Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Hands-On: A Snapdragon-powered Surface rival

Samsung's latest 2-in-1 tablet gives you freedom to roam for two working days

Samsung's Galaxy Book2 is the newest addition to ARM-PC Family

Samsung has launched the Galaxy Tab S4, its 2-in-1 Android tablet with S Pen and Samsung DeX, in India.

Samsung DeX optimizes the user experience for work situations and gives users what they are looking for in a PC experience i.e windowed apps, keyboard and mouse support.

That makes it taller, thicker and heavier than the Galaxy Tab S3 (which has a smaller 9.7-inch display), and also thicker and heavier (but not as tall or wide) as the iPad Pro 10.5. The tablet flaunts a 10.5-inch display which is a Super AMOLED panel made by the company itself. It has an aspect ratio of 16:10 and a 287 ppi pixel density. One has to wonder, however, how big of a bottleneck the 4GB of RAM will be. The device has fast charging capability.

There are four, AKG-tuned speakers which support Dolby Atmos for a surround sound experience. The primary camera records 2160p video at 30fps. "The Galaxy Book 2 brings together Samsung's hardware and connectivity leadership with innovations from Qualcomm Technologies and Microsoft for a two-in-one that uniquely delivers PC productivity and superior mobility".

The Galaxy Tab S4 offers high-end specifications.

Apple iPhone XR will sell better than the iPhone 8 did past year , claims famed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. There is a 2,942mAh battery under the hood, with a bundled 5W adapter in the box.

There's also no fingerprint scanner or physical home button on the front, but the Tab S4 does come with an Iris Scanner to ensure there is a level of biometric tech on offer. The device has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and a USB Type-C port for connectivity.

In a press release about the new extended payment option, T-Mobile's CEO John Legere pointed out that a family of four can sign up for the T-Mobile Essentials plan and get a new device for $50 per month per line with autopay.

Users who purchase the Galaxy Book 2 will also get an S-Pen and keyboard cover. You don't need a dedicated stand for it but a Dex-powered HDMI cable to simply connect it with a monitor.

Samsung's new Galaxy A9 is available in three colours - Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink. The latest entrant to the market will be exclusive to Amazon in the online market, while it can also be picked up from major offline retail stores in the country. From clipping and magnifying to translating, the S Pen lets you take your creativity to new heights.
