Samsung today announced three premium mobile laptops to launch in the UK starting from next month; Galaxy Book Flex, Galaxy Book Ion and the new Galaxy Book S powered by Intel.
The new Galaxy Book S brings Intel® Core™ processor with Intel® Hybrid Technology and joins the Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex family.
These premium mobile laptops, designed to offer a seamless and connected experience across devices, form part of Samsung’s Galaxy Book portfolio and mark Samsung’s return to mobile computing in the UK.
“We have big ambitions for our return to the UK computing market and believe these three innovative devices will complete our stellar Galaxy ecosystem. Combining powerful performance with unparalleled portability, these products meet our customers’ transforming needs and eliminate the process of choosing between mobility and high-performance”, said Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice-President of Samsung UK & Ireland.
“As the way we work, play and connect with each other is evolving, it is vital that we offer products that provide our customers with enough flexibility and efficiency to remain productive wherever they are.”
Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion feature the world’s first QLED Display on a laptop, offering a vivid, true-to-life viewing experience. Outdoor Mode, enabled by a maximum 600-nit display capability, ensures every detail is clear even under bright sunlight.
Both devices make it easy to go cordless thanks to long-lasting batteries and power-conserving displays. Samsung’s industry-leading Wireless PowerShare feature can also charge any of your Qi-compatible smartphones, Galaxy Buds or wearables with the laptop’s touchpad. Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion both exemplify Samsung’s design legacy for an ultra-thin and light device that easily slips into bags and backpacks without the added bulk.
Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion also boast 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors for intelligent performance and stunning entertainment, and Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt™ 3, industry-leading wireless and wired standards for fast, flexible and easy connectivity.
