Microsoft Windows 10 fans get a new laptop from Samsung
Windows 10 users are about to get a shiny new laptop to play with.
Samsung has just announced the launch of its “game-changing” new Galaxy Book S which arrives with some pretty impressive features including the ability to always stay connected to the web via Ultra-fast Gigabit LTE.
That technology means even when you’re away from Wi-Fi this computer will be able to stay online and download files at superfast speeds.
Along with that connectivity, there’s also the power of Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8cx compute platform.
Samsung says that Snapdragon 8cx elevates the Galaxy Book S above the Galaxy Book 2, with 40 per cent greater CPU performance, 80 per cent greater graphics performance and added memory bandwidth.
The Snapdragon 8cx, is also designed to be fan-less which means it will stay cool whilst being almost silent.
Another bonus of this chip is its incredible efficiency with Samsung boasting that users could experience up to 23 hours of battery life on a single charge.
Other features include a 13.3-inch 10-point multi-touch display, touch-to-wake capabilities which instantly switches things on and stereo speakers which have been tuned by AKG.
If design is something that’s important to you then you’ll find the Galaxy Book S is made from a lightweight and sturdy anodised aluminium frame with the device weighing less than 1KG.
