Throughout this year’s SDC (Samsung Developer Conference), the enterprise introduced two new notebook lineups – the Galaxy Book Flex and the Galaxy Book Ion. Every comes in two flavors – 13″ and 15″ and they all share a couple of popular standout capabilities.
Initially and foremost, the Flex and the Ion have QLED Complete HD (1920 x 1080px) displays and while Samsung claims these are the initially QLED displays on the marketplace, there are some earlier implementations of the tech in the laptop marketplace. AU Optronics has been generating Quantum Dot panels for pretty some time now and they can be discovered in early Acer Predator gaming laptop iterations.
Nevertheless, these QLED panels appear superior as they have a peak brightness of 600 nits, which is downright impressive. The 13-inch and 15-inch screens on the Galaxy Book Flex and Ion appear appropriate even for outside use.
