Hong Kong – January 20, 2020 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. today announced the launch of new personal computers, Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Ion, unveiling the Galaxy Book series in Hong Kong for the first time. The Galaxy Book series is the first Samsung notebook series with a QLED screen, offering an unprecedented viewing experience. Featuring a stylish design, the Galaxy Book series is extremely light and slim enough to be carried anywhere. Seamless connection to Galaxy devices, together with powerful performance, helps users to increase productivity and handle different tasks with ease. The Galaxy Book series expands the limits of traditional personal computers, providing the best experience for consumers with increasing mobile-working needs.

 

“Samsung is committed to the next level of smart mobile experience, exploring the core value of next-generation computing devices. We have enhanced the design concept of the notebooks with utmost performance to meet the different needs of consumers. The new Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion provide users with extraordinary productivity, mobility and convenience through state-of-the-art technology, leading a new generation of mobile products to a greater future,” said Ms. Yiyin Zhao, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd.

 

QLED Screen Delivers the Ultimate Visual Experience

The first Samsung notebook series with a QLED screen, Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion offer users rich, life-like and accurate colors. Certified for color accuracy by the world-renowned VDE, an institution based in Germany, the QLED screen delivers 100% color volume. Users can set optimal QLED colors via simple settings, using Auto, Dynamic, Standard, Reading, Natural and Professional Profiles. In order to offer the best visual experience in different environments, the peak brightness of both Galaxy Book devices can reach up to 600nits, so that users can watch movies, surf the web and work on documents in any bright environment without losing clarity. The bezel of the screen on the 13.3-inch Galaxy Book Flex measures just 3.9mm and just 4.9mm on the 15.5-inch model, ensuring a more immersive viewing experience.

 

Connect to Galaxy Devices to Work with Flexibility

Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion both come pre-installed with Samsung DeX, helping users to handle different tasks with ease and flexibility. Plug in a USB cable and experience seamless device continuity between your Samsung phones[1] and Galaxy Book series, including sending messages, checking mobile emails or browsing photo galleries on a larger screen to raise productivity.

 

Galaxy Book Flex: 2-in-1 Mobile Tablet PC with S Pen Rewrites the Tradition

Adopting the enhanced Samsung design language “Solidity”, Galaxy Book Flex comes with a full metal body painted in a Royal Blue finish, a bold color that immediately demands attention. To give users on-the-go productivity, Samsung Galaxy Book Flex is built from aluminum, which is strong against scratches and dents so is perfect to carry in any bag. In addition, almost 20 hours’ battery life means full-day tasks can be completed with ease.

 

Samsung understands the high mobility required for personal computers so Galaxy Book Flex boasts a 360-degree hinge promising two completely different working experiences on a tablet or a personal computer. Featuring wider keycaps and enhanced S Pen, Galaxy Book Flex copes equally well whether users are typing complicated codes or drawing sophisticated artwork.

 

The elegant design of S Pen offers a natural writing and painting experience, while the internal sensor provides greater motion control, allowing users to control the computer with simple gestures. The new Air Actions for the computer work across different applications, including PowerPoint, Skype, Netflix and YouTube. Matching with users’ movement, various functions can be remotely controlled, like playing and pausing, controlling the volume and more. Users can further customize the gestures to work freely in their own way.

 

Samsung is constantly developing the S Pen App ecosystem, bringing more creative platforms through more compatible applications, to allow users to exploit unlimited potential. Previously available only for Android, Galaxy Book Flex brings PENUP to Windows on a widescreen canvas, so that users can appreciate every detail of artwork in close-up. Samsung Notes provides a wide choice of brushes and colors, allowing users to create artwork or take quick notes during meetings. Using Voice Note with Pen, users can create memos and notes to facilitate revision afterwards during recording.

 

Galaxy Book Flex comes with fast NVMe PCIe SSD lots, giving users plenty of storage for files as well as fast read and write speeds. NVMe type SSDs deliver at least three times faster read and write speeds compared to conventional SATA3 SSDs, which makes transferring files, launching apps and saving files much faster. In addition, Galaxy Book Flex supports microSD and UFS slots to gain even more storage.

 

Galaxy Book Ion: Ultralight laptop with Excellent Mobile Working Experience

Galaxy Book Ion boasts a refined, clean, linear design in an Aura Silver color that changes according to the surrounding light. The blue streak running across the hinge is distinctive and iconic, delivering a stylish urban look. The 13.3-inch model measures just 12.9mm and weights 970g, making it the slimmest device in its class. The body is made of magnesium, with a shockingly lightweight slim bezel that elevates the Ion to the next level of portability. The Galaxy Book Ion is built for on-the-go professionals who need an unparalleled mobile work experience.

 

The 15.6-inch Galaxy Book Ion features the QLED display and a 5.2mm slim bezel, achieving a high screen-to-body ratio of 87%, to provide a wider screen and deliver less distraction. The ratio of the 13.3-inch model   reaches 85.3%. Galaxy Book Ion also has a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees, offering minimal distortion of picture quality. Users can enjoy a vivid viewing experience from any angle.

 

Galaxy Book Ion comes with a built-in 66.9Wh battery that lasts over 21 hours on a full charge, offering a reliably long performance period. With a compatible external battery pack[2] and the fast charging function, users can use the laptop for nearly 3 hours on a 10-min charge, enjoying an uninterrupted working experience. It is also easy to charge WPC Qi certified devices and compatible wearables with Wireless PowerShare[3].

Upgraded Software and Performance for a Richer Experience 

Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion are equipped with a range of brand new software, which bring a more convenient operation experience and allow users to express unlimited creativity. Quick Search is an app that gives you super-fast search results. Live Wallpaper can automatically change wallpaper images based on user-defined interests. The advanced smart search feature in Samsung Gallery offers more specific photo recognition. The smart album in Studio Plus analyzes photos inside the selected folders and automatically creates videos, to relive every exciting moment. 

Co-engineered with Intel as part of the Project Athena innovation program, Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion passed rigorous testing to meet targets for exceptional responsiveness, high efficiency battery life and instant action. In addition, both Galaxy Book models boast 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors for intelligent working performance and stunning entertainment.
