Samsung's Galaxy Book tablet is targeted at business users and comes in two sizes.
(CCM) — Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Book, a new device that will go toe to toe with Microsoft's Surface Pro 4. The tablet PC, unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, comes in 10.6-inch and 12-inch versions, and both are bundled with a detachable keyboard cover with large, tactile keys and an S Pen stylus. Both also run Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system and support LTE connectivity. The company says the Galaxy Book is aimed at professionals looking for a powerful portable device which is lightweight and can transform from a tablet to a notebook easily.
Aside from the different screen sizes, the two Galaxy Book versions sport very different hardware. The smaller device features a traditional TFT LCD screen and an Intel Core m3 processor, while the larger one has a Super AMOLED screen which supports high dynamic range (HDR), powered by a 7th Generation Intel Core i5 processor. Both offer a 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and a 5-megapixel front camera, as well as expandable storage using SSD cards (sold separately). Samsung claims the devices' batteries support about 10 hours of video playback. Samsung has not announced a launch date or pricing for either version.
