Galaxy Book Flex: Release date, price, specs and performance

Our Samsung Galaxy Book Flex review is now live. Check it out to see our final verdict on the 2-in-1 laptop. 

Samsung laptops are back in the UK and they’re making some noise. Samsung’s new Galaxy Book Flex, Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book S (Intel) are all arriving this month.

The Flex is Samsung’s latest Ultrabook focused on creators – both inside and out. The Flex comes with a stylus and has a convertible design, perfect for aspiring digital artists out there.

The specs are quite impressive too, putting it toe-to-toe with devices like the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 and HP Spectre x360 13. Along with a pleasing combo of a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD storage, creators will also be delighted to see Samsung use its famed QLED displays – usually seen on its televisions.

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex performance

Samsung isn’t offering a whole lot of variety when it comes to its new UK laptop releases – offering just one version of specs across each model (not counting different sizes).

However, for both the Flex and the Ion, Samsung seems to have made the right decision in picking this single SKU for consumers. The specs of the Flex are a pleasing combo of a good amount of power and storage for a pretty sensible price. You’ll have to wait for our full review for the lowdown on if they made the correct decision.

The Flex gets the benefit of the Ice Lake version of Intel’s 10th Gen mobile processor – which means it’ll come with superior graphics compared to that of the Comet Lake processor of the Galaxy Book Ion. 

This inclusion along with the stylus and convertible design make this the Samsung laptop to get for creators. However, bear in mind that this laptop is without a dedicated GPU so professional video editing and design work will remain out of the question.
