Samsung is working on the successor to the Galaxy Book, a 2-in-1 device which was unveiled last year at MWC 2018 event. The company’s next device called the Surface Book 2 with Windows 10 OS has been spotted on FCC. The original Samsung Galaxy Book was launched in 10.6-inch and 12-inch models and came with S-Pen and inking capabilities.
The FCC listing reveals that the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 is expected to be launched soon. The model number SM-W737 has already made the complete certification rounds and has been spotted on a number of cites ranging from Russia to South Korea to the US.
The FCC listing reveals that the tablet will come with Wi-Fi 802.11 dual-band connectivity, as well as (optional) LTE support. The tablet will run on Windows 10 in S Mode out the box. It was also spotted on Wi-Fi Alliance for yet another mandatory pre-launch authorization.
The demand for convertible devices is on the rise. Apple is also expected to launch an extra-large screen, detachable keyboard, and a creativity-encouraging stylus with its next iPad Pro generation.
It remains to be seen when the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 will be launched. With the FCC listing, the launch should be just around the corner. The upcoming 12-inch Samsung Galaxy Book 2 is expected to be slightly more affordable than its predecessor. There are no reports whether a refreshed edition of the smaller 10.6-inch Galaxy Book will be launched as well.
Convertible devices are easier to use and work around with. No wonder their demand in on the rise. This will make them a tad cheaper too.
And considering that, can the the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 become an alternative to the costlier MacBooks?
But Apple is slated to bring out cost-effective Mac this time. So, watch out the pricing of both brands.
