Samsung Galaxy Book Flex

The first Samsung notebooks with Quantum Dot LED displays (QLED) have not yet arrived on the market, but the South Korean company has already presented an even more convenient new model. This is the new Samsung Galaxy Book Flex α, a convertible notebook with a 13.3-inch Full HD QLED display (1920 x 1080 pixels), 10th gen Intel Core processor with Intel UHD graphics and starting price of $ 829. It will go on sale in the first half of 2020, then by the summer, but we will probably have the opportunity to see it live at CES 2020.

The basic version will be equipped with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of memory on the SSD drive, but Samsung will offer other configurations with a maximum of 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of NVMe disk storage. However, all SKUs will feature an aluminum chassis, backlit keyboard, fingerprint sensor, WiFi 6 support, 1.5W stereo speakers, 720p camera with dual-array digital microphones, 54Wh battery and a discrete selection of ports : one USB Type-C, two USB 3.0 Type-A, HDMI, 3.5 mm audio jack and microSD card reader. Samsung Galaxy Book Flex α measures 304 x 203 x 14 mm, weighs 1.17 kg and supports the optional active pen (sold separately).

The strength of this convertible is basically the display: the Quantum Dot screens offer a wider color range and deeper blacks than the normal LED displays but not as much as the AMOLED displays, also consuming less energy. Samsung claims that Galaxy Book Flex α can display over a billion colors and supports up to 600 nits of brightness. Priced at $ 829, the new Samsung Galaxy Book Flex α will be much cheaper than any other AMOLED screen notebook we’ve seen to date.
