Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Will Change the Way You Work

The South Korean company presented the new Samsung Galaxy Book 2, a two-in-one device that is directly inspired by Microsoft’s Surface concept, which means it has a removable keyboard that also acts as a handset with a stylus. The design of the new Book 2 has been working very well for some time in the professional sector and is understandable, as it provides great flexibility and allows the user to enjoy the best of a laptop but with a much more flexible and versatile approach.

However, the new Samsung Galaxy Book 2 makes a quite particular bet because it mounts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 chipset and the Windows 10 ARM, allowing it to offer more autonomy at the cost of a tighter performance.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 – Technical Specifications

These are the specifications that Samsung has confirmed for its new Galaxy Book 2:

  • 12-inch touchscreen with a SuperAMOLED display at a resolution of 2,160 x 1,440 pixels;
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 850;
  • 8-core CPU – four Kryo 300 Gold cores at 2.96 GHz and four Kryo 300 Silver cores at 1.7 GHz;
  • GPU Adreno 630 compatible with Vulkan and DirectX 12;
  • 4 GB of RAM;
  • 128 GB of storage capacity;
  • Rear and front cameras of 8 MP and 5 MP, respectively;
  • Two USB Type-C connectors, microSD slot, WiFi AC, Snapdragon modem X20 LTE 4G 1 Gbps;
  • Weight – 840 grams;
  • Up to 20 hours of autonomy per battery charge;
  • Fingerprint reader;
  • Operating system: Windows 10 in S mode;
  • Includes removable keyboard and stylus;

Installing Windows 10 in S mode means that Samsung Galaxy Book 2 only allows you to install applications from the official Microsoft store, an essential limitation, but which has advantages regarding security and performance. We can, however, bypass this mode via Update and Security -> Activation -> Switch to Windows 10 Home or Switch to Windows 10 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 is a two-in-one device that’s designed for professionals who need to prioritize mobility over performance but focuses primarily on creatives, artists, and designers.
