Samsung’s answer to Surface Pro 6 is the Snapdragon 850-powered Galaxy Book2

“Samsung Galaxy Book2 price is $999.99 in the US, and specifications include a 12-inch full-HD+ display, 20-hour battery life, and LTE connectivity”

Samsung has launched the Galaxy Book2, a Windows 2-in-1 hybrid, to bring an alternative to the Microsoft Surface 6. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 850 chip for always-connected computers, coupled with 4GB RAM. And while Samsung designers have taken a lot of cues from the latest Microsoft Surface, the accessories with the Galaxy Book2 are bundled in the box so buyers won’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars to purchase them.

The Galaxy Book2 has a 12-inch sAMOLED display panel that offers a resolution of 1,440 x 2,160 pixels and comes preloaded with Windows 10 S Mode. However, you can reportedly switch to full Windows experience for no additional costs. The display leans on the kickstand, much like the Microsoft Surface. As mentioned above, Samsung has bundled with S Pen and the compatible keyboard in the box, unlike its rivals.

On the storage front, the Galaxy Book 2 offers 128GB of internal storage. Camera options include an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The Book 2 comes equipped with 2 x USB Type-C port, microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Thanks to the Snapdragon 850 processor, it also supports Gigabit LTE connectivity. Also present is a fingerprint sensor at the upper right corner for Windows Hello. On the audio front, the Galaxy Book 2 offers Dolby Atmos support and the audio unit is fine-tuned by the AKG.
