What you need to know

  • Samsung announced the new Galaxy Book Flex 5G.
  • The laptop sports Intel's 11th Gen chips along with a speedy 5G connection.
  • Samsung hasn't provided availability or price information just yet.

Intel's 11th Gen chips are now official, and Samsung is hopping on board with the new Galaxy Book Flex 5G. An update to the original Galaxy Book Flex, the 5G version does just what it says on the tin: it brings 5G mobile connectivity.

The Galaxy Book Flex 5G comes with the option for 11th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, along with up to 16GB of RAM. That also means you get Intel's new Iris Plus Xe graphics, which appear to be quite capable when compared to even some of the lower-end discrete mobile chips from AMD and NVIDIA.

The 13.3-inch 1080p display is a touch panel that can be flipped around as you see fit, thank to the Flex 5G's convertible design. Samsung also includes an S Pen that has a dedicated garage to store it in on the laptop's base. With this iteration, you also get a 13MP rear camera in addition to the 720p front-facing webcam.

The 5G technology included is Sub6, so there's no mmWave here. If you don't have a 5G connection available, there's also LTE and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity on board. Thunderbolt 4 is here as well, as is a theme with Intel's 11th Gen chips. You'll also be able to log in with a built-in fingerprint reader.

There's no word on pricing yet. Likewise, Samsung hasn't provided a release date. However, it's likely we'll learn much more about the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 5G in the coming months.
