New Samsung Galaxy Book Windows 10 tablet in the works
First announced in late 2017, the ARM-based Windows 10 mobile devices created quite the controversy regarding the lack of performance compared to Intel-based devices. This year, a few more major companies jumped on the ARM-based Windows 10 bandwagon, promising to improve performance and user experience. Among the new advocates for Windows-on-ARM devices is Samsung, which apparently is hard at work on a new Windows 10 tablet.
The Windows-on-ARM devices will be part of the Galaxy Book series, and the latest Russian ECC approval committee papers prove that the device has already been given the green light for mass production. According to the Russian certifications, the Galaxy Book tablet will come in 2 variants codenamed SM-W737 and SM-W738.
Unfortunately, there are no spec details unveiled by the Russian authorities, but judging by last year’s model specs, the new Galaxy Book is most likely getting an 4G LTE modem, since Microsoft is pushing for Always-Connected PCs. Also, the processors used with the new tablets should be ARM-based instead of Intel’s ULVs chips, so the devices are expected to come with Snapdragon 700/800 series. Other features may include a 12-inch 16:9 display, 13 MP rear camera and an updated S-Pen, which should be the same as the one featured with the Note 9.
The new Galaxy Book should be announced this summer, around the same date Note 9 gets the official launch.
