Samsung Launches Galaxy Book 2; Features Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 And Gigabit LTE

Samsung Launches Galaxy Book 2; Features Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 And Gigabit LTE

There's also fast charging as you'd expect and the 4G LTE connectivity comes courtesy of Qualcomm's also new X20 modem.

As the latest member of the "Always Connected" PC ranks, the Galaxy Book 2 runs Windows 10 S out of the box, although users can upgrade to the full-fat version of Microsoft's OS. The Galaxy Book 2 has been priced at $1000 (approx Rs 73,500) and will be available in stores in the United States later this month.

There's a 12-inch, 2,160 x 1,440 resolution AMOLED display out front, backed up in the audio department by AKG-tuned stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 will be available online at ATT.com, Microsoft.com, and Samsung.com for $999.99 starting November 2, 2018. Samsung claims that the Galaxy Book2 will last up to 20 hours on single charge.

Speaking at the event, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Samsung Electronics America, Alanna Cotton "The way the world works is undergoing an incredible transformation, and users need technology that keeps them connected and ready for anything when they're out in the world getting things done." . Those devices use the older Snapdragon 835 chipset though, compared to the Galaxy Book 2's Snapdragon 850.

Previous iterations of the Galaxy Book, or Samsung Windows tablets like it, went against the trend of kickstand designs in lieu of ones that rely more on the keyboard for its various modes of use. In order to increase the productivity, Samsung has also added a keyboard and S Pen.

In connectivity, it supports WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 2.4+5GHz, VHT80 MIMO, USB Type-C x2, microSD and 3.5mm jack.

With each passing day and new 2-in-1 reveal, it seems PC manufacturers inch closer in making their flawless Surface Pro clone, however, it looks like Samsung may have just nailed their version as they release renders of its Galaxy Book2.

Around back, there's an 8-MP rear camera next to the Galaxy Book 2's fingerprint reader, which seems to me like a bit of an awkward location.
