Samsung Galaxy Book Flex and Ion Specifications and Features

by November 4, 2019

Samsung revealed the world’s first laptops that will sport a QLED display at the Samsung Developer Conference, 2019 – Galaxy Book Flex and Ion. These two products from the tech giant are equipped with advanced computing powers and offer an edge over competitors in terms of portability. The QLED panel that is used on these laptops was first introduced on the premium TVs by Samsung. The display gets extremely bright on both the laptops at 600 nits, with a feature of outdoor mode.

 

As the QLED panel requires higher power, Samsung bumped up the battery capacity on both the laptops. The company also claims that the software is optimized well in order to enhance power efficiency. Wireless charging tech is also present on the laptop where devices can be charged by placing them on the touchpad. Samsung calls this technology Wireless PowerShare.

Key specifications and features

Both the devices will be available in two sizes, 13-inch and 15-inch. Coming to processors, Galaxy Flex has a 10th-gen Intel Core IL processor, whereas Ion is rigged with a 10th-gen Intel Core CL processor. The top model of both the laptops come with 16 GB RAM and 1TB storage. There is also a Thunderbolt 3 and a type-C USB port. The speakers are the stereo ones from AKG.

 

The magnesium used in the Galaxy Ion is the main factor that leads to the portability and the slim form factor. Also, Ion only weighs less than a kilo. Galaxy Flex is more of a laptop-cum-tablet where the screen folds 360-degrees along with compatibility of S-pen. There is also an in-built security feature that is backed by Windows Hello and the gesture control is also supported.

 

The Senior VP of Samsung’s Mobile Communications, YoungSoo Choi said that the consumers find it difficult to decide on a laptop and get confused between the form factor and functionality aspect. He added that Flex and Ion can be a great solution to this problem due to its portability and latest computing tech.

Pricing and availability

The official statement of Samsung confirmed that both the laptops will be launched globally in December. Flex will be available in Royal Blue, while Ion will be in Aura Silver. However, there is no information about its pricing.
