Since Samsung’s announcement of the coming Galaxy Unpacked event, we’ve been hearing a lot about the Galaxy Book Go laptop. First, the laptop made its way to WiFi Alliance then, the official support page got published. Now, we’re looking at yet another leak revealing key specifications and pricing of the variants. For those who’re unaware, this is not the first time we’re hearing about the pricing of the laptop. A couple of days ago, a notable leakster revealed the pricing of the laptop.
Galaxy Book Go specs and pricing information are here!
This report is again courtesy of WinFuture. According to the report, the laptop will arrive with a 14-inch IPS LCD panel. The display will have a Full HD resolution along with a 300 nits peak brightness. The laptop will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c chipset featuring eight CPU cores clocked at 2.55Ghz. The chipset is paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB built-in storage. The laptop will also have a MicroSD slot for expansion if you need it.

It looks like users will not be able to expand the RAM meaning you’re stuck with 4GB which might be a deal-breaker for many. The laptop comes with a backlit keyboard, a large trackpad, and a 720p webcam. For connectivity, it will feature LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 5,1, one USB 2.0 port, and a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port. The laptop is backed by a 42.3WHr battery that supports fast charging. In fact, the battery can refuel pretty quickly thanks to 25W fast charging support. The company claims that the laptop can last for around 48 hours on a single charge.
Even though the laptop is using a Snapdragon chipset, it still runs on the ARM version of Windows 10. Apart from the specifications, the report also mentions the pricing information of the variants. It looks like the laptop will arrive in two variants – WiFi-only and LTE. The LTE version will set you back around €449 (i.e. roughly $550) in Germany. The non-LTE version will of course be cheaper and is priced at $349 for the US market.
An affordable laptop for all your basic needs!
Considering the leaked specs and pricing, it looks like Galaxy Book Go will compete with the Chromebooks. Chromebooks are generally used by those who are looking for an affordable option for basic tasks and browsing. The Galaxy Book Go will also serve that purpose but will give you Windows 10 capabilities along with the LTE connectivity option.
