Ahead of the CES 2020, Samsung has brought the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha, a budget-friendly variant to the Galaxy Book Flex that it introduced last year. The Galaxy Book Flex α (Alpha) is designed to bring some high-end features of the Galaxy Book laptops at a cheaper price point.
The main highlight of the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha is the QLED display for an immersive experience and that too without going too heavy on the battery life. Samsung claims the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha notebook offers up to 17.5 hours of battery life. It is accompanied by the Fast Charging tech which allows you to be even more connected with your laptop and perform more.
The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha features a 2-in-1 aluminum design with a rotating 13.3-inch 1080p QLED display. It is powered by Intel’s 10th-gen Comet Lake processors and onboard Intel UHD graphics, but there is no option for a dedicated graphics card.
The processor is accompanied by 8GB or 12GB RAM with storage options between 256GB or 512GB. It has a USB-C port, 2 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port, microSD card slot, and a headphone jack as connectivity options. There is a built-in fingerprint scanner on the keyboard for enhanced security.
Samsung has maintained the lower price point of the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha by eliminating a few features. You will not find the S Pen and Qi wireless charging pad. Reportedly, Samsung will offer an active pen for the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha but it will be sold separately.
The starting price of the Samsung Galaxy Flex Book Alpha is $829.99 and it will be available for purchase in the US sometime in the first half of this year.
