Ahead of its big Galaxy event scheduled for February 1st, Samsung also announced a rather interesting laptop in the UK, the Galaxy Book2 Go 5G, powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3 compute platform.

To be available by the end of this month, at least in the UK, the Galaxy Book2 Go is a rather interesting 14-inch laptop, just 15.5mm (0.61") thick and weighing just 1.44kg (3.17lbs). It comes with a 14-inch IPS LCD screen with 1920x1080 resolution and has a 180-degree hinge for the screen, which is a nice touch.

As noted, it runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 7c+ Gen3 SoC, a 6nm chip with eight Kryo cores and Adreno GPU, and features Snapdragon X53 5G modem and Qualcomm's FastConnect 6700 connectivity for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2. Back when it was announced, Snapdragon 7c+ Gen3 was said to offer 60 percent higher multi-threaded CPU performance and 70 percent higher GPU performance, compared to the Snapdragon 7c Gen2.

The rest of the connectivity options include two USB-C and one USB 2.0 port, headphones/mic jack, and a microSD card slot.

The Galaxy Book2 Go will run on Windows 11 and comes with both physical SIM and eSIM, as well as a 42.3Whr battery, which should give it a decent battery life.

Samsung also included several Galaxy unique features, like the ability to use a Galaxy Tab as a secondary screen or switch to Galaxy Buds for audio and more. It also features Samsung Quick Share and more.

The Galaxy Book2 Go will be coming by the end of this month in a couple of different options, including the 4GB/128GB WiFi-only model for £499, 4GB/128GB 5G model for £649, and 8GB/256GB 5G model for £749. Samsung did not reveal details about the global availability.

In case you missed it, Samsung is expected to unveil the new Galaxy Book3 series at the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1st.
