Samsung Announces Galaxy Book for a Powerful, Portable PC Experience
Samsung today announced the Samsung Galaxy Book, stylishly designed tablets with advanced computing technology offering a premium mobile experience. The Galaxy Book is available in 10.6- and 12-inch variations. Both Galaxy Book editions are powered by seventh-generation Intel Core processors for premium, PC-level performance. The 10.6-inch edition comes equipped with 4GB of RAM and a choice of 64GB or 128GB of storage, while the 12-inch model is available in a choice of either 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, or a generous 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage capacity. Both models allow users to add additional storage via microSD card. Samsung’s Galaxy Book 2-in-1 tablet features Windows 10 integration for full PC functionality.
The 12-inch Galaxy Book’s vibrant Super AMOLED display and the 10.6-inch edition’s TFT screen both support 4K video playback and provide ample room to scan documents on the go or binge a favorite TV show. Their long-lasting batteries charge fast, providing up to 10 hours of power for the 10.6-inch model and up to 10.5 hours for the 12-inch, giving users more freedom to be productive and enjoy their content uninterrupted.
One of the Galaxy Book’s most efficient and fun features is its new, multifunctional S Pen, which helps users adopt a more convenient and hands-on approach to their work. The Galaxy Book’s S Pen is the most accurate yet, facilitating precise notes and detailed drawings thanks to its fine, 0.7mm tip, industry-leading sensitivity – recognizing 4,096 levels of pressure – and ability to vary the thickness of its strokes depending on the angle at which it’s tilted.
The S Pen does not require a battery to function. The Galaxy Book also features support for the S Pen’s PDF Annotation function, to help users get more work done on the go, and Adobe Photoshop, to allow creative professionals to enjoy the device’s advanced mobile productivity as well.
The Galaxy Book cover’s ability to prop up the screen at various angles makes it easy to set the Galaxy Book down and get to work anywhere. Each of the three orientation modes – ‘PC’, ‘Easel’ and ‘Note’ – are designed to deliver optimal comfort and usability.
Combining powerful, PC-level performance with the signature convenience of the S Pen, Samsung’s Galaxy Book 2-in-1 device is less of a tablet and more of a highly portable personal computer. Available in black or white, the included keyboard cover is a delight to work with, and comes complete with a large touchpad that offers plenty of room to comfortably maneuver through files or tabs.
