Samsung Galaxy Book said to have Windows 10, LTE and S Pen support


Last updated: February 24th, 2017 at 10:40 UTC+01:00

It was reported last week that Samsung might be working on another Windows 10-powered device called the Galaxy Book. The information came from the description of the app called Book Settings which prematurely surfaced on the Windows Store. Some more information about the Galaxy Book is now making the rounds online.

The report mentions that the Galaxy Book is going to be powered by Windows 10 and that it’s going to have LTE and S Pen support. The Galaxy Book is said to support Samsung’s Air Command feature as well. Air Command can be activated by hovering the stylus over the display and clicking the S Pen button. It can also be activated when the S Pen is removed from its holder but it’s yet to be confirmed if the Galaxy Book will have an integrated S Pen holder.

On other devices like the Galaxy Note, the Air Command menu offers features like Smart Select, Samsung Notes and Screen Write so it’s likely going to bring those to the Galaxy Book. The S Pen for this device may also have an eraser just like you get on Microsoft’s Surface Pen. Samsung Galaxy Book is also expected to come with the company’s Smart Dimming feature which will keep the backlight on when a user is looking at the screen, it will use the front camera to detect this.

It’s unclear at this point in time when Samsung intends to launch the Galaxy Book. Perhaps it might unveil it at the Mobile World Congress 2017 later this week where it’s already due to launch the Android-powered Galaxy Tab S3 and the Windows 10-powered Galaxy TabPro S2.
