Galaxy Watch brings the best of the Samsung's Galaxy ecosystem with long-lasting battery life, LTE connectivity, wellness capabilities and a timeless and personalised design.

This camera system delivers a variety of unique features and camera effects which set it apart from other smartphones.

We don't have a United Kingdom price yet, but the Galaxy Book 2 price is $999 in the US.


Software-powered features such as Scene Optimizer and blink detection make it easier for users to take impressive photos, and the device's 24MP front-facing camera makes for great selfies.

Users who purchase the Galaxy Book 2 will also get an S-Pen and keyboard cover.

Where can I buy the Samsung Galaxy Book 2?


The only downside is that it runs Windows 10 S, a slimmed-down version of Microsoft's operating system that can only run applications from the Windows Store that Vole has explicitly approved - including Microsoft Office.

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.

Samsung has launched the latest variant of its flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S4 in India. Sound-wise, it has two speakers tuned by AKG with Dobly Atmos technology. Also, the bundled S Pen comes 4,096 pressure levels and a pen tip of 0.7mm diameter. It's notable that those accessories come in the box, as one of Samsung's primary Windows competitors in this form factor, Microsoft's Surface Pro, sells the pen and keyboard separately. The positive there is that the S Pen seems nearly impossibly light. The pen sticks to the side of the Book 2 with a magnet, which is a bit more elegant than last year's solution of a loop attached to the keyboard. As expected, the Galaxy Tab S4 price in India is considerably higher than the launch price of the Galaxy Tab S3.


The device is marketed as an "always on, always connected PC" just like any other Windows 10 device based on Qualcomm's chips. Like any LTE device, though, using that data plan will incur a monthly fee. The device has advanced usability options with the help of Samsung DeX. The new Tab S4 has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset underneath, clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
