Samsung Galaxy Book stars in "official launch film"

Samsung Galaxy Book stars in
Announced at MWC 2017 alongside the Galaxy Tab S3, the Samsung Galaxy Book is an Intel-based Windows 10 tablet that comes in two versions (10.6 inches and 12 inches), both featuring Samsung's signature S Pen stylus.

While the Galaxy Tab S3 is already available to order, there is no official word on when the Galaxy Book will be released. Nevertheless, Samsung today posted an "official launch film" of the tablet (embedded below). Most likely, this means that the device should hit shelves in the near future.

The launch film shows, in a simplified manner, how a Galaxy Book is born - from an initial sheet of aluminum to the powerful mobile computer that can help users every day.

The Galaxy Book 12 and Galaxy Book 10.6 will be available in Wi-Fi-only and Wi-Fi + LTE flavors, with keyboard covers and S Pen styluses included at no extra charge. Unfortunately, for now, we don't know how much these new Samsung tablets will cost, though we don't really expect them to be cheap (especially if we're talking about the 12-inch model, which offers higher-end specs).

Garbage. Just buy a Surface, instead of this junk.

The Surface has a 3:2 screen ratio which is ideal for productivity. The height of a 12" 3:2 screen is roughly the same as the height of a 13.3" 16:10 screen.

16:10 is great for productivity. I love my macbook for that reason. 3:2 is kind of awkward. Wacom is the best stylus interface as well. So i can't say i agree that surface is the best.

There's a different when you are using a tablet and a laptop, on a MacBook or any other laptops, you essentially multitask by opening multiple windows on the same desktop and navigate precisely with a mouse, but it's not the same for tablets, that's why even Apple didn't drop the 4:3 ratio for their so called "Pro" tablets.

The Galaxy book also has a 3:2 ratio.

I don't know where you've got that from. 3:2 might be preferred by some people but it's in no way 'ideal'. I'll avoid all those square screens and go for proper widescreen every time. 16:10 would be best for me but I'd settle for 16:9 if I had to.

The screen alone is worth a look.

I have a Microsoft Surface 3 and the thing I wish it had, more than anything, is a Samsung SAMOLED display.

Yo, the kickass SAMOLED display is best in business.

Surface is overpriced(on purpose to keep oems happy) and MS constantly has issues requiring firmware updates. It takes MS a year to get any of their products right. Every time something new comes out, a year later all the problems are finally resolved. Same thing happened with my lumia 950xl. Samsung makes pretty good quality stuff and they are great at design.

Microsoft Surface book, Huawei Mate book, now Samsung Galaxy book. PCs aren't that exciting anymore.

if you can't tell the differences between the devices you mentioned, then you truly know nothing about PCs right now.... I've been a fan of smartphones and their tech for a long while... but right now i am utterly bored with current phone's offerings... on the other hand i have been very excited by the PC market... My Surface Book is an engineering marvel and the tech inside has more innovation than whats being shown anywhere else...

Honestly, I could see Ryzen+Vega APUs taking a huge cut of Intel's dominance Also there's rumors of Intel releasing CPUs with AMD iGPUs, which is also a big improvement Will be interesting to see how Intel responds to Ryzen, and how Nvidia responds to Intel/AMD's better iGPUs

Hopefully this won't be as ridiculously expensive as the surface.....

Samsung isn't particularly know to price cheap on it's flagship devices.

Galaxy Book will be better than Surface Book for the very simple reason it uses proper Wacom stylus not NTrig battery pen. The aspect ratio for both is the best 3:2. Widescreen are just for watching videos, are awkward to hold and type on, and do not have the vertical height for productivity. Unfortunately, I expect Samsung to overprice Galaxy Book severely which will stall the sales.
