Overview

The Galaxy Book has been developed to become the new PC for a modern generation of Windows users. This is a smart and capable device that carefully balances the line between productivity, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Galaxy Book 10.6 runs a full desktop version of Windows 10, powered by the new 7th Generation (Kaby Lake) Intel processor. This Core-m3 dual-core 2.6 GHz chip is versatile and powerful enough to run a full office suite.

Also included is Samsung's S-Pen stylus. Seen before on Samsung's Note range of smartphones, the S-Pen can determine over 4,000 levels of pressure sensitivity and has a superfine 0.7mm tip for pinpoint accuracy on screen. S Pen is passive and does not require charging.

Not only is Windows 10 built with touch input in mind, Samsung has also developed their own productivity apps for Windows 10 to help you make the most out of the S-Pen as a daily tool.

Design

Samsung has employed their respected design and manufacturing to create a sleek tablet that looks every part a high-end Galaxy device.

Galaxy Book's fascia is modest, with a decent-sized bezel providing room to grip without obstructing the screen. The edges and corners curve elegantly and are manufactured from a metallic material which is easy on the eye.

Slim and lightweight, the 10.6" model Galaxy Book weighs in at well under 700 grams so is easy to carry in a bag or satchel, or rest on your lap when working during a commute. The keyboard cover dock doubles as a media stand to provide the option to type on a flat or elevated surface.

Display

Keen to tread the line between portability and productivity, the 10.6" panel on this Galaxy Book makes for an easily held and carried device, that you can still get some serious work done on when required.

This size is also just right for extended browsing or watching movies/shows comfortably during a commute.

The 3:2 aspect ratio offers the best use of screen space at this size, providing more vertical scrolling space in landscape than the standard 16:9 monitor.

Connectivity

Galaxy Book has a full suite of connectivity options. High speed (b/g/n/ac) Wi-Fi is available so you can make the most amount out of downloads and file transfers on a secure network.

If you opt for the Cellular version then you can add a Nano SIM card for mobile data on the move at 4G / LTE speeds.

GPS & Bluetooth are included, alongside 1 new USB Type-C connector for attaching peripherals and other recent smart devices.

Imaging

The smaller of the two Galaxy Book models, this 10.6" version does not feature a main camera on the rear. There is still a decent 5 MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.

*Since September 2013, Samsung has implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only has access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.

For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.

Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.

Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.

If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.

**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.

IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
