Via Samsung

When was the last time you took a look at what is going on in the laptop market? In a world of high-flying technology getting better and better at a rapid pace, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the newest developments. That’s why it’s pretty interesting to see one of the world’s top tech companies re-entering the Canadian laptop market. We all know we can get comfortable with what we’ve got, but just because we’re used to something doesn’t mean it’s the right choice. We’re pumped to see Samsung reentering the laptop space with the exciting new Galaxy Book Series. They prove the world of PCs has come a long way since the days of bulky 20-pound monitors that took up half of your parent’s computer room. So, let’s get at it and take a look at ‘em!

Samsung has just released the latest in its line of industry-leading Galaxy devices. The Galaxy Book Series takes everything that people around the world love about Galaxy devices and adds that and more to the Galaxy Book experience. We’re talking laptops with vivid, colour display experiences even outdoors, Sound by AKG, S Pen capabilities on the Galaxy Flex that allow you to draw and edit right on the screen, and Wireless PowerShare1 on the Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion, just for starters. Sounds pretty solid, doesn’t it?

All of the new Galaxy Book Series come with features Canadians want in a powerful laptop. And to make it easier for you to find the Galaxy Book that’s right for you, we’ve broken down the offerings below.

GALAXY BOOK ION

Let’s first take a look at the Galaxy Book Ion, which comes in Aura Silver and is available in 13.3 inches or 15.6 inches. The best way to describe this incredible PC is as a “cinema experience on-the-go.” Its innovative QLED Display takes movie-watching and designing on the laptop to an entirely new level.  You can stream, browse and experience crisp, clear detail with up to 100% Colour Volume2, allowing you to watch your favourite content and flex your creativity with confidence. Thanks to Quantum Dot technology, your display will be vivid even if you decide to switch things up by taking your Galaxy Book Ion outside.

Speaking of taking things outside, or even from the office to the couch, the Galaxy Book Ion features an incredibly slim design that makes it easy to take your work day or favourite show on-the-go with you. Plus, the battery on the Galaxy Book Ion lasts up to 22 hours3 on the 13.3-inch version, and up to 21 hours4 on the 15.6-inch version, meaning you don’t have to constantly worry about being near a power outlet. The Galaxy Book Ion also includes Wireless PowerShare5 so you can easily charge your Galaxy devices wirelessly through the trackpad using a quick keyboard shortcut – ideal for those times when you don’t have a charger or cable in hand.

Next, the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion can connect seamlessly with your Galaxy ecosystem. That means sharing photos between devices via the “Your Phone” application, using mobile and laptop operating systems at the same time with Samsung DeX – hello, productivity! – and using the SmartThings app to control connected devices in your home is now easier than ever6.

Finally, in addition to Samsung DeX capabilities, this powerhouse of a PC is built to speed up productivity across the board. Equipped with Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 10, the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion features all the familiar programs you know and love.

With fluid multi-tasking combined with a user-friendly interface AND impressive computing power thanks to a formidable 10th generation Intel® Core™ processor, the Galaxy Book Ion is a dream laptop for those looking for an elevated user experience. You can also feel confident that your data is secure thanks to Windows Hello protection with fingerprint or PIN unlocking.

GALAXY BOOK FLEX

Next, let’s take a look at the Galaxy Book Flex. This bad boy isn’t just a beautiful piece of machinery, it’s also a revolutionary 2-in-1 laptop and tablet that has the tools you need for your creative workspace.

Galaxy Book Flex offers up to 20 hours of battery life7 and features split-second responsiveness thanks to a 10th generation Intel® Core™ processor for working, creating, and entertaining all day long.  Poised to turn heads, The Galaxy Book Flex is available in an eye-catching Royal Blue aluminum finish in either 13.3 inches or 15.6 inches.

This gorgeous laptop/tablet combo isn’t just great to look at and fun to use, it also sports enough cutting-edge technology to excite even the savviest tech fans.

For example, the Galaxy Book Flex screen becomes a canvas with a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen, offering a solution for those who prefer to take notes or sketch ideas with precision. S Pen is even able to discern intuitive gestures to start slideshows or adjust the video volume from across the room when presenting ideas or art to friends, family, or colleagues.

Like the other two Galaxy Book Series laptops, the Galaxy Book Flex will allow you to unlock network speeds up to 3 times faster than previous generation WiFi using WiFi 68. This means faster downloads, smoother streaming, and increased productivity.

Plus, Galaxy Book Flex also allows for Samsung DeX connectivity with your Galaxy ecosystem to take your devices to the next level. What more could you want?

Price: starts at $2,199.99 CAD

GALAXY BOOK S

Last, but certainly not least, is the 13.3 inch Galaxy Book S. This featherlight powerhouse is not only ideal for use on-the-go, but also when it comes to storage. With options of 256GB or 512GB of storage space that can expand up to an additional 1TB with the use of a micro SD9, you don’t need to worry about making hard decisions on what files to keep or delete on your Galaxy Book S.

The Galaxy Book S is ready for all your distance learning or working needs thanks to the inclusion of an Intel® Core™ processor with Intel Hybrid Technology. Whether you’re conducting research, downloading materials, uploading files or attending virtual lectures and meetings, the Galaxy Book S is an ideal productivity partner. The best part? Even with all that power you don’t need to worry if you leave your charger at home because the battery lasts up to 17 hours10. The days of scoping out the nearest power outlet will be officially behind you.

Along with that, Wi-Fi 6 capabilities will help keep you more connected than ever before, with network speeds up to 3 times faster than previous generation Wi-Fi11. File transfers are also easier than ever on the Galaxy Book S, thanks to two USB-C ports that allow you to transfer large files quickly to keep your work flowing.

With the “Your Phone” application, you can connect to your mobile devices wirelessly on your Galaxy Book S to check notifications and respond to messages without having to pick up your phone. Thanks to Samsung DeX, you can also take advantage of dual OS usage to leverage both your Galaxy smartphone and Galaxy Book operating systems at once for increased productivity.

Whether you’re aiming to handle presentations, massive spreadsheets, artistic endeavours, or just looking to stream some high-resolution movies, the Galaxy Book S has you covered.
