Samsung Galaxy Book Flex and Ion pre-orders go live in Korea tomorrow


Last updated: December 12th, 2019 at 14:32 UTC+02:00

The wait for the world’s first QLED-equipped laptops is nearly over, as Samsung’s Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion are set to become available for pre-order this Friday – December 13 – at least in South Korea.

Both laptop models were unveiled in late October at SDC 2019, and they were both developed as part of Intel’s Project Athena program to ensure good performance, battery life, and the inclusion of various premium features such as Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3.

Wireless PowerShare make these laptops a great fit for Galaxy smartphone owners

As we’ve mentioned in our Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion hands-on, both of these brand new products incorporate Wireless PowerShare for the first time in the history of laptops. Essentially, both laptops are equipped with a trackpad that doubles as a wireless charging pad for Qi-compatible devices.

The Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion have common DNA and share a lot of features and specifications including QLED display technology, but they are also quite different in some areas such as design. The Galaxy Book Flex is a 2-in-1 laptop featuring a 360-degree hinge, whereas the Book Ion retains a conventional laptop form factor. Likewise, the Book Flex comes with the same kind of S Pen that you would find on the Galaxy Note 10 smartphone series, while the Book Ion lacks this feature altogether.

As per a report by The Korea Herald, the 2-in-1 model will launch in South Korea for the starting price of 1.75 million won ($1,470) and can go as high as 2.92 million won ($2,457). Its sibling will be priced between 1.47 and 2.59 million won ($1,240 – $2,180).

Galaxy Book Flex and Book Ion pre-orders will commence tomorrow and Samsung will begin shipping the products on December 20. Other markets should follow a similar launch schedule and start selling the two QLED laptops before the end of the year.
