Galaxy Book

Hong Kong – June 29, 2017 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. today announced the availability of an all-new Samsung Galaxy Book in 2-in-1 design. Running Windows 10, the new device offers portability as a tablet while at the same time delivers high performance just like a computer. Galaxy Book comes with a revolutionary S Pen and full-sized attachable backlit keyboard for a complete mobile experience. The tablet’s Full HD+ Super AMOLED display provides all that is needed for immersive content viewing. With a magnesium body and USB Type-C and potable charging support, Galaxy Book is easy and comfortable to carry. 

“All Samsung’s innovation is created from a consumer’s perspective, as we hope our products answer to consumer needs,” said Yiyin Zhao, the Vice President and Head of IT and Mobile Communication Business for Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. “Samsung’s latest Galaxy Book has been further enhanced with a powerful S Pen and other accessories. With its supreme screen display, processor, operating System and such, Galaxy Book is surely one of the best 2-in-1 tablets available on the market.” 

Revolutionary S Pen

For a natural writing experience, the S Pen has a smaller 0.7mm tip and is extremely sensitive – it is powered by WACOM’s pressure sensing technology and can differentiate 4096 levels of pressure. The S Pen also feels like an ordinary pen with a width of 9mm and premium coating that gives a good grip. Users can write freely as no charging or pairing is required. 

To start Windows Air Command, simply press the button on S Pen, and users can jot notes using Samsung Notes. The Smart Select function can turn any selected content into JPEG or GIF, after which users can draw or annotate. Users can also draw on the tablet’s screen using Screen Write function to center attention to a particular spot. 

2-in-1 Design

Running on Windows 10, Galaxy Book provides more functions than a usual tablet. Users can choose from various input methods, and enjoy a laptop-like experience when the keyboard cover is attached, or simply use it as a tablet and operate via touch and the S Pen. The backlit keyboard cover has been further improved with taller keycaps and more space in between. Users can quickly and easily attach the keyboard using POGO’s magnetic strip, and set the tablet to stand at 40°, 53° or 60° angles to give the best viewing angle for all sorts of usage. 

Built with 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-7200U Processor and 8GB RAM, Galaxy Book delivers smooth performance in multimedia experience. The new tablet’s support for Fast Charging and charging through USB Type-C and portable chargers make it easy to carry anywhere. When fully charged, the device can be used up to 11 hours. 

Slim, Lightweight and Remarkable Picture Quality

Wearing a Magnesium design, Galaxy Book is not only durable, but also stylish. The 12” Galaxy Book is merely 7.4mm thick and 754g heavy [1] , making it the best to-go companion even with the keyboard cover on. 

Galaxy Book’s stunning Super AMOLED screen offers vivid colors and clear images perfect for both multimedia entertainment and work tasks.

Seamless Connectivity for Mobile Working

Users can connect their phones and other devices to the Galaxy Book for easy data transfer. Samsung Flow allows connection between Galaxy Book and any Galaxy smartphones. The tablet will display notifications from the smartphone, and users can reply directly, surf the internet and access other contents on the tablet.

Galaxy Book is built with 2 USB Type-C ports to enable screen output and connection to different devices. The symmetrical USB Type-C makes wired connections more convenient, while USB3.1 cable [2] speeds up data transfer.
