Samsung has announced the Galaxy Book, a.k.a. the most powerful Galaxy device earlier today, though that’s somewhat of a broad statement given the wide variety of Galaxy Book configurations that have been revealed today.

At best, the Galaxy Book can be equipped with a CPU as powerful as the 11th Gen Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3, but the same notebook will also be offered with a more budget-conscious Intel Pentium Gold or Intel Celeron processor under the hood.

Graphics performance will vary depending on the CPU and / or whether or not the notebook has an on-board or a dedicated GPU. The Intel i5 and i7 models will ship with an Intel Iris Xe GPU, whereas the Intel i3 / Pentium Gold / Celeron processors will offer Intel UHD Graphics. Samsung will also sell a variant with a dedicated GeForce MX450 graphics chip.

Galaxy Book specifications preview

The Galaxy Book will be available with 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 512GB of built-in NVMe SSD storage.

The display is of the TFT LCD variety. It has a 15.6-inch diagonal and an FHD (1920 by 1080) resolution. The components are powered by a 54Wh battery and the notebook ships with a 65W USB-C Super Charger.

Other specs include LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, Dolby Atmos, a 720p camera, dual array microphones, and a fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button. Port-wise, the Galaxy Book has two USB-C and two USB 3.2 connectors, one HDMI port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD card slot.

All of these components are wrapped in a body that weighs about 1.55Kg and measures 356.6 x 229.1 x 15.4mm. Samsung will sell the Galaxy Book in two color options: Mystic Blue and Mystic Silver. The Galaxy Book will be available from May 14 for the starting price of $549.
