If you’re planning to upgrade your 2-in-1 soon, Microsoft and HP are offering some of the best products. The late 2018 launch of the Surface Pro 6 and the Envy Spectre Folio deliver premium quality and performance. Google wants to grab a piece of the pie as well with the Pixel Slate, but ChromeOS might not be everyone’s cup of tea. While it might look like a heated battle between the Palo Alto-based manufacturer and the Redmond tech giant, another competitor jumps into the mix–the Samsung Galaxy Book 2.
It appears the South Korean consumer electronics company might be riding on the success of its Galaxy Tab S4. However, when it comes to Windows-based platforms, it’s an entirely different ball game. The aforementioned device along with the likes of the iPad Pro is a great portable alternative to notebooks. However, their performance is normally not up to par for serious productivity. With that in mind, the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 will not be replacing your laptop anytime soon. Yet, its spec sheet appears ideal for those who don’t really need the extra computing horsepower.
We have to honestly point out that the 12-inch super AMOLED display is stunning. The screen technology is known for its vibrant colors and deep blacks. Packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 chipset with 4GB of RAM, the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 will be running on Windows 10 S. This combination of power-friendly components allows the 2-in-1 to deliver up to 20 hours of battery life. The $999.99 retail package reportedly includes an S Pen and keyboard cover.Learn more from Samsung
