About four months ago, Samsung took the veil off the Galaxy Book Flex α (alpha), and it seems like the company is finally getting ready to release the product. That is, at least in South Korea, where Samsung has prepared a pre-sale event between April 24-28.
It should launch in the USA in June at the latest
While the Galaxy Book Flex alpha pre-sale event will likely remain limited to Samsung’s home country, the clock is undeniably ticking and the laptop is technically two months away from a market release in the USA, at the very latest.
This is because Samsung’s original launch schedule for the Galaxy Book Flex alpha claimed the 2-in-1 notebook will be released in the USA in the first half of 2020. We’re four months in, and the wait must be nearly over.
The Galaxy Book Flex alpha is a sub-$1,000 QLED 2-in-1
The Galaxy Book Flex alpha is a budget-friendlier version of the full-fledged Book Flex, and it’s expected to go on sale in the USA for $829. This sum of money secures you a 13.3-inch QLED FHD display, a 10th generation Intel Core processor, Intel UHD Graphics, 256GB of storage expandable by up to 1TB, a fingerprint sensor, and a 54Wh battery, to name a few.
The landing page for the Galaxy Book Flex alpha is already live in South Korea, albeit there are no options to purchase the product at the time of writing. This will likely change very soon. We’ll keep you up to speed as the story develops.
