The Galaxy Book Go is Samsung’s cheapest notebook with Windows 10 based upon ARM. This simple device features LTE, and a robust housing. It costs 449 Euros in Europe, and $349 in the United States.
We are now taking over the presentation of the Galaxy Book Go by Samsung. Samsung didn’t officially present it at yesterday’s unpacked event and hasn’t published any information about it. Samsung may not have the time to present the device to you directly so the company asked YouTubers and bloggers to do so.
Notebooks with ARM processors or Windows are only available to private customers in the higher price ranges. The Samsung Galaxy Book Go is changing that. This Korean manufacturer will now bring the LTE-capable Snapdragon laptop on the mass market. It is necessary to make some compromises in order to get it to work at such low prices.
Samsung uses the red pencil
The Samsung Galaxy Book go features a 14-inch IPS screen with a high Full HD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. It is impossible to find a high-quality housing and a touchscreen. The device was clearly made to be sold as cheaply and easily as possible.
The price is 349 USD in the US, but without LTE, and 449 Euros in Europe. The customer receives the Snapdragon 7c, a 2.5-gigahertz fast octa core SoC, which is based on a Qualcomm smartphone chip. It has a slim one with four gigabytes RAM and 128GB internal flash storage. This latter can be easily expanded with a microSD Card.
The Galaxy BookGo with Snapdragon8cx Gen3 is the best variant. It has integrated 5G support, a more powerful processor and eight gigabytes of working memory. As we have seen with other budget notebooks, the Galaxy Book Go features a fairly standard set of equipment. The battery is 42.3 watts long and can be charged using the USB Type C port. It can also charge up to 25W.
You can also use Bluetooth 5.1, Miracast and ac-WLAN. There are also one Type-C port and one USB-A. This operating system is Windows 10 64-bit ARM edition. Samsung has added a fingerprint reader to the power button of the device, which allows you to securely log in via Windows Hello.
The Galaxy Book Go, especially in this price range, is certified to US military standard 810G. The Galaxy Book Go is designed to withstand falls up to 1.20m and has a hinge that can be folded up to 180 degrees. It is dust-proof and does not feature a fan.
It is still unclear whether the Galaxy Book Go will succeed and offer a user-friendly experience. Samsung is making ARM notebooks with Windows much more affordable with this device.
