Samsung Galaxy Book S has abandoned ARM processor and switched to Intel

1 min read

In August of this year, Samsung released the Galaxy Book S, an always-on Windows 10 laptop based on Qualcomm processors. Currently, we have some latest news about the Galaxy Book S. The Galaxy Book S is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx processor with a battery life of 23 hours, LTE connectivity, 8GB of RAM and 256 GB or 512GB of storage, and up to 1TB of expandable storage, weighing just 0.96kg.

The notebook was originally expected to be available in September, but until November, the only new ARM notebook we can find on the market is the Surface Pro X, and there is no information about when the Galaxy Book S will be released.

Also at the end of October, Intel announced the Galaxy Book S with Lakefield processor: “Our partnership with Samsung opens the door to bring PC and mobile innovation together in entirely new ways. Samsung’s first Project Athena-verified laptops and the new Galaxy Book S with our Lakefield processor are great examples of the work we are doing together, but they are only the first of many achievements yet to come.”

Given that the Surface Pro X with Qualcomm’s Opteron processor has been sprayed, Samsung’s decision is definitely much better than the ARM version of the Galaxy Book S.
