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

Even when you're not using it, this Samsung 2-in-1 PC continues to sync and refresh in the background so you get the most up-to-date notifications when you return. More controversially, perhaps, Samsung has dumped Intel's silicon for Qualcomm's ARM-based Snapdragon 850 chipset. At up to 20 hours, it's nearly double the first Galaxy Book. Samsung will be selling the Galaxy Book 2 from November onwards for USD999 (~RM4,158).

Battery life is reported good for up to 20 hours between charges, depending on how it's used, with fast charging meaning you won't have to spend too long tied to a wall outlet. Notably, Samsung says this battery life is with Windows 10 in S Mode. One can connect the tablet to an external display through an HDMI to USB Type-C multi-port adapter and use it as a full-fledged PC. The speakers are tuned by AKG and support Dolby Atmos for surround sound effect.

Microsoft a few weeks ago unveiled its brand new Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 models, but these aren't the only new Windows 10 toys in town.

The tablet was first launched before the Galaxy Note 9 in August.


Galaxy Tab S4 sports narrower bezels to fit a 10.5-inch display with Super AMOLED technology, as well as a 16:10 screen ratio.

A busy life needs a device that can keep up, and the Samsung Galaxy Book2 delivers almost everything needed for on-the-go PC users. The back is a mix of magnesium and aluminum (only on the kickstand) but in a matching finish that keeps things looking uniform.

Here's everything you need to know about the Galaxy Book 2 including its release date, price and specs.

As for the accessories, the Keyboard Book Cover, Book Cover and the Pogo Charging Dock will cost you Rs 7,499, Rs 3,999 and Rs 3,499 respectively. Thanks to this SoC and built-in gigabit LTE radio, it allows the Galaxy Book 2 to always stay connected to the internet.
