Last year, Samsung announced the Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex, a new laptop designed to replace its Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 models. Now, before CES in 2020, the company has unveiled another new laptop, the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha, designed to bring some of the high-end features of the Galaxy Book laptop to cheaper products.
Like the more expensive Galaxy Book Flex, the Galaxy Book Flex alpha features a 2-in-1 aluminum design with a rotating 13.3-inch 1080p QLED display. It also has a more modern design, characterized by sharper corners and narrower borders. In exchange for a lower price, the Galaxy Book Flex alpha has fewer features, such as the Qi wireless charging pad built into the trackpad, or the s pen built into the laptop.
On the hardware side, the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha uses Intel’s 10th generation Core processor, 8GB or 12GB of memory and 256GB or 512GB of SSD storage. Samsung promises that the Galaxy Book Flex alpha will deliver 17.5 hours of battery life on a single charge and support USB-C fast charging.
Samsung said the Galaxy Book Flex alpha will go on sale in the first half of this year, starting at $829.99.
