A few weeks ago, Samsung presented the Galaxy Book2 Go, a portable computer running Windows that is powered by ARM and features a small and light design. The Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3 is at the heart of this device. Although the chipset is capable of 5G, the first version of the product did not utilize this capability and instead provided only local connectivity. A 5G variant of the laptop was just introduced by the company today.
The Samsung Galaxy Book2 Go 5G is a gadget that supports dual SIM cards and can combine a traditional SIM card with an electronic SIM card (note that only single-standby is supported). The sub-6GHz bands are utilised by the 5G connectivity.
In addition to that, the laptop has the ability to connect to Wi-Fi 6E networks and is familiar with a few cool tricks that can be used if you also have other Galaxy devices. For instance, you can connect to a Samsung Galaxy Tab by utilizing the Second Screen feature, which allows you to do exactly what it says on the box. Additionally, Galaxy Buds have a quick and simple pairing process.
The Galaxy Book2 Go is extremely thin, measuring only 15.5 millimetres thick and weighs 1.44 kilogrammes (0.61 inches, 3.17 pounds). The fact that it has passed the MIL-STD-810H tests for High Temperature, Low Temperature, Thermal Shock, Vibration, Low Pressure, and Humidity does not imply that it is a weakling in any way.
The laptop has a 14-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1080p, and the screen can rotate through 180 degrees thanks to the hinge. In the event that you rely on older Windows applications that do not have an ARM port, it comes pre-installed with Windows 11 Home, which supports x86 applications on both the 32-bit and 64-bit levels.
In the event that you are unfamiliar with the Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3, it is an ARM chip manufactured by Qualcomm that is designed to work in battery-powered Windows devices. It is comparable to the chipsets seen in Android devices in that it was manufactured using a TSMC process that was 6 nanometers in size and contained 8 Kryo cores. In addition to that, there is a FastConnect 6700 system and an X53 modem (Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2).
The wired connectivity consists of a headset combo jack, as well as two USB-C ports and one USB-A 2.0 port. There is a slot for microSD cards as well as a slot for nanoSIM cards. The battery in the laptop has a capacity of 42.3 WH and the power adapter has a rating of 45 WH.
Beginning at the end of January, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Go will be made available for purchase on Samsung.com as well as through certain carriers. At the Unpacked presentation that Samsung will hold on February 1 for the Galaxy S23 smartphones, it is anticipated that Samsung would reveal the Galaxy Book3 series.
