CES 2020 only starts next week, but several companies have already started announcing new products before the event. One such company is Samsung with its new hybrid Galaxy Book Flex alpha notebook. Being a hybrid, it can be used as a tablet and as a notebook.
Manufacturer bets on the quality of three-dimensional sound to get attention
The company's new hybrid notebook is very similar to the original Galaxy Book Flex released in 2019, which had 13-inch and 15-inch screen versions. One difference is that the new model does not feature Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
The Galaxy Book Flex alpha features a 13.3-inch QLED display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, comes with a 10th generation Intel Core processor (Comet Lake) and integrated Intel UHD Graphics video.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) support, a Type-C USB connector, two USB 3.0 ports, and an HDMI port. It also features a microSD card slot. About the design itself, the Galaxy Book Flex alpha has an aluminum body, backlit keyboard, 13.9mm thickness and weighs only 1.19kg.
