop.
The new Galaxy Book Flex Alpha features a 13.3-inch 1080p rotating QLED display with the 2-in-1 aluminum design, the display offers thin bezels with sharper corners than previous variants. The new laptop is only 13.9mm thick and weighs only 1.19 kg.
Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha features the latest 10th-generation Intel Core processors (specific series is not announced by the company) it will be available in 8GB or 12GB DDR4 RAM options and 256GB/512GB and up to 1TB SSD storage. The company also says that the new device will offer up to 17.5 hours of battery (54Wh) life in a single charge that uses USB-C to charge the battery faster.
At a lower price point, the company has removed the Qi wireless charging pad available in the trackpad in the premium variant and also the S Pen that is available on the laptop. But the company will provide an Active Pen with the device that will be sold separately.
