Samsung's latest 2-in-1 tablet gives you freedom to roam for two working days

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 will be available online at,, and for $999.99 starting November 2, 2018.

"We have launched Galaxy Tab S4 in premium category because we want to bridge the gap between work and productivity.We are planning to double our business in the flagship end of the market in this quarter in B2C", Samsung India, mobile business, general manager, Aditya Babbar told PTI. The screen is now bigger at 10.5-inches compared to 9.7-inch display.

Accessory-wise, the PC comes with an S Pen and keyboard periphery bundled together with purchase. In the dual mode, you can connect the tablet to a bigger monitor. Samsung claims that the Galaxy Book2 will last up to 20 hours on single charge.

However, as much as Samsung is highlighting the computing-like functionality of its new slate, it's an undeniable fact that the chipset onboard is dated. As the name suggests, the 10.5-inch tablet succeeds the Galaxy Tab S3 and brings tons of new additions in terms of software features and hardware. Samsung is also bundling the keyboard cover and the S Pen along with the device for consumers. All of them support AKG as well as Dolby Atmos audio that guarantees a range of sounds in a surround sound experience.

However, as with most Windows 10 S devices, an option to switch to full Windows 10 will still be available.

What are the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 specs? And with the precise, pressure-responsive S Pen, you can create and navigate easily. And the back side of the stylus serves as an eraser, one of my favorite features of Microsoft's Surface Pen (every Windows stylus should do this). And pressing the button on the S Pen when near the display activates Samsung's excellent Air Command software. There's a SIM card slot on the left side of the device, but Samsung told me there's no eSIM compatibility. The Galaxy Book 2 is a Surface Pro 6 rival and this time comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 instead of Intel. It also provides support for Samsung Dex, allowing users to pair a traditional Bluetooth mouse and an Note 9 like expansive windows like experience using a USB to HDMI converter.
