Samsung Galaxy Book to be an LTE Windows 10 tablet with stylus pen


Besides getting ready to announce the Android-based Galaxy Tab S3 (which will be officially presented at MWC 2017 on February 26), Samsung is seemingly also working on a brand new Windows tablet.

As reported earlier this week, the upcoming Windows slate might be called Samsung Galaxy Book, and should feature an AMOLED display, in addition to support for a stylus pen. These details have been revealed via a Book Settings app that's currently available on the Windows Store. Thanks to the same app, more information about the new tablet has come to light today.

Reportedly, the Galaxy Book will have LTE connectivity, and its stylus should work just like the S Pen of a Galaxy Note smartphone. The stylus will let you activate Air Command, which opens up various features, including Screen write, Smart Select, and S Notes.

The AMOLED display of the Galaxy Book might be a 10.2-inch one (of unknown resolution). If that's the case, the device will be smaller than Samsung's previous Windows-based tablet - the 12-inch Galaxy TabPro S from early 2016.

Right now, it's not clear when the Samsung Galaxy Book will be announced. Anyway, this could be a very interesting tablet, so we're looking forward to hearing more about it.

Any Surface competitor is always better than those Macbook wannabees.

They should revive the OMNIA brand for Windows products.
