The new convertible comes in 10.6-inch and 12-inch sizes, both powered by Kaby Lake processors and using a fanless design, capable of providing up to 10 hours of autonomy on a single charge.

Samsung Galaxy Book is now official, as anticipated by the latest rumors that mentioned it. This Windows convertible comes in two sizes, both using Intel processors from the Kaby Lake lineup. Since the chips used by Samsung are low power parts, the Galaxy Book has a fanless design.

These are the highlights of the two Galaxy Book convertible variants:

  • Samsung Galaxy Book 10.6 - Intel Core m3, 4 GB/64 GB or 4 GB/128 GB, full HD TFT, 5 MP front, 10.3X7.1X0.35 inches, 1.4 pounds 
  • Samsung Galaxy Book 12 - Intel Core i5 Y-series, 4 GB/128 GB or 8 GB/256 GB, 2,160X1,440-pixel Super AMOLED, 5 MP front, 13 MP rear, 11.5X7.9X0.3 inches, 1.7 pounds

In addition to the above, both models come with Windows 10, detachable keyboards, S Pen input with 4,096 pressure levels, fast charging support, USB Type-C connectivity, and optional 4G LTE.

For now, there is no information about the pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy Book, but we will keep you posted.

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.
