This new device shares much with the original, with a convertible form factor, a 13.3-inch Full HD QLED touchscreen display, and 10th-generation Intel processors. The screen also supports an active style, as in the previous model, but does not come with an S Pen.
Galaxy Book Flex Alpha weighs 1.19 pounds, while Galaxy Book Flex weighs 1.1 kg. The Book Ion has a starting weight of 0.9 kg (1.1 kg for the 15-inch model). The thickness of the Alpha model is 13.9 mm, while the weight of the other two laptops is 12.9 mm.
To make it at a lower sales price, Samsung also had to make some compromises on the Flex Alpha model. Available is a smaller 54Whr battery (compared to 69.7 Whr on the other two laptops). The graphics processor is also limited and uses the Intel UHD option. Also, the maximum storage space is up to 512 GB SSD, while the RAM options go up to 12 GB.
