Just months after the launch of Samsung‘s 2-in-1 Galaxy Book Flex, the South Korean tech giant is now releasing an even more updated version boasting 5G and WiFi 6 connectivity, making it the first laptop from the brand that supports 5G.
Aside from faster connections, Samsung has also upgraded the new Flex with 11th Gen Intel CPUs, offering both a Core i5 or Core i7 from the American tech company’s fresh Tiger Lake series, bringing more processing power and smoother operations to the laptop. “As a 5G Intel-based platform, you really aren’t compromising on battery life, wireless connectivity, CPU performance, compatibility in the Windows ecosystem — they really are able to bring everybody’s wish list together,” Intel’s vice president and general manager of mobile client platforms Chris Walker told The Verge. Other features include a 13.3-inch 1920 x 1080 display, a 13-megapixel “world-facing” camera, 512GB of SSD storage, 16GB of RAM, a 69.7Wh battery, and a brand new “royal silver” finish.
There’s currently no information yet from Samsung regarding availability or pricing, so those interested should definitely be on the lookout for more updates to come.
Elsewhere in tech, Apple’s third generation AirPods is rumored to release in early 2021.
