    You're sure it will be only 1080 pixels?
    I can't find the information.
    4k would make it the perfect mobile solution for me!

    "Ultra-portable" and "ultra-powerful".
    Pick one. What utter marketing goop.

    There's a specs table all the way at the bottom of this page. Only 1080p screens are listed, hopefully more configurations to come.

    I got to briefly play with a pre-release Ion. The build quality was superb, possibly Samsungs best yet. They told us that Ion was focused on maximum mobility in all ways including battery life and thus no 4k screen option.

    PS: I asked about the MIA Book S and a Book 2 successor. The answer on the book S was "very soon". Unknown on a book 2 successor.

    OK... Thanks.
    So it shouldn't be that different than the Notebook pro pen.
    The high resolution of the galaxy book is so nice. It would be great to have a light 15.6" with good resolution to draw on.

    Because (I think) LG holds the OLED patent and Samsung holds the Q-LED patent. So for now Samsung would rather develop their Q-LED, and in a year or two launch Q-OLED, for which they also hold the patent, and which is superior to OLED.

    Welp, the Flex is here.
    I wish they'd make an AMD version, although AMD aren't really trying at all in the low power segment.
