Today, Samsung, the Korean Tech Giant, launched two of its budget laptops namely Galaxy Book Go & Galaxy Book Go 5G. These are two analogous laptops, sharing similarities with each other but at the same time embraces their own features.
Woncheol Chai, Samsung‘s SVP & Head of Experience Planning Team, Mobile Communications Business, said and we quote that: “The Galaxy Book Go series is built for today’s mobile-first users, who expect seamless communication, sustained productivity, and immersive entertainment—all in one device. With the new addition to the Galaxy Book, Samsung offers wider options to our consumers to choose a device that best fits their needs.”
By this we can conclude that Samsung Galaxy Book Go series laptops are specially designed for people who juggles between work & study requirements. Also, Galaxy Book Go series laptops are set to compete against popular laptops such as Google’s Chromebook or Microsoft’s Surface.
Samsung Galaxy Book Go is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 7C Gen2 SoC, while the Galaxy Book Go 5G is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 SoC. Samsung claims that both models have passed military-grade, MIL-STD-810G tests.
Both laptops feature an 180-degree turn hinge, and minimal bezels with preinstalled Microsoft Your Phone App to connect your phone with laptops.
Galaxy Book Go is designed with 14-inch FHD + TFT display with 1,920 x 1,080 resolution. It is powered by Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 7C Gen2 chip combined with Adreno GPU. The device runs on Microsoft Windows 10 Home (adaptable to Windows 10 Pro) and packs 4GB and 8GB LPDDR4x RAM options. It also offers two separate eUFS internal storage options:- 4GB and 128GB.
As for connectivity, it features Wi-Fi 802.11ac, LTE (optional), Bluetooth v5.1, two USB Type-C ports, a USB 2.0 port, a Nano SIM card slot, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The device encompasses a 720p HD Webcam, a digital microphone and 42.3Wh battery with 25W Type-C charging support. As for dimensions, Samsung Galaxy Book Go measures about 323.9 x 224.8 x 14.9mm in size and weighs about 1.38 kilograms.
Moving on to Galaxy Book Go 5G, the company has not provided any detailed specifications, except it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 with Wi-Fi 6 & LTE connectivity SoC.
Both of the laptops will be kick-off in silver finish colour option (but we expect to see more colours later on).
Samsung Galaxy Book Go is priced at $349, which is 25,500 INR approximately for the Wi-Fi only variant. As of now, the LTE version of the laptop is still far from pricing.
Samsung Galaxy Book GO laptop will go on sale from June, but in specific markets only. Samsung has also said that Galaxy Book Go 5G will be available for sale later in this year. And, there is no news about its pricing as well.
