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

With each passing day and new 2-in-1 reveal, it seems PC manufacturers inch closer in making their flawless Surface Pro clone, however, it looks like Samsung may have just nailed their version as they release renders of its Galaxy Book2.

The Snapdragon 850 is at the heart of the Galaxy Book2, which also has a 12-inch 2160x1440 Super AMOLED touchscreen, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The Galaxy Book 2 packs Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850 chip that's been designed specifically for Windows 10 devices, and features LTE support. Another striking difference is that it comes with Windows 10 S out of the gate, signal the wump wump's.

Samsung hasn't mentioned Bluetooth, but there is 802.11ac Wi-Fi and cabled connectivity shapes up as two USB-C ports.

Battery life is also a highlight of always-on devices, and the Galaxy Book 2 will get up to 20 hours of life per charge, according to Samsung.

He said that as per market research firm GfK, Samsung's share in the top end tablet PC market was 29 percent. The device becomes available on November 2nd and can be purchased at AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon stores.

Once again the S Pen and the keyboard case are included. The device has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and a USB Type-C port for connectivity. Further, Samsung will be selling Keyboard Book Cover for Rs 7,499, though the simple Book Cover is priced at Rs 3,999. Samsung has reportedly ordered 6.66-inches panels for the Galaxy Note 10 form Samsung Display.

The new Galaxy Tab S4 also supports DeX without the need for a dock, Samsung has the functionality built-in this time around. Like any LTE device, though, using that data plan will incur a monthly fee. We will check Samsung's claim in our full review, but here are my initial impressions of the device.

The $999 Galaxy Book 2 has been announced for the United States only for now, but we expect it to come to the UK.
