The Samsung Galaxy Book Go was announced at the beginning of June, and it just hit the shelves today. It starts at just $349 and it’s a great Windows alternative to Chromebooks. It’s 5G sibling will arrive later this year.
According to Samsung, the new “Galaxy Book Go series is built for today’s mobile-first users, who expect seamless communication, sustained productivity, and immersive entertainment—all in one device.”
In case you need a refresher, here are all of the specifications for the Galaxy Book Go. It has a 14-inch FHD display with a slim bezel. The hinge can fold 180-degrees and it has Dolby Atmos speakers to provide a better sound experience. The Galaxy Book Go series is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c gen 2 compute platform, and the Galaxy Book Go 5G by the Snapdragon 8cx 2 5G. As the name suggests, that variant has 5G, while the standard Galaxy Book Go doesn’t.
The device has 4GB/8GB memory as well as 64GB/128GB eUFS storage built-in. The built-in camera is 720p and it has Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.1. The military-grade durability ensures that its thin and mobile design stands up to repeated daily use, and the 42.3Wh battery should be able to provide a day’s worth of power that should be plenty for taking notes at a lecture, or studying at a library. When you’re low on power, the 25W USB Type-C charger will juice up the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Book Go (Wi-Fi) is available from today in the US, starting at $349. Currently, there is only a silver variant available.
