The Galaxy Book will initially come in two flavors, a 12-inch model and a 10-incher.
The larger model packs a 12-inch AMOLED HDR display operating at a resolution of 2,160 x 1,440 that’s powered by an Intel Kaby Lake i5 processor, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of solid-state storage in a chassis that measures just 7.4mm thick.
It’ll also support the new S Pen (as will the smaller model) which offers 4,096 levels of pressure and a 0.7mm tip, includes a 39-watt hour battery that’s good for around 10 hours of usage between charges and the option for an LTE radio in addition to Wi-Fi. There’s also a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel shooter up front.
The smaller model, meanwhile, gets a standard 10.6-inch full HD LCD panel, an Intel Core M3 processor, 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of eMMC storage. A single 5-megapixel camera handles video chat duties while the 30.4-watt hour battery is also good for 10 hours of uptime. Although smaller, the 10-inch version is a bit chunkier with a thickness of 8.9mm.
Both machines run Windows 10, are expandable via microSD card slot and offer USB Type-C connectivity (one port on the smaller system, two on the 12-incher) and fast-charging features. The keyboard docks feature improved key travel and a larger trackpad, we’re told.
Pricing and availability aren’t yet known.
