Samsung Galaxy Book S 2020 launched with Intel Lakefield chipset and LTE


Samsung announced its latest bet on the ultrathin notebook market with the launch of Galaxy Book S 2020. This is an upgrade over the first version, launched in 2019. The most notable difference is the abandonment of the Snapdragon 8cX mobile processor in favor of an Intel Lakefield chipset CPU.

Galaxy Book S is built for the next generation of users who are looking for a computing device that provides outstanding productivity, wide-ranging connectivity, enhanced mobility and expansive continuity across devices and operating systems to help them get more done in less time.

Galaxy Book S is the first ever device to offer this unique processor with Intel’s Foveros 3D stacking technology and a hybrid CPU architecture.

With this processor, Galaxy Book S efficiently provides an exceptional laptop performance. The processor delivers full Windows 10 application compatibility and intelligently balances multiple high-performing processes during use while conserving battery when not in use.

A fan-less design allows the Galaxy Book S to be slimmer than traditional laptops and helps it to run noiselessly, even during sustained and intense periods of work.

As we can see in the images and specifications, it is an ultra-thin portable computer, created for consumers who need access to Windows everywhere, without compromising portability. The Galaxy Book S 2020 features Wi-Fi 6 and even LTE (4G), thanks to the SIM card slot.

Galaxy Book S is available in two shades, Earthy Gold and Mercury Gray. The Samsung Galaxy Book S (2020) is priced at EUR 999 and will be avaialble in UK in June. Availability in other global market has not been announced yet.
