Samsung declares Snapdragon-powered Galaxy Book Go laptops from $349
Samsung has declared two new Windows PCs running Arm-based processors. The Galaxy Book Go and Galaxy Book Go 5G both use Snapdragon chips from Qualcomm as opposed to Samsung’s own Exynos designs.
The Galaxy Book Go is an entry-level model that begins at $349. It has the updated Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor that Qualcomm reported a month ago, as well as 4GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of eUFS storage. The display is a 14-inch 1080p LCD and the PC is 14.9mm thick, weighing in at 1.38kg.
The Galaxy Book Go 5G, then, uses Qualcomm’s more powerful Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 processor — however different laptops with that chip aren’t exactly powerhouses — and, as the name proposes, it incorporates 5G connectivity. Regardless of running on a Snapdragon chip with an integrated LTE modem, the $349 Galaxy Book Go is actually Wi-Fi-only.
Specs otherwise appear to be shared between the two laptops. The Galaxy Book Go has two USB-C ports, one USB-A port, a headphone jack, a 720p webcam, and a microSD card slot. Samsung hasn’t given pricing or release information for the Galaxy Book Go 5G presently, however the $349 Galaxy Book Go is going on sale on June 10th.
