Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha 13 (α)

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha boasts QLED display, crazy-long battery life for $829
Source: Laptop Mag English
If that 13.3-inch QLED display is as good as we're hoping, and Samsung didn't compromise on performance to get the price so low, then the Galaxy Book Flex Alpha could ask serious questions of the HP Envy 13, our current favorite sub-$1,000 laptop.

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha – affordable QLED 2-in-1 ultrabook
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Availability is still set for sometime around the first half of the year, though, so it might be a while until we get them in stores. But if not in a hurry, they could be worth the wait. At the same time, keep in mind that Samsung laptops are not worldwide available, so if you’re in Europe, for instance, you’re not going to get them.

The $830 Samsung Galaxy Flex Alpha is a cheaper 2-in-1 for CES 2020
Source: CNet English
Following the Galaxy Book Flex announced in October, Samsung is launching its less expensive $830 sibling for CES 2020. The Galaxy Book Flex Alpha is slated to ship it by June. (Sorry, it's "Galaxy Book Flex α" because we all use the Greek letters, right?) To hit that price, Samsung made the Pen optional, dropped Thunderbolt 3 support and shrank the battery. It also has a lower-end set of memory, storage and processor options and comes in silver, rather than blue.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
