The latest Galaxy Unpacked event was all about Samsung laptops. The highlight is definitely the debut of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050i in the Samsung Galaxy Book Odyssey gaming laptop.
The Galaxy Book Odyssey system is the first gaming laptop to use the RTX 3050 Ti but will also have an option for the RTX 3050 Max-Q.
The graphics card will be paired up with an 11th-gen Intel processor, as you’d expect, and will have up to 32 GB of DDR4X RAM and up to 1 TB of NVMe SSD storage.
The 1.6-inch laptop also shines in terms of connectivity, with WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 support, 2 USB Type-C charger (one of them for charigng the laptop itself), plus three USB 3.2 ports, HDMI, MicroSD and Ethernet.
Of course, the full package won’t come cheap – it will be available this August starting at $1,399.
If you’re looking for a more affordable Samsung laptop, the company also unveiled at Galaxy Unpacked and two entry-level Galaxy Book laptops.
There’s the Galaxy Book starting at $800 and shipping in the later half of 2021. It comes with a 15.6-inch TFT LCD display, 2 USB-C ports (one of which will recharge the laptop at 65W), two USB-A 3.2 ports, HDMI, a headphone jack, a microSD slot and an optional nano SIM tray.
It starts with Intel Pentium Gold or Celeron processors but it can go up to the 11th-gen i5 or i7 processors and up to 16 GB of RAM.
Then, there’s the Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha starting at $849, which can be yours much sooner, in mid-May, and it’s also a 2-in-1 laptop.
The Flex2 will be available in 13.3-inch or 15.6-inch QLED display models. It also supports up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB storage, so it can handle most office tasks.
