Samsung’s Galaxy Book Flex 5G is the first 5G laptop with Intel’s 11th-gen processors

Today, Intel announced its 11th-generation processors today, and that means that it's time for partner announcements. Samsung is one of those partners, announcing the Galaxy Book Flex 5G, the first cellular PC with Tiger Lake chips, and the first one to be verified under Intel's new Evo program, formerly only known as Project Athena.

The Galaxy Book Flex 5G is a convertible, which comes with Samsung's S Pen, as you can see in the image above. In fact, it's pretty similar to the existing Galaxy Book Flex in some ways, although obviously with newer processors that have Intel Iris Xe graphics. It has the same 13.3-inch FHD display, up to 16GB RAM, and so on.

It's a bit heavier at 1.26kg, and it's a bit thicker at 13.9-14.9mm. One thing that's been added is a 13MP world-facing camera, and then you can take pictures, annotate them with the S Pen, and share them on the fly with the sub6 5G connection. And yes, the 5G offered on this PC is sub6-only, as is the case with all Intel-powered 5G laptops.

That's about it, as the main changes in the refresh include Intel 11th-generation processors, a world-facing camera, and cellular connectivity. It also has Thunderbolt 4, something that you're going to see with Tiger Lake laptops.

Samsung didn't provide any information as to how much this PC will cost, or where and when you'll be able to buy one.
