Samsung has launched its newest flagship Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab S4, in India today.

Galaxy Tab S4 sports narrower bezels to fit a 10.5-inch display with Super AMOLED technology, as well as a 16:10 screen ratio.

The biggest complaint about the last generation of Qualcomm-based laptops was that the performance wasn't up to par, so we're looking forward to benchmarking the Galaxy Book 2 and its Snapdragon 850 to see how well it performs.

Yesterday at an event in the New York, Samsung pulled off the wraps from Galaxy Book 2.

On Friday, mobile tipster Ice Universe tweeted that Samsung had presented four innovations at its 2018 OLED Forum on Thursday. There's a new Standalone mode, with which one can enjoy a PC-like interface even without a monitor or the "Book Cover" Keyboard.

That makes it taller, thicker and heavier than the Galaxy Tab S3 (which has a smaller 9.7-inch display), and also thicker and heavier (but not as tall or wide) as the iPad Pro 10.5. Thanks to this SoC and built-in gigabit LTE radio, it allows the Galaxy Book 2 to always stay connected to the internet. In order to increase the productivity, Samsung has also added a keyboard and S Pen. On specifications front, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with 4GB of RAM. The memory can be further expanded up to 400GB via microSD card slot. Adaptive Fast Charging, meanwhile, promises swifter recharging, too.

The device will also utilize Samsung's S Pen, that is included in the box, to take advantage of Windows 10's inking support. On the connectivity front, you get Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Wi-Fi Direct, MIMO, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and a POGO connector. The Galaxy Book 2 will cost $999.99 when it launches on November 2, including in stores at AT&T in the USA with Sprint and Verizon stores to follow later this year. Priced at Rs 57,900, consumers can purchase the tablet PC via Amazon and Samsung Shop, as well as offline retail stores. The speakers are tuned by AKG and support Dolby Atmos for surround sound effect.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 boasts multi-workday battery life, allowing you to spend more time being productive or entertained, and less time searching for an outlet.
