Samsung had introduced the Galaxy Book Go two months ago. The ARM-powered Windows 10 laptop went on sale in the US last month. Today, the company has launched the Galaxy Book Go in South Korea with a focus on students. The laptop will be available through offline and online retailers as well as the three network carriers in the country: LG Uplus, KT, and SKT.
The Galaxy Book Go is priced at KRW 590,600 (around $510) in South Korea. It will be available in just one color: Silver. Those who buy the Galaxy Book Go by August 10, 2021, will get a funky Wiggle Wiggle pouch and three Disney stickers. Samsung is also offering a 3-month subscription to Millie’s e-book service, Hancom Samsung Office pack, a Samsung Home Fitness subscription (to learn dance, pilates, and yoga), and a 3-month subscription to basic services at The Shilla hotel. Students can also use educational content from Samsung.edu for up to two years.
