Next generation laptop features Windows 10 integration for full PC functionality and a host of other advancements, including a refined S Pen and enhanced keyboard

London, UK – June 5, 2017 – Samsung Electronics today announced that the new Galaxy Book, the next generation of PC, is now available to pre-order in the UK. Combining powerful, PC-level performance with the exceptional functionality of the enhanced S Pen and keyboard, Samsung’s Galaxy Book is the ultimate device for work and play. 

Available in 12-inch and 10.6-inch models, the Samsung Galaxy Book caters to those always on-the-go, who are looking for a powerful computing device that isn’t tied to the desktop. The Samsung Galaxy Book is lightweight and has a versatile form factor, offering users a productive and portable PC powerhouse, allowing them to maximise their efficiency wherever and whenever they wish.

In addition, the vibrant Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy Book 12-inch and the 10.6-inch edition’s TFT screen both support 4K video playback and provide ample room to scan documents on the go thanks to the expandable storage*, or enjoy film marathons anywhere and at any time. What’s more, the Galaxy Book 12-inch offers instant access to HDR original videos, through content partners like Amazon, to provide true-to-life colours and vivid digital content.  

For PC-level performance, the Galaxy Book 12-inch is equipped with a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Dual Core 3.1GHz and the 10.6-inch with an Intel® Core™ m3 processor, Dual core 2.6GHz, giving users enhanced computing power for work and play. 

Built on the Windows 10 operating system, the Galaxy Book offers the full desktop Microsoft Office experience** for maximum productivity. It also features a keyboard that is larger and more tactile with incurved keys and a large touchpad so users can comfortably type just as they would on a traditional computing device and easily manoeuvre through files or tabs. The keyboard is also easily connected via POGO pins, eliminating the need to pair or change.  

The Galaxy Book delivers on Samsung’s legacy of innovative Galaxy technology, including:

  • PC-Level Performance: As well as lightning fast processors, the Galaxy Book features more power efficiency with extended battery life and fast-charge capabilities, supporting up to 11 hours of video playback on the Samsung Galaxy Book (12-inch) and up to 10 hours of power on the 10.6-inch model.
  • Samsung Flow: Samsung Flow syncs with your Samsung Galaxy smartphone to receive notifications and transfer data as seamlessly as possible. It even lets you start something on a different compatible device, then pause and pick it up again from the same place on your Galaxy Book. 
  • Advanced S Pen: For a natural writing experience, the S Pen has a smaller 0.7mm tip and increased pressure sensitivity. The S Pen also includes convenient features such as Samsung Notes, which consolidates the S Pen’s notetaking, drawing and image-management capabilities in one simple application. Other handy S Pen tools include Air Command functions, such as Smart Select, which lets users create, save and share their own animated GIFs, and Screen Write, enabling users to capture, edit and write memos on screenshots.

Prices for the new Galaxy Book start from £649***. UK consumers can pre-order the Galaxy Book through Samsung’s online store from the 2nd June 2017. The Galaxy Book will launch in the UK on the 16th June 2017.
