Alex Alderson,

Intel officially announced its Lakefield processors today, which are based on its 10 nm Sunny Cove and Tremont cores. If you are interested in the specifics of Intel Lakefield processors, then you can read more about them here. Some of the first confirmed Lakefield devices will be the ThinkPad X1 Fold, Surface Neo and Galaxy Book S. While the first two have yet to have been given fixed release dates, Samsung has confirmed that it will start shipping the Galaxy Book S from July 3.

We have already had a hands-on with the Galaxy Book S, albeit the Qualcomm Snapdragon version. The Lakefield and Snapdragon models share the same essential characteristics, including a 13.3-inch display, two USB Type-C ports and a 42 Wh battery.

The Lakefield version of the Galaxy Book S comes with a Core i5-L16G7 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB or 512 GB of storage. Only the Mercury Gray and 256 GB edition is available to order from Samsung Canada at the time of writing, where it costs CAD$1,299.99. According to the product listing, the 512 GB model will only be available in Earthy Gold. A Samsung Germany press release suggested that the Lakefield version of the Galaxy Book S would start at €1,129 (US$1,255).
