The Galaxy Book 2 also runs Windows 10 with S Mode enabled, so you can upgrade to the full version of Windows for free. Samsung DeX can be operated onto Galaxy Tab S4 through an HDMI port, that connects a foldable Book Cover keyboard onto the device. One has to wonder, however, how big of a bottleneck the 4GB of RAM will be. There's an 8MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, a microSD slot, and two USB Type-C slots. Including Dolby Atmos and speakers tuned by AKG for true-to-life audio quality. But it's surrounded by a rather thick bezel that mars the experience slightly. Samsung will be selling the Galaxy Book 2 from November onwards for USD999 (~RM4,158).
Samsung has also included a number of flagship features in its Galaxy A9 device, such as its Infinity Display, Bixby assistant, and support for Samsung Pay.
However, as much as Samsung is highlighting the computing-like functionality of its new slate, it's an undeniable fact that the chipset onboard is dated. The style options include three new watch faces in Silver, Midnight Black and Rose Gold, and new customisable watch band colors. As expected, the Galaxy Tab S4 price in India is considerably higher than the launch price of the Galaxy Tab S3. The positive there is that the S Pen seems nearly impossibly light. Even when you're not using it, this Samsung 2-in-1 PC continues to sync and refresh in the background so you get the most up-to-date notifications when you return.
Accessory-wise, the PC comes with an S Pen and keyboard periphery bundled together with purchase. And pressing the button on the S Pen when near the display activates Samsung's excellent Air Command software. What Samsung is doing differently on the Galaxy Book 2 is going for super long battery life (with claims of up to 20 hours on a charge), always-on connectivity via built-in LTE, and actually including the system's keyboard and pen in the box at no extra charge. Notably, the LTE variant has been launched in India, and not the Wi-Fi only variant. Today, we get the second-generation Galaxy Book2, and it sees a switch away from Intel.
The Windows Store is improving all the time, but there are many apps which are still missing.
