Another strategy of the company is to offer different versions of processors to achieve a more economical base model and in fact, this version starts with a price that is almost half of the first model.

Samsung maintains the screen size at 13.3 inches and the 360-degree hinge system. As for the internal hardware, Samsung offers two configurations with Intel Comet Lake processors and different amount of RAM and storage:
