Last year Samsung announced the Snapdragon 8cx chipset powered by the Galaxy Book S series of Windows laptops. Now the company has released the Intel version of the same lineup with Lakefield’s power-efficient chipsets and a fan-less design.
These ultra-slim laptops are fitted with 13.3-inch FHD+ displays at the top with relatively large bezels and a 1MP front camera. We also boast the AKG-tuned quad-speaker system and built-in fingerprint sensors. The whole kit weighs only 950 grams and only measures 11.8 mm in thickness.
External specs include the Intel Core i5-L16G7 Lakefield SoC combined with Intel’s UHD Graphics, 8 GB LPDDR4x RAM, and up to 512 GB of eUFS capacity. Samsung has told the 42Wh power cell on board to have a long-lasting battery.
There are two USB C connectors, a hybrid headphone jack (combined microphone and speaker), and a microSD card reader as regards communication. There is WiFi 6 connectivity, as well as the option to go for LTE.
The Samsung Galaxy Book S is set to go on sale in the UK on June 12 for £999. It’ll be available with Windows 10 Home or Pro depending on the model in Gold and Gray color choices.
