It was nearly a month ago when Samsung debuted its Galaxy Book at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Despite the name, the Galaxy Book is not a laptop, but is instead a tablet with a keyboard cover. Today, the firm has released a video that gives the world a more formal introduction to its latest Windows 10 device.
There isn't much information in the video about the actual product, but it does show us the beauty of it. Although short, you can watch the Galaxy Book come to shape in under a minute's time. If you're unfamiliar, the Book will arrive in two different sizes, a 10.6-inch and 12-inch variant. While the two have similar looks, it's the 12-inch model that will get the more powerful features, like an i5 processor and Super AMOLED display. You can check out the full specifications below.
