Samsung doesn't want to keep up with the competition. In response to Microsoft's recently released Surface Pro 6, the Korean company released its Galaxy Book 2 tablet with a claimed battery life of up to 20 hours.
The device is based on the concept of "Always-Connected PC" (always-on PC) and is controlled by Windows 10 S. In the classification of electronic technology, the novelty takes a step between laptops and tablets.
The Galaxy Book 2 has much the same hinge mechanism as the Surface Pro. With it, the screen of the device can be positioned almost in the same plane as the keyboard. Additionally, the new Samsung is equipped with a keyboard and a proprietary S Pen stylus. The audio system has a built-in Dolby Atmos surround sound engine.
The device is equipped with a biometric sensor to identify the owner. The new Samsung tablet has the latest generation Snapdragon 850 chipset (the same is built into the previously presented Yoga C630 tablet from Lenovo).
In addition to the modern quad-core Snapdragon 850 chipset (a pair of 2.96 GHz cores, another pair - 1.7 GHz), the Samsung tablet received 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. The screen (2160x1440) with a Super AMOLED matrix supports Full HD + resolution. Also, the tablet is equipped with a front camera with a 5 MP sensor and an 8 MP rear camera, a pair of Type-C connectors, a microSD port.
About S mode
The official characteristics of the new items do not contain a technical indicator of the battery capacity, but Samsung claims that the Galaxy Book 2 tablet can withstand 20 hours of use at a time if the included Windows 10 OS supports S-mode. Windows 10 S belongs to one of the standard ten versions, but has some limitations, including the ability to install additional applications only from the official Microsoft store.
The announced Samsung Galaxy tablet is being implemented on Windows 10, which operates in S Mode by default. According to the Korean manufacturer, device owners can always upgrade to a full-fledged Windows 10 system for free.
