Samsung launched on Wednesday (7) the Galaxy Book S, which according to the company itself, “takes advantage of the mobility and connectivity of a smartphone and the powerful productivity of a PC”. The device supports 4G networks and offers up to 23 hours of battery life.
The manufacturer claims that the Galaxy Book S plays videos uninterruptedly during this period because of its 42 watt-hour battery (Wh). In order not to rely on Wi-Fi networks, the notebook uses a Nano SIM card.
It features a 13.3-inch touch screen with Full HD resolution, anodized aluminum finish and weighs just 960 grams. There is also a fingerprint reader and a lighting sensor that turns the keyboard lights on and off automatically.
The Galaxy Book S uses the Snapdragon 8cx processor, launched in December by Qualcomm. According to Samsung, compared to the Galaxy Book 2, presented in 2018, the CPU performance is 40% better and the graphics performance is 80% better.
The device has 8 GB of RAM and will be sold in versions of 256 GB and 512 GB of storage. It supports microSD cards with up to 1 TB of storage. The notebook also has a USB-C port and comes standard with Windows 10.
Available in the United States from September, the Galaxy Book S will be sold in silver and gold for as little as $ 999 (approximately R $ 3,965). There is still no information on when it will be released in Brazil.
