Samsung Galaxy Book 2: Release date, price and specs

Samsung on Thursday announced its second generation Galaxy Book, a Windows-powered 2-in-1 that looks an terrible lot like Microsoft's latest Surface device.

Yes, it is Book2, not Book 2, and the always-connected PC features a Snapdragon 850 under the 12in 2160×1440 display, with 4GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, two USB-C ports, microSD. The Book2 is one of the new Always Connected line of PCs, sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile compute processor and fast gigabit LTE connectivity.

Galaxy Watch brings the best of the Samsung's Galaxy ecosystem with long-lasting battery life, LTE connectivity, wellness capabilities and a timeless and personalised design.

The Galaxy Tab S4 runs Samsung Experience UI based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

The combination of Qualcomm's chip and Windows 10 S allows Samsung to claim up to 20 hours of battery life. Sound-wise, it has two speakers tuned by AKG with Dobly Atmos technology.

Samsung has reportedly revealed that the new Galaxy S10 smartphone will come with a notch-free display. The POGO charging dock will be sold separately and costs Rs 3,499.

We don't have a United Kingdom price yet, but the Galaxy Book 2 price is $999 in the US. The device has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and a USB Type-C port for connectivity. Later next month you'll also find it in stores at Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T.

Again, we'll have to wait for United Kingdom information but in the U.S. you can buy the device online at AT&T, Microsoft and Samsung from the above release date. The S Pen is a large stylus and it can be also used as a trackpad.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 comes with the extras you need right in the box. Additionally, some apps didn't work well without the proper drivers (I attempted to install VPN software to no avail), so I'm looking forward to using Samsung's new slate and seeing how well Windows performance and software compatibility has improved.
