Samsung today announced the Galaxy Book2 (sic; the company has not put a space between the word and the number), a 2-in-1 tablet running Windows 10, powered by a Snapdragon 850 processor. The Galaxy Book 2 packs Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850 chip that's been designed specifically for Windows 10 devices, and features LTE support. Notably, Samsung says this battery life is with Windows 10 in S Mode.

The Galaxy Tab S4 runs Samsung Experience UI based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

The mobile PC also sports an 8MP rear and 5MP front camera, two USB-C ports, and a microSD slot.

She is now with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Australia and overseeing the massive police operation that surrounds them. Harry and his American former actress wife will attend the opening and closing games ceremonies.

Currently, Samsung makes its own Exynos chipsets, but they use ARM GPUs, so this gaming phone could be where Samsung first tests its own GPU.

According to the release, Book 2 will be an always on and always connected PC that "gives you the power to stay ahead of the game in a world that never slows down". The speakers are tuned by AKG and support Dolby Atmos for surround sound effect.

The whole package including the tablet, S Pen stylus, and keyboard costs $999.99, and it'll be available online from AT&T, Microsoft, and Samsung on November 2nd. The device has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and a USB Type-C port for connectivity. Customers will have to buy Keyboard Book Cover separately for Rs 7,499, which acts as a protective cover, and adds a physical QWERTY keyboard for easy typing. The Galaxy Book 2 will cost $999.99 when it launches on November 2, including in stores at AT&T in the US with Sprint and Verizon stores to follow later this year. The latter is a plastic, elongated version of Samsung's S Pen.
