Samsung launched a bunch of new laptops including a gaming laptop during the latest Galaxy Unpacked event. One product that did not make it to the event was Galaxy Book Go. Yet, the device has leaked in full along with the information regarding its pricing. In this post, we will be taking a look at the specs, key features, and pricing of the yet-unannounced Samsung Galaxy Book Go.
Samsung Galaxy Book Go Rumors:
This device is different than the latest Galaxy Book lineup as it powered by an ARM processor. According to the leaks, it packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c chip with a maximum clock frequency of 2.5GHz. The current version of the chipset is based on an 8nm process and has a maximum clock speed of up to 2.4GHz. Thus, the 2.5GHz speed could be a result of refinement in the manufacturing process or a mistake altogether.
