It looks like Samsung is serious about its ARM-based Windows 10 laptop segment. The company recently added two new models to the Galaxy Book laptop lineup.
The South Korea-based company announced the Galaxy Book Go and the Galaxy Book Go 5G based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor instead of their in-house Exynos series.
The Galaxy Book Go is the entry-level model in the series priced at $349. The laptop features the new Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor, which came out in May. The laptop comes in two configurations. The Galaxy Book Go base model has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, whereas the higher end comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It features a 14 inch LCD screen with a Full HD resolution. The laptop is 14.9mm thick and weighs 1.38kg.
Coming to the Galaxy Book Go 5G, the laptop uses a more powerful Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 processor. Even though the laptop has a Snapdragon chip with an LTE modem, it is Wi-Fi only and offers 5G connectivity.
Other specs remain the same. Both models offer two USB-C ports, a single USB A port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 720p webcam. If you want to expand the internal storage, they do come with a microSD card slot.
The Galaxy Book Go 5G price is unknown, whereas the Galaxy Book Go starts from $349and is set to go on sale on June 10. It looks like the Windows on ARM segment is really firing up since many people are leaning towards laptops more than desktops.
