Just before the scheduled CES 2020 event, where Samsung is expected to show off a handful of devices, the company has unveiled the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha laptop.
Galaxy Book Flex Alpha comes with some high end features that we have seen in the Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex devices launched last year. Samsung has made this device more affordable.
Samsung, in a press release, stated that the new laptop combines “the productivity and premium experience of a laptop with the mobility and flexibility of a smartphone”.
As the name suggests, Galaxy Book Flex Alpha comes with a 2 in 1 aluminum design. It sports a rotating 13.3 inches 1080 pixel QLED display with a peak brightness of 600 nits. It is powered by a 10th generation Intel core processor. However, it is still unknown whether the 10th generation processor will be an Ice Lake or a Comet Lake chip.
The laptop will come with a DDR4 RAM option of 8 GB and 12 GB and internal storage options of 256 GB and 512 GB. Further, it will support up to 1TB of SSD (NVMe) storage.
Other specifications include a fingerprint scanner, a backlit keyboard, a 54 Wh battery, a USB Type C port, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and a MicroSD slot.
It should be noted why Samsung could price this device affordably than the last year’s Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex devices even though most specifications are comparable. Galaxy Book Flex alpha misses some core features like Qi wireless charging pad and the S Pen stylus.
Samsung said that an Active Pen will also be released separately with an additional charge.
