MWC 2017: Samsung Announces Galaxy Book, Windows 10 Tablet Hybrid

0Share

Announced at Mobile World Congress 2017, Samsung’s new Galaxy Book is a Windows 10 tablet hybrid that’s designed to deliver productivity on the go. It’s lightweight and can be used as a tablet or laptop, allowing users to do more than if they had just one type of device. Available in two versions, a 10.6 or 12" model, the Galaxy Book can be equipped with up to a 7th-Gen Intel® Core™ i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB solid-state drive with additional room, thanks to its microSD card slot.

More importantly, the Galaxy Book comes with a detachable keyboard and an S Pen, which adds to its value and accessibility, right out of the box. Much in the way Apple’s iMessage syncs across Apple devices, Samsung is also including its Flow Software, which does the same thing for Samsung Galaxy Devices to help users who own multiples. Currently, there are no pricing and availability details available; however, we do have a list of their projected specs.
