Samsung Galaxy Book Go to arrive in Wi-Fi only, LTE and 5G variants starting at US$349.99
Samsung has already confirmed that it will be hosting a Galaxy Unpacked event this week, during which it will announce new laptops. So far, leaks have confirmed that the company will reveal the Galaxy Book, Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 Convertible. However, a Windows 10 on ARM device named the Galaxy Book Go is also expected to launch soon.
According to WinFuture, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Book Go at US$349.99, a price that clearly positions the device as a Chromebook alternative. This model will come without LTE connectivity, but WinFuture alleges that some countries like Germany will only receive the pricier LTE edition. Apparently, the latter will retail for €449 in the Eurozone, so we imagine that Samsung will charge US$449 for the Galaxy Book Go LTE in the US, too.
WinFuture believes that Samsung will also release a Galaxy Book Go 5G, although it is unclear when or for how much. Accordingly, the 5G model will have a Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3, which should offer significantly better performance than the Snapdragon 7c destined for the Wi-Fi and LTE models.
All models should have the same 14-inch LCD screen though, along with a USB 2.0 Type-A port, a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C port, a fingerprint scanner and a 720p webcam. The Galaxy Book Go will have a 42.3 Wh battery too that can be recharged using a 25 W Type-C power supply. WinFuture states that Samsung will equip the entry-level model with 4 GB of RAM, but we would expect more RAM configurations, especially on the 5G model.
