New Samsung app suggests 'Galaxy Book' may be incoming

A new Samsung-made app called Book Settings has popped up at the Windows Store, prompting speculation that an accompanying piece of hardware could be on the cards in the near future. Sammy always makes its presence known at Mobile World Congress, which kicks off later this month in Barcelona, Spain, and with the Book Settings app having just made its presence known, it could be a timely precursor to a new product line for MWC 2017. 

The natural theory would be a Galaxy Book to do battle with the Microsoft-made (and Tim Cook-admired) Surface Book. Samsung already has some competition for Redmond's Surface line with products like the Galaxy TabPro S, and a Galaxy Book would likely cater to those with an affinity to the more traditional notebook form. This is just a theory, of course, but if a Galaxy Book is in the pipeline, next week's Mobile World Congress should offer some clarification.

The Windows Store screenshot of the Book Settings app, as you may see above, reveals few basic features like pattern login, AMOLED display settings, battery life extender and support for digital pen. 

Samsung will be sharing some tablet-related news from February 26th and we'll have all of the details covered right here at PhoneArena, so stay tuned!
