Samsung has already proved that it will reveal its most powerful Galaxy yet next week, but those waiting for a new next-generation smartphone have already been warned not to hold their breath. The event is likely to revolve around notebooks, but Samsung may also be stretching the description of “more powerful” a little bit. Part of this line will apparently include a Galaxy Book Go that, unlike the others, will focus on the affordable Chromebook market.
Samsung is not new to Chromebooks, of course, but its Chromebooks can hardly be considered in the accessible spectrum. In fact, Galaxy Chromebooks are probably some of the most powerful in that market, which is mostly populated with mid-range and entry-level hardware. That said, Samsung is apparently looking for a completely different market this time, both in price and operating system.
The Galaxy Book Go, according to WinFuture, will be a Windows 10 on the Arm machine. There will be several configurations, but the basic model will run on a Snapdragon 7c platform, apparently. It will also have only 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, which is almost like the specifications of an Android tablet.
The clincher is that this model is supposed to cost only $ 350, which is very easy to use in the wallet, even compared to some Chromebooks. Samsung will also have a state-of-the-art Galaxy Book Go that will support 5G connections thanks to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx. However, no price for this has been leaked.
Roland Quandt also shared the figures for the real powerful Galaxy devices that Samsung will indeed announce. The Galaxy Book Pro, a full Windows 10 laptop will come in two sizes, with the 13-inch model costing $ 1,199 for its Core i7 processor, while the 15-inch notebook starts with a Core i5 for $ 1,099.
