Samsung announces Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion laptops

By Anton D. Nagy October 29, 2019, 2:00 pm

Samsung is expanding its laptop portfolio today with the addition of two premium notebook computers: the Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion. Samsung has built the two with ultra-portability and ultra-powerful computing in mind.

In terms of highlights (you can check out the full spec sheet below, and more details in our in-depth hands-on post), the two feature the first QLED displays on a laptop. With the 10th Gen Intel Core processor at their core, the two computers promise fast computing capabilities.

While the Galaxy Book Flex is a 2-in-1, thanks to its 360-degree hinge that allows experiencing Windows both on a computer and tablet (enhanced by the S-Pen), the Galaxy Book Ion was engineered specifically with portability in mind.
