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.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion will be available in the U.S. early next year. Exact pricing hasn’t been revealed yet.
