Samsung Unveils Galaxy Book Flex With Tiger Lake Bite And 5G Wireless Punch For Mobile Warriors

The 5G capability is not the only major feature this new device packs, however. Going inside the laptop, the horsepower will come from a new 11th Gen Intel Core processor (up to Core i7) with Iris Xe graphics. This horsepower, combined with the battery power, instant wake feature, and responsiveness of the device make the Galaxy Book Flex 5G an Intel EVO-qualified device. This would put it into a similar category as the Acer Swift 5 which was also announced today. The overall specifications we have on file for the Galaxy Book Flex 5G are as follows:

Now, going around the device, it is not your standard laptop. It is a folding 2-in-1 device, allowing for tablet or laptop modes which further increase versatility. No matter which way you use the device, though, an included S-Pen will be useful for drawing, taking notes, and interacting with the device in general. As far as I/O goes, the Galaxy Book Flex 5G will have Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, USB-A 3.0, HDMI, a headphone/mic jack, UFS and microSD slot, and a SIM slot for the 5G plan you pick up.
