Samsung has taken a second stab at Arm-based Windows laptops with the launch of the Galaxy Book Go series back in June. The device comes in three main configurations including an entry model Galaxy Book Go fitted with a Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor in either Wi-Fi or LTE variants or a more powerful Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 model equipped with a 5G modem. While the former has been on the market for several weeks, the latter has only just launched in the US.

At this stage, the Galaxy Book Go 5G model is available on the AT&T network in the single configuration payable outright for US$800 or in installments of just over US$22 a month. In addition to the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 chip mated to 8 GB of RAM, you will also get 256 GB of SSD storage (expandable up to 1 TB with a microSD card), and the 14-inch device in a single silver color option.

The 42.3 Wh battery is rated for up to 15 hours and can be charged from 50 percent to 100 percent in around 69 minutes. A zero to 100 percent charge takes just under 2.5 hours at 153 minutes. Of course, as an Arm-based Windows device there are some limitations around which x86-based software you can run on it, but it will be compatible with Windows 11 on Arm when it is launched in October.

Buy Snapdragon 7c 4GB version of the Samsung Galaxy Book Go from Amazon.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
