Samsung’s Galaxy Book Competes With Microsoft Surface Pro 4


People were expecting Samsung to unveil the Samsung S8, a worthy successor to the Samsung S7. Instead, the brand went ahead and unveiled two tablets, which were as impressive as the phone they were expected to launch.

The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 is a rather surprising addition to the predominantly Android tablet range, as this new tablet is operated by Windows 10. The Tab Pro S2 is being dubbed to be a direct competitor to Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4.

The Galaxy Book 10.6 and the Galaxy Book 12 was released at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress 2017 held in Barcelona. Samsung has gone all-out with Tablets as each one is equipped with top-notch specifications and features and will probably prove to be the perfect competitor for the Apple iPad pro and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4.


The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 has a light weight design, similar to the previous TabPro S. The 7.4 mm aluminium body device includes the detachable keyboard weight, and comes with an S Pen stylus. The 12” AMOLED Display will have a resolution of 2166X1440 which will create a stunning user experience. Powered by Intel HD graphics, you are sure to have an amazing viewing experience as well as gaming experience. However, it’s not for hard-core gamers, but your games will run smoothly.

The 12”-inch tablet/laptop will house an Intel Core i5-7200U (7th-gen Kaby Lake) – 3.1GHz and an 8GB LPDDR3 RAM, which will handle anything you throw at it with style. In the case of the ten-inch variant, the 2.6 GHz dual-core Intel 7th Gen M3 processor will not disappoint you. Also, the 4GB RAM, will ensure that all your tasks run smoothly.


A 2-in-1 tablet is not known for camera specifications, but the TabPro S2 will be surely known for it. However, users who wish to have a good camera in a tablet, the Galaxy TabPro S2 is the perfect partner. The tablet features a 13 MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, which is perfect for video chatting purposes, whether for business or personal.

Storage and battery

The 12-inch model comes in two variants, the basic 128 GB and a 256 GB variant; whereas the 10.6 inch variant will be available in 64 GB and 128 GB. Both models have enough room for you to store your favourite things. This model has multiple ports which are created to house a MicroSD card, 2 USB ports which are compatible with a Type C device. In addition, the 5070 mAH battery will make sure you enough time to complete your work and if the battery drains out, the 25w Turbo charger will have it working in no time.

If these specs don’t have you running to the nearest store, we have more, the TabPro S2 also comes equipped with Bluetooth 4.1, 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/AC Wi-Fi, LTE (optional). However, the brand hasn’t officially stated a release date or price. So you will have to wait and watch.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
