The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex is convertible and can be rotated 360 degrees with the hinges at the center to use it as a tablet. On the other hand, the Galaxy Book Ion is a basic clamshell laptop made using lighter magnesium than the aluminum build on the Flex.

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion will be available from December this year in select markets. As of now, the company has not revealed the pricing of these laptops. We can get an update on the same later this year when the laptops are available.

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Details

The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex comes in two versions featuring 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch displays. These are FHD QLED panels with 1920 x 1080 pixels. These panels are 10-point multi-touch displays. This laptop is powered by a 10th generation Intel Core Ice Lake processor with the Intel Iris Plus Graphics or Intel UHD Graphics, 2GB GDDR5 NIVIDIA GeForce MX250 Graphics, 16GB RAM and 1TB storage space.

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex runs Windows 10 Home/Windows 10 Pro and features 720p HD camera and dual array mic. There is an in-built S Pen, Windows Hello sign in along with fingerprint authentication, and AKG Stereo speakers with a smart amp. The other aspects of the latest Samsung laptop include Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), Bluetooth 5, Thunderbolt 3, USB Type-C and a 69.7Wh battery with Wireless PowerShare.

Samsung Galaxy Book Ion Details

Talking about the other laptop that was unveiled at the Samsung Developer Conference 2019, it also comes with a similar QLED display of 13.3 or 15.6 inches with FHD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 aspect ratio, and 10-point multi-touch. The Galaxy Book Ion makes use of a 10th Generation Intel Core Comet Lake processor coupled with 2GB NVIDIA GeForce MX250 Graphics, Intel UHD Graphics, up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB storage space.


The other aspects of the Galaxy Book Ion are quite identical to those of the Galaxy Book Flex. The only difference is that the former comes with an HDMI port.

What We Think

Having said that Samsung has taken the wraps off two new laptops - the Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion, we believe that the company has taken up the PC game seriously. These laptops are thin and lightweight and pack QLED displays that are bright and vibrant. These are the company's first QLED laptops and can be stiff rivals to offerings from its competitors.
