Samsung has reportedly applied for a European trademark for a "Book Flex" with an unusual new addition: 5G. Therefore, it may have a convertible PC with this connectivity in the works. This leak offers no hints as to the putative next-gen device's further specs, OS and chipset included, however.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

Samsung's 2-in-1 versions of its Galaxy Book notebooks are known as the Flex variants of their series. The latest of these - the 13.3 - gained a decent amount of approval in our testing. Now, it appears that one of its future successors is destined for a particularly next-gen ability.

This, according to a new trademark reportedly filed with the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), may be the ability to use 5G. This leak has led to speculation that the corresponding device could be a convertible PC with an S-Pen, as with the Flex 13.3.

However, as the document is dated August 6, 2020 (one day after Samsung's major Galaxy Unpacked launch event), this probably will not be confirmed or denied any time soon. Similarly, it does not give any hints as to how the putative Galaxy Book Flex might support 5G: perhaps it is to be one of Intel's upcoming MediaTek T700-enabled notebooks.

On the other hand, the "trademark filing" contains a strange discrepancy: it pertains to the name Samsung Book Flex 5G, whereas the rest of its potential line have been Galaxy Book Flex models throughout its history. This detail may impact on the quality of the leak somewhat.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
