Samsung is known to release a fresh batch of laptops coinciding with the latest Windows launch, and just like clockwork, the Korean giant has let slip its plans for this year’s Windows 11 release as well. Most of them make their way to the US market, and this fresh leak is all about a Samsung notebook that looks to be a successor of one of the most appealing ultraportable thin and light 2-in-1 notebooks to hit the US market. We’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha, a top-of-the-line laptop with a QLED display aimed at business executives on the move.
LaptopUnderBudget spotted the successor of the Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha on the FCC database, which routinely verifies the wireless components of devices slated to launch in the US market. The FCC listing reveals a certain Samsung notebook PC with the model number NP750TDA has passed the certification tests and is ready to be launched in the US market.
Why are we saying this is a successor to the Galaxy Flex2 Alpha?
The model number is a dead giveaway. The current Samsung Galaxy Flex2 Alpha has the model number NP730QDA, and the Samsung notebook PC revealed in the FCC listing carries the model number NP750TDA. See a pattern? It’s very likely that 750TDA is the direct successor to the 730QDA. Now we are not privy to Samsung’s naming schemes, and we are only taking an educated guess here, but there’s strong circumstantial evidence pointing to this being a successor.
So, what to expect from the successor?
The NP750TDA, likely called the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 3 Alpha, could be the next-generation flagship laptop from the Korean Chaebol. If that is the case, we’re in for a hell of a ride. The Flex2 Alpha is already one of the thinnest and lightest 13-inch laptops around, and we can only expect Samsung to make it even better.
However, the FCC listing doesn’t reveal anything about the features or specifications of the laptop. Except that it will come loaded with Windows 11. But, considering how the previous Flex2 Alpha came with the top-of-the-line Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, we can assume it to be powered by one of the newer Core i7-1195G7, with a cheaper Core i5-1155G7 option.
To recall, the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha sports a 13.3-inch Full HD QLED display that can be rotated 360° to convert into a tablet. It runs on the Intel Core i7-1165G7 coupled with 16GB LPDDR4X RAM and 512GB PCIe SSD storage. There’s integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics and a 3530mAh battery. Samsung claims a whopping 18.5 hours of battery life on the Flex2 Alpha, and at just 13.99mm thin and 4.19lbs light, it’s one of the lightest laptops available in the US. It features a full-sized spill-resistant keyboard with two USB 3.0 Type-A and one USB 3.0 Type-C. You get a fingerprint sensor for biometric security, and it tops up using a 40W charger.
The QLED display is definitely the biggest pull of the laptop, and there’s a high possibility that Samsung will continue with the display tech and probably make it even brighter and more color-accurate. It’s already quite bright with 400-nits peak brightness, and we can expect things like HDR certification and validated color accuracy. There’s also expectedly going to be a performance upgrade with new Intel Tiger Lake-refresh chips, and Samsung may attempt to shrink it to an even thinner and lighter profile.
Whatever be the case, we will be keeping our eyes peeled for more information about this upcoming laptop. Let us know what you think of this leak in the comments.
