Samsung's Snapdragon 850-powered Galaxy Book2, and Chromebook Plus, now available

Today, Samsung announced that its Galaxy Book2 Windows 10 tablet and its Chromebook Plus are now available for purchase. Both devices come with 4G LTE connectivity.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 is one of the first Windows 10 devices to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 processor. That means that it comes with a Snapdragon X20 4G LTE modem, so it supports speeds of up to 1.2Gbps. Alongside that, it has a 12-inch 1440x2160 Super AMOLED display, and it ships with the S Pen and attachable keyboard. Make sure to check out our review before you pick one up.

The Chromebook Plus has a 12.2-inch 1920x1200 LED display, and it's powered by an Intel Celeron 3965Y processor. The 4G LTE modem that Samsung included is the Fibocom L850-GL, which offers Cat 9 LTE speeds, or up to 450Mbps. In fairness, most carriers don't support gigabit speeds in most markets anyway. The Chromebook Plus is a convertible laptop, and it also comes with a pen.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 is available today for $999.99 from AT&T, Microsoft, and Samsung, and it will be available from Verizon and Sprint later this month. The Chromebook Plus is available today for $599.99 from Verizon, Best Buy, and Samsung.
