A few months after being spotted on the website of the Russian certification authority EEC, the next-gen Samsung Galaxy Book finally arrives at the well-known FCC. Earlier this month, the device also received the approval of the South Korean National Radio Research Agency and the Wi-Fi Alliance.

Those who were waiting for a new Windows-driven convertible tablet to show up will soon be able to get the new Samsung Galaxy Book, which will probably hit the market as the Samsung Galaxy Book 2. This portable has just reached its final certification stages since the whole process began quite a few months ago when the Galaxy Book 2 surfaced on the Russian EEC website. Earlier this month, it also arrived at the Wi-Fi Alliance and the South Korean National Radio Research Agency. Now, the time has come for the FCC to welcome Samsung's next-gen convertible.

The FCC ID of the upcoming Galaxy Book is A3L SMW737NO. The aforementioned EEC listing mentioned a device with the model number SM-W737, as well as an SM-W738 and various regional variants. By putting these two pieces together, we can conclude that the US market will get the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 SM-W737 and some other parts of the world will get the SM-W738.

As usual, the problem with this FCC listing is that it lacks most technical details one would like to know. In this case, what we can tell is that the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 features 4G LTE connectivity and WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band. 

For now, there is no official launch date or pricing to talk about, but we expect to see the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 on the market just in time for the holiday season at least in a few key markets.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
