Samsung Galaxy Book Flex α

Samsung refreshes the Galaxy Book lineup with the Flex Alpha (α) days before the CES 2020. This will join the Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex that was launched last year. It has a 13.3-inch QLED display to the front and a 10th gen Intel Core Processor within. But like its name, the new convertible comes at a cheaper price tag. So, let’s see what are the areas where Samsung has cut corners.

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha highlights

Starting with what’s already discussed – this one flaunts a 13.3-inch QLED panel with FHD resolution. It touches max screen legibility of 600-nits. The bezels are pretty evident at the top and especially at the bottom. At the chin, there’s a Samsung logo. Atop, you have a 720p HD webcam backed by a Dual Array Digital Mic.

Since its a 2-in-1 convertible, you can transform it in varied formats like a tent, like a slate, etc. Samsung sells an Active Pen separately, with which you can jot down or draw something on the display.

Inside, it packs a 10th generation Intel Core Processor aided by Intel UHD Graphics. The available memory configs are – 8GB / 12GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB / 512GB HDD and up to 1TB SSD (NVMe). If that’s not enough, you can resort to a MicroSD expansion.

The battery capacity goes up to 54 Wh which translates to 17.5-hours. When it begs for the charge, you can top it up using a fast charging adapter.
