  • Samsung Galaxy A7

The good news right up front is that Samsung has retained the a 12-inch Super AMOLED panel in the new device. The Book2 is one of the new Always Connected line of PCs, sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile compute processor and fast gigabit LTE connectivity. The company claims that you can work for 20 hours without charging (that is, if you leave Windows 10 in S Mode).

Out of the box, the device runs on Microsoft's Windows S mode for hassle-free usability, but also includes an upgrade path to full Windows when needed down the road. There are only a few ports, though: two USB Type-C ports, a microSD card slot for expanded storage and a headphone jack.

Here's everything you need to know about the Galaxy Book 2 including its release date, price and specs. Sound-wise, it has two speakers tuned by AKG with Dobly Atmos technology.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Samsung had applied for a patent related to an optical in-display fingerprint scanner, suggesting the feature could make its way into next year's Galaxy S10.

Babbar said that 2-in-1 category is growing at the CAGR of 9 percent and expect 31.4 million devices will be sold in India by 2021. The POGO charging dock will be sold separately and costs Rs 3,499.

If you're a business consumer, you could use Galaxy Tab S4 as a portable 2-in-1 device for emails, making presentations, video consumption and more on-the-go, although the device doesn't yet seem to have the capability of replacing traditional laptop. Samsung promises an enhanced S Pen experience with 4,096 pressure levels and a pen tip of 0.7mm diameter.

The device is marketed as an "always on, always connected PC" just like any other Windows 10 device based on Qualcomm's chips.

The $999 Galaxy Book 2 has been announced for the USA only for now, but we expect it to come to the UK. We might see the new technology on other smartphones such as Oppo, Xiaomi, and Apple who outsource their display from Samsung.
