Just a few years ago Days chip manufacturer Qualcomm showed the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2, a processor for notebooks in the lower performance segment, with which the company wants to compete with the Pentium processors. With the Galaxy Book Go, Samsung has now introduced an entry-level notebook that – instead of Samsung’s own Exynos architecture – has the new Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 on board.
Galaxy Book Go: Samsung relies on Snapdragon
The second new Windows notebook from Samsung, the Galaxy Book Go 5G, is building the somewhat more powerful Qualcomm processor Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2. This means that the Galaxy Book Go 5G, unlike its “little” brother, has 5G support. The Galaxy Book Go offers an LTE connection and WiFi.
In terms of connections, both models are pretty similar. Both have two USB-C ports and one USB-A port, a headphone jack and a micro SD card slot. A 720p webcam is also built into both new Samsung notebooks.
The Galaxy Book Go has a 14-inch screen with a 180-degree hinge. The RAM amounts to four gigabytes, according to Samsung the device has 128 gigabytes of internal memory. The notebook is 14.9 millimeters thick and weighs around 1.38 kilograms.
Link to Windows: Mirror smartphone displays
According to Samsung, smartphone displays can be mirrored on Windows 10 devices via “Link to Windows”. Galaxy smartphones can be synchronized with the Galaxy Book Go – you can then use the notebook to answer text messages and take calls. The so-called second screen function makes an extension of the screen on the Galaxy Tab S7.
The Galaxy Book Go in “Mystic Silver” will go on sale in Germany on June 10 and will cost 449 euros. No further information is available yet about the 5G version of the 14-inch device.
