CES 2020: Samsung’s Galaxy Book Flex α aims to deliver more for less

More laptop, less Galaxy Book

Since Samsung’s Galaxy Books always overdeliver when it comes to features, it makes perfect sense for Samsung to pull out some non-essential Galaxy Book-esque features and launch a notebook that’s, well, just a laptop. And ahead of CES 2020, the Korean electronics giant did just that by announcing the Galaxy Book Flex α (pronounced as ‘Alpha’). While it was meant to deliver all the goodness of a Galaxy Book in a more affordable package (priced from $829), it does skip on a few non-essentials like the Qi wireless charging trackpad and the S-Pen that slots into the body of the 2-in-1. Apart from that you pretty much get all the good stuff. There’s Intel’s 10th Gen Core chipsets to choose from, 8/12GB RAM and 256/512GB of internal storage. And if that did not impress you, the 13.3-inch QLED display and claimed 17.5-hour battery life surely will. All eyes are on this affordable 2-in-1 in 2020.
