When it comes to working on-the-go, the new Samsung Galaxy Book2 is packed with features for easy, convenient productivity. Powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform, it boasts a sleek 2-in-1 design that makes it a mobile powerhouse and offers multi-workday battery life, the security of Windows 10, and seamless integration with other Samsung devices through Samsung Flow.

Just like a smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 instantly starts up and is ready to go. It’s Always On, Always Connected capability helps you edit a video, finalize and send off that client presentation, or just catch up on your favorite show. With an immersive 12-inch Super AMOLED and true-to-life audio made possible by speakers tuned by AKG with Dolby Atmos, it’s all possible.

Multi-workday battery life

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 boasts multi-workday battery life, allowing you to spend more time being productive or entertained, and less time searching for an outlet. With up to 20 hours of video playback*, you can even stream longer than before.

Then, when you finally run out of battery after hours of uninterrupted work or play, you can simply power back up quickly with Adaptive Fast Charging.

Always connected

No Wi-Fi? No problem. The Samsung Galaxy Book2 is always connected with Gigabit LTE**. The integrated Snapdragon X20 LTE modem supports download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps and upload speeds of up to 150Mbps, so you can stay productive in almost any location. In congested or poor cellular network conditions while you’re on-the-go? With Gigabit LTE, you can expect up to 70 percent greater connectivity speeds than a device without it. 

Plus, with Instant On, your device is always on, connected, and ready for you. Even when you’re not using it, this Samsung 2-in-1 PC continues to sync and refresh in the background so you get the most up-to-date notifications when you return.

The accessories you need

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 comes with the extras you need right in the box. Switch from touch to type with the backlit keyboard that connects on contact and adjusts to you. And with the precise, pressure-responsive S Pen, you can create and navigate with ease. From clipping and magnifying to translating, the S Pen lets you take your creativity to new heights. Both included accessories come at no additional cost (unlike with other devices).

A busy life needs a device that can keep up, and the Samsung Galaxy Book2 delivers nearly everything needed for on-the-go PC users. Powered by Snapdragon, it has the connectivity and battery life to keep you going virtually all day long.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 will be available at AT&T, Microsoft stores and Samsung.com for $999.99 starting November 2, 2018, and will be available at Sprint and Verizon later this month.
