Samsung Galaxy Book2 goes head-to-head with Microsoft and Google with new 2-in-1

It’s expected to hit stores in November

Today, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Book2 – An Always On Always Connected PC and 2-in-1  that’ll compete against Microsoft’s Surface Pro 6 and Google’s all-new Pixel Slate.

Not to be confused with the Tab S4 or Chromebook Plus, this Windows-powered machine is an ‘always on’, LTE connected device designed to compete against flagship 2-in-1s and laptops, not tablets.

The Galaxy Book2 comes running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 processor with 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, with a battery that’ll last up to 20 hours on a single charge.

Shipping with a dual-function keyboard that doubles as a screen cover and the company’s famed S Pen, Samsung is pitching its new 2-in-1 as an all-encompassing device that furnishes the full power of Window 10 in an ultra-portable form factor. Bolstering its claim is the fact the device measures just 11.3 x 7.9 x .3-inches and weighs less than 2 pounds.

Samsung says we can expect to see the $999 tablet hit Samsung.com, ATT.com, and Microsoft.com early next month, followed by a wider release a few weeks later.
