Due to distribution issues in the UK, we will no longer be listing the Galaxy Book range.
Samsung Galaxy Book 12 (SIM Free/UK)
Choosing a new computer has always been tough. In recent years, the rise of smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks and all-in-ones has made decisions even harder!
For a large proportion of us that require a full desktop experience, Windows is still the OS of choice. Of course, the modern world has trained us to want as much power as possible in a small, lightweight and touch-ready device.
The Galaxy Book range for 2017 is aiming squarely at mobile professionals and students with high workloads. Choosing either a 10.6" or this 12" model, a full desktop Windows 10 experience is installed, alongside a detachable keyboard with trackpad and the productivity enhancing S-Pen.
SIM Free / Unlocked UK Stock
If you choose the Cellular model then Clove will provide a fully SIM Free and factory unlocked device. This uses a Nano SIM card and is compatible with all UK & European GSM, 3G and 4G/LTE data networks.
For LTE compatibility outside of Europe, please check the specifications with your network operator.
If purchasing a cellular / LTE enabled version for use outside of the EU, you may wish to read the information regarding the international region lock on new Samsung stock - please refer to the end of this description*.

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 12 runs a full desktop version of Windows 10, powered by a new 7th Generation (Kaby Lake) Intel processor. This Core-i5 dual-core 3.1 GHz chip is versatile and powerful enough to run a full office suite and mid-range editing programs.
Also included is Samsung's S-Pen stylus. Seen before on the Samsung's Note range smartphones, the S-Pen can determine, up to, 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.
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 12" model Galaxy Book weighs in at well under 800 grams so is easy to carry in a bag or satchel, or rest 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.
Super AMOLED technology is one of Samsung's crowning achievements. Used across the top-tier Galaxy range and by many other OEM device makers, the screens offer incredible brightness, contrast ratios and power efficiency.
Samsung is also incorporating HDR (10-bit colour) technology for extra-vivid imagery.
A 12-inch panel is just the right size to browse, type and watch entertainment comfortably on the move while remaining portable.
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.
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 2 new USB Type-C connectors for attaching peripherals and other recent smart devices.
If you need to use a camera on the tablet then the Galaxy Book offers a high resolution 13 MP module with autofocus on the back for traditional photos. A 5 MP front-facing camera can also handle 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.
