Samsung is one of the companies committed to the Windows 10 on Arm push, and this week, the South Korean company has officially unveiled two new devices running this platform.
Equipped with Snapdragon chips provided by Qualcomm, the new Samsung Galaxy Book Go and Galaxy Book Go 5G are both supposed to provide the same thing as all the other Windows 10 Arm devices out there: impressive battery life in a super-portable form factor that allows for an always-connected experience.
The Galaxy Book Go is also pretty affordable, as the device is available from $349. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor which can be paired with a maximum of 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage – the base version, however, sports 4GB RAM and just 64GB of eUFS storage.
The 14-inch LCD laptop tips the scales at just 13.8 kg, so it’s pretty portable, which is exactly the whole strategy behind Windows 10 Arm devices in the first place.
Sales starting later this month
Samsung hasn’t shared the pricing information for the Galaxy Book Go 5G, but it’s obviously expected to be more expensive than its standard sibling given it features 5G connectivity. What’s more, it features the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 processor, so a boost of power is also expected to be offered.
Customers of the new Galaxy Book Go laptops will also get the typical feature lineup that includes two USB-C ports, one USB-A port, a microSD card slot, and a headphone jack, because what’s a laptop without a 3.5mm audio connector.
The South Korean company says customers will be able to order the Galaxy Book Go starting June 10, with additional information about the 5G model, including the market availability, expected to be shared at a later date when the company is ready to start the sales of the device.
