Samsung today introduced Galaxy Book S, a game-changing mobile computing device built for high-performing users who don’t want to be weighed down by excessive size and features of traditional laptops.
With Galaxy Book S, Samsung ushers in a new era of mobile computing with a device that harnesses the mobility and connectivity of a smartphone and the powerful productivity of a PC.
Developed in collaboration with leading technology companies, Galaxy Book S takes Samsung’s position as a mobile leader and unites it with the best-in-class workforce platform powered by Microsoft and industry-leading mobile performance from Qualcomm. This new category device offers Gigabit LTE connectivity, instant-on capabilities, and a premium design, powered by Windows 10 and the cutting-edge Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 8cx compute platform.
Ultra-fast Gigabit LTE adds a virtually constant connection to the cloud, providing high-speed access to applications and content without relying on WiFi.
Building on the Galaxy Book, Galaxy Book S was thoughtfully designed to deliver a powerful computing experience within a lightweight and sturdy mobile form factor.
Designed to stand out with its unique arched frame that flows when opened and closed, the portable, ultra-slim design lets you take full advantage of its always-on capabilities. Galaxy Book S goes where you go, easily and comfortably – without the unnecessary weight and bulk of a full-sized laptop at only 0.96 kg.
Built with a premium anodized aluminum frame on the top and base, Galaxy Book S is protected against hazards that can typically damage a laptop and strengthened by the anodization process on the outer layer. Galaxy Book S’ 13.3-inch display comes with 10-point multi-touch, allowing you to scroll, zoom and control the device, with a touch of a finger.
The Galaxy Book S offers uncompromising performance-powered by the Snapdragon 8cx compute platform; the world’s first 7 nanometer PC platform created for mobile computing by Qualcomm Technologies.
The Snapdragon 8cx elevates Galaxy Book S above the Galaxy Book2, with 40 percent greater CPU performance, 80 percent greater graphics performance and added memory bandwidth. The Snapdragon 8cx, purposefully designed to be fan-less, also ensures that your laptop will remain cool no matter how hard you’re working.
Untether yourself from the charging cable with Galaxy Book S’ long-lasting battery life that can power up to 23 hours of continuous video playback with only one charge. The Galaxy Book S also features up to 1TB of expandable storage, so you don’t have to worry about running out of space.
Galaxy Book S also includes Samsung’s studio-quality Sound by AKG stereo speakers, while Dolby Atmos® elevates and refines the immersive audio experience with tailored sound modes for movies, music, games and more.
Enjoy a complete PC experience on a new mobile computing device that offers uncompromised mobility and next-generation performance with Windows 10.
Microsoft’s Your Phone app provides a seamless connection between Galaxy Book S and Galaxy Note10 so you can access your most recent photos, apps, and notifications, and instantly respond to calls and texts between devices, making sure your day is friction-free. The Galaxy Book S also features Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage, which keeps your files protected, backed up and accessible across your devices.
With Galaxy Book S, your device is more secure and protected. With its Gigabit LTE connectivity, the Galaxy Book S allows you to avoid unreliable public networks, ensuring that your private information isn’t put at risk when accessing the internet. Windows Hello provides instant sign-on capabilities with your fingerprint, ensuring quick and convenient access to your device in a more personal way.
The Galaxy Book S will be available in two shades, Earthy Gold and Mercury Gray, beginning this fall in select markets.
