Samsung laptop

Two Samsung Galaxy Book PCs that run on Windows 10 are available for purchase. The Galaxy Book Flex, which sports a QLED display, is the flagship of the Book lineup that Samsung released today.

Likewise, you can now get your Galaxy Book Ion, which also has a QLED screen. The two PCs introduce display features and qualities you have experienced if you have used a QLED monitor before.

The Galaxy Book Flex

You will want to check out the Galaxy Book Flex if you are a fan of convertibles. It is a 2-in-1 device that can quickly transition from a laptop to a tablet based on your computing needs.

The PC sports an ultra-slim design, making it perfect for users on the move.

But it’s got a lot going on under that attractive exterior. A 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor delivers split-second responsiveness for easy multitasking. The Wireless PowerShare turns your trackpad into a charging pad, and with its multi-workday battery life, you can keep working and creating uninterrupted.

The Galaxy Book Ion

When it comes to processing power, this Windows 10 PC packs a punch with its 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor. It also comes with a Bluetooth-powered S Pen to help you manage your presentations from some distance across the room.

However, the design of its screen differs slightly from that of the Flex Book. With this one, you may tilt the display back the spine to raise the keypad a bit.

Your Phone app

Both PCs support connectivity with the Your Phone app. But you need to have a Samsung smartphone to successfully create a connection. The application lets you view your latest photos, text messages, and even mobile alerts on your Windows 10 Galaxy Book.

Microsoft is currently testing a copy and paste feature for Your Phone app. Too bad only select Windows 10 insiders are able to use it in the meantime.

QLED tech

The QLED laptop screens use a combination of LED and quantum dot technology. They produce bright colors in unprecedented precision, making for a much-enhanced viewing experience.

So, probably Samsung has an edge here because of the difference in picture quality that is not possible with traditional LEDs.

While Samsung has built QLED displays before, these were not for laptops. For example, it launched the CHG90 QLED gaming monitor in 2017.

Now the South-Korean tech giant has a chance to stake its claim in the competitive ultra-portable PC market.
