Although it was leaked back in April, Samsung has now officially announced the small 14-inch Galaxy Book Go, which starts at $349 for the WiFi-only version with Snapdragon 7c SoC.

Measuring 323.9 x 224.8 x 14.9mm and weighing in at 1.38kg, the Samsung Galaxy Book Go is a neat little machine built around a 14-inch FHD 1920x1080 slim-bezel screen with a 180-degree hinge. Bear in mind that it does not feature a touchscreen.

Samsung will have two base versions, the Galaxy Book Go, which comes with Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platform, which comes as a WiFi-only and optional LTE version, as well as the Galaxy Book Go 5G, with more powerful Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform. As far as we can gather, both will be available with 4GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X memory, and 64B or 128GB of eUFS storage.

The rest of the specifications include a 720p webcam, two USB Type-C and two USB 2.0 type-A ports, 3.5mm audio jack, microSD card reader, 802.11ac 2x2 WiFi 5 (WiFi 6 on the Book Go 5G), Bluetooth 5.1, nano-SIM slot on LTE and Go 5G versions, and stereo speakers with Dobly Atmos.

Samsung also equipped the Galaxy Book Go notebooks with a 42.3Wh battery and 25W USB Type-C charger, promising up to 18 hours of average battery life.

“Samsung and Qualcomm Technologies continue to collaborate across multiple generations of leading Samsung devices powered by Snapdragon compute platforms.” said Alex Katouzian, SVP & GM, Mobile, Compute, and Infrastructure, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Our shared vision for mobile computing inspires our companies to push the industry forward and provide a more connected, intelligent and productive experience for consumers. We are proud to enable the Galaxy Book Go series and expand the portfolio of 5G PCs that utilize our cutting-edge technology to deliver what users deserve – across multiple price points.”

“PCs continue to enable our digital lives, helping us connect to our friends and family, work remotely, and find outlets for creativity and relaxation,” said Woncheol Chai, SVP and Head of Experience Planning Team, Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “The Galaxy Book Go series is built for today’s mobile-first users who expect seamless communication, sustained productivity, and immersive entertainment—all in one device. With the new addition to the Galaxy Book, Samsung offers wider options to our consumers to choose a device that best fits their needs.”

Samsung said that at least one version, most likely the Galaxy Book Go, will be available this month, so hopefully, we won't have to wait too long for the more powerful Galaxy Book Go 5G with Snapdragon 8cx.
