Samsung Galaxy Book Go: Qualcomm Snapdragon and 18-hour Battery

On June 3, Samsung finally confirmed the launch of their newest laptops - Galaxy Book Go and Galaxy Book Go 5G. On their website, the tech giant stated that the laptops could keep their cool despite lacking a fan, which is made possible by their lightweight design.

According to Thurrott, Qualcomm said that they would release an updated pair of Snapdragon ARM CPUs specifically made for PCs. It turns out that Samsung's Galaxy Book Go Laptops will have these two as their primary vital features. This confirmation came as a shock to fans because instead of using their own brand's processor, Exynos, Samsung went with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon system.

The new Samsung Galaxy Book Go Laptops will have an innovative, energy-saving Qualcomm Snapdragon system to ensure that they deliver responsive and instant-on execution. As a result, the laptops will consume less power.

The company mentioned that the laptops would have an average of 18 hours in terms of battery longevity. But this estimate is only roughly based on typical usage conditions, not on extensive workloads.

Consumers are looking forward to the laptops' performance because all older Snapdragon-powered laptops came through with their claims and promises, especially regarding their long battery lives.

Galaxy Book Go Specs

Samsung Galaxy Book Go and Samsung Galaxy Book Go 5G will be running arm-based processors, according to The VergeThe Korean-based tech tycoon will release two versions of the laptop: the Galaxy Book Go and Galaxy Book Go 5G.

Samsung Galaxy Book Go is an entry-level version with a starting price of $349. This model has an upgraded Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 Processor - Qualcomm's newest development. 

This beautiful entry-level laptop will be available with 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of storage (eUFS). Galaxy Book Go will have a 14-inch 1080p LCD sporting 14.9mm of thickness as per the display. It is roughly 1.38kg, similar to previous Samsung laptops.

But despite having the power of the latest Snapdragon chip paired with an LTE modem, the Galaxy Book GO is just Wi-Fi only at $349.

With this in mind, the Galaxy Book Go 5G will use Qualcomm's most powerful processor yet - the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 Processor. However, it is essential to know that other laptops with this chip are not precisely all-powerful. As the name suggests, this higher-end model has 5G connectivity - but that's about it.

The two models seem to share most of their specs. According to Samsung's statements, the two laptops will have two USB-C ports, a headphone jack, one USB-A port, a microSD card slot, and a 720p webcam. 

The entry-level model, Galaxy Book Go, will go on sale by June 10, with a starting price of $349. Samsung's high-end model, Galaxy Book Go 5G, still has no release date.
