CES 2023 | Samsung Galaxy Book2 Go previewed with 14-inch IPS display and new Snapdragon 7c Plus Gen 3 chipset
Samsung has lifted the lid on the Galaxy Book2 Go, a compact Windows laptop based on a new ARM chipset. Seemingly, the new model contains several upgrades over the outgoing Galaxy Book Go, with the latter's TN panel swapped for a superior IPS panel. Its 16:9 aspect ratio remains though, for better or worse, with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels reproduced across its 14-inch display.
Still, the Galaxy Book2 Go should have a higher contrast ratio than its predecessor while also providing more stable viewing angles. Additionally, the Galaxy Book2 Go utilises the Snapdragon 7c Plus Gen 3, which Qualcomm claims delivers up to 60% CPU and 70% GPU improvements over the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 powering the Galaxy Book Go. Samsung has not confirmed what memory configurations will be available yet, but there will eventually be 5G-equipped SKUs.
At launch, Samsung will restrict the Galaxy Book2 Go to Wi-Fi connectivity, with the laptop capable of utilising Wi-Fi 6E. The Galaxy Book2 Go will be available first in France, where it will arrive on January 20. Samsung has not revealed pricing details or availability in other markets yet. However, the company has outlined that the device will weigh 1.44 kg, is 15.5 mm thick and could last up to 21 hours of video playback under the right conditions.
