Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Go is updated with Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3 chipset

After introducing a new version of the Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 laptop with a more powerful processor (Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3), Samsung has launched the Galaxy Book 2 Go with a newer chipset. This ARM-based Windows laptop follows last year’s Galaxy Book Go and brings a newer and more powerful Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3.

Galaxy Book 2 Go with Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3 has 40% faster CPU, 35% faster GPU.

Samsung claims that the Galaxy Book 2 Go is a compact yet powerful laptop. It is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3 chipset, which has a 40% faster processor and 35% more powerful GPU compared to the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 used in the Galaxy Book Go. The new chipset also brings faster wireless connectivity features, including Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2. It also supports faster LPDDR4X RAM (3200MHz) and storage (NVMe SSD). Qualcomm also claims that it offers improved AI processing, but doesn’t go into detail on the metrics.

This new chipset is manufactured by TSMC on its 6nm node, which means it’s also quite power efficient. It helps laptops last longer on a single charge, and Samsung claims the Galaxy Book 2 Go can last all day or up to 21 hours for video playback. Although the chipset has 5G, Samsung has disabled it on the Wi-Fi only variant of the Galaxy Book 2 Go. The company may launch the Galaxy Book 2 Go 5G this year. It runs Windows 11 and comes with Galaxy ecosystem features such as Galaxy Buds Auto Switch, Link To Windows, Multi Control (a Galaxy tablet), Quick Share, Samsung Notes and Second Screen.

Other features of the Galaxy Book 2 Go include a 14-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD resolution and a 180-degree hinge. It appears to have a keyboard-less layout, a large trackpad, and a webcam. Samsung hasn’t revealed the RAM, storage and battery capacity of its new laptop. It’s built to the MIL-STD-810G standard, which means it’s resistant to drops, extreme temperatures, moisture, shocks, and vibrations. It is 15.5 mm thin and weighs 1.44 kg.

The Galaxy Book 2 Go will be available for purchase in France exclusively through starting January 20, 2023.
