A couple of months back, Samsung revamped its notebook lineup by announcing two new laptops namely Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion with QLED displays and an overhauled design in line with its other products. And now, ahead of CES 2020, the company announces another new notebook in the same series named Galaxy Book Flex Alpha that will sit beneath the above two as a more affordable model.
The newly announced Galaxy Book Flex Alpha looks and features exact same specifications as the standard Galaxy Book Flex with some shortcomings. To keep the price down, the Flex Alpha skips Qi Wireless Charging built into the trackpad of the Flex. Also, the S-Pen will not be included as part of the package even though it will have support for it. On top of that, if you happen to buy the S-Pen separately, you will need to take extra care of it since the notebook does not feature any slot to accommodate it.
As far as the primary specifications are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha will come only in a 13.3-inch model with 1080p QLED display. Just like the Flex, it will be a 2 in 1 convertible notebook with aluminium casing, sharp edges, and slim bezels. Under the hood, it will be powered by Intel’s 10th-Gen Core processors paired with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of SSD storage. Samsung claims the notebook will offer 17.5 hours of battery life with support for fast charging via USB Type-C.
The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha will start at $829.99 and will be cheaper than the much premium Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Alpha whose prices are yet to be announced.
