London, United Kingdom- May 29, 2020 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced three premium mobile laptops to launch in the UK starting from next month; Galaxy Book Flex, Galaxy Book Ion and the new Galaxy Book S powered by Intel.
The new Galaxy Book S brings Intel® Core™ processor with Intel® Hybrid Technology and joins the Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex family.

“We have big ambitions for our return to the UK computing market and believe these three innovative devices will complete our stellar Galaxy ecosystem. Combining powerful performance with unparalleled portability, these products meet our customers’ transforming needs and eliminate the process of choosing between mobility and high-performance”, said Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice-President of Samsung UK & Ireland. “As the way we work, play and connect with each other is evolving, it is vital that we offer products that provide our customers with enough flexibility and efficiency to remain productive wherever they are.”
New Laptops with New Innovations – Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion
Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion feature the world’s first QLED Display on a laptop, offering a vivid, true-to-life viewing experience. Outdoor Mode, enabled by a maximum 600-nit display capability, ensures every detail is clear even under bright sunlight.
Both devices make it easy to go cordless thanks to long-lasting batteries and power-conserving displays. Samsung’s industry-leading Wireless PowerShare feature can also charge any of your Qi-compatible smartphones, Galaxy Buds or wearables with the laptop’s touchpad. Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion both exemplify Samsung’s design legacy for an ultra-thin and light device that easily slips into bags and backpacks without the added bulk.
Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion also boast 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors for intelligent performance and stunning entertainment, and Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt™ 3, industry-leading wireless and wired standards for fast, flexible and easy connectivity.
Galaxy Book Flex: A Powerful, Portable, Premium 2-in-1
Galaxy Book Flex is designed for people who need the latest and greatest technology to help them achieve more. Galaxy Book Flex can handle the most demanding tasks thrown at it, from perfecting the latest line of code to sketching the latest artistic creation.
Galaxy Book Flex’s 360-degree hinge lets the user experience the device both as a tablet and a PC. Designed for the road, Galaxy Book Flex sports an aluminum body for added protection with a Royal Blue finish that will turn heads. With the enhanced S Pen’s new gesture controls, you can quickly switch slides in PowerPoint during a presentation, or rewind a video you’re showing to friends using just your hand. What’s more, the optimised S Pen apps provide a powerful writing and drawing experience across the device.
Access to the expansive PENUP community is also available for the first time ever on a laptop, allowing users to easily create and share their favorite sketches. And built-in biometric credentialing, powered by Windows Hello, provides peace of mind even in the most unfamiliar places.
Galaxy Book Ion: An Advanced, Agile, Ultra-Lightweight PC
Galaxy Book Ion was built for the on-the-go professional who isn’t bound to a desk. Made with ultralight magnesium, its clamshell frame and ultrathin design were engineered specifically with portability in mind, measuring just 12.9/14.9mm thick and weighing less than a kilogram. Galaxy Book Ion’s 15.6-inch version comes with an additional SSD and DDDR4 RAM slot, boosting PC performance without adding any bulk. Featuring a luxurious Aura Silver colour, Galaxy Book Ion offers a spectrum of hues at every angle, giving it a premium look to complement its portable design.
Galaxy Book S: An always-on and always capable PC
To improve performance and efficiency, Galaxy Book S features an impressively designed internal component setup powered by its next-generation Intel® Core™ processor with Intel® Hybrid Technology. Galaxy Book S is more efficient, consuming less energy and providing a better performance over longer periods of time. This one-of-a-kind processor intelligently balances high-performing processes during use and conserves battery when not in use, powering your creative, commerce and business programs. With this powerful chipset, Galaxy Book S features a long-lasting battery and offers up to 512GB of storage, so you don’t have to waste time worrying about losing power or running out of space.
Always Ready Connectivity
With Samsung’s New Computing devices, you can enjoy nonstop connectivity wherever you need it. Galaxy Book S features Wi-Fi 6, the next generation of Wi-Fi that empowers efficient, speedy internet without competing for a network connection with other devices.
Design That Works Everywhere
The Galaxy Book S is designed for taking with you and carrying around all day. Lightweight at just 950g and only 11.8mm at its thickest point, the ultra-slim profile means you can slip the Galaxy Book S into a small bag, portfolio or just carry under your arm with ease. A fan-less design allows the Galaxy Book S to be slimmer than traditional laptops and helps it to run noiselessly, even during sustained and intense periods of work. Galaxy Book S features a light clamshell design built with a durable metal body, so you can have the stability you need on a desk or in your lap. If you’re looking to get some fresh air while scrolling, Outdoor Mode on Galaxy Books S will instantly boost brightness to 600 nits using a two-key shortcut. With a bright screen that also supports touch interactions, you will feel more connected to your device than ever and free take advantage of a more seamless and productive working style.
Uninterrupted Device-to-Device Continuity
Galaxy Book devices such as the Galaxy Book S unify the computing experience with seamless connectivity between devices. Thanks to our partnership with Microsoft, you can enjoy your favourite Android operating system on your Windows PC for a seamless and continuous device-to-device experience. With Microsoft’s Your Phone app, you can sync your mobile device to receive notifications, messages, cross-device copy & paste and photo transfer, all on your Galaxy Book S device.
