South Korean giant Samsung showed its ambitious intentions in the Mobile World Congress 2017. By revealing the Galaxy Book and Galaxy Tab S3, the company is set to represent a huge threat to major tech companies like Apple and Microsoft. Nevertheless, the unusual case in this event was that Samsung didn't unveil any mobile device.
The Galaxy Book Will Arrive In Two Versions
What seems interesting about these products is that the Galaxy Book will come in two versions, which represent Samsung´s high-end business-focused answer to the Surface. These versions are called Galaxy Book 10 and Galaxy Book 12, and the greatest detail is that both run the Windows 10 operating system, while the screens come in at 10.6in and 12in respectively, with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1280. Also, the Galaxy Book 10 has a regular TFT panel, while the Galaxy Book 12 is treated to a Super AMOLED display that includes HDR.
Another incredible detail is that the Galaxy Book 10 is powered by the Intel Core i3 processor with a 2.6GHz clock speed and an incredible 4GB of RAM, with storage options of 64GB and 128GB, including a microSD card slot that can be increased up to 256GB. On its part, the Galaxy Book 12 has a 3.1GHz Core i7 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and an outstanding 256GB of storage.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Could Be iPad´s Worst Nightmare
On the other hand, the Galaxy Tab S3 uses the Android 7.0 Nougat, and its screen size is 9.7in, with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 that supports HDR in order to offer brighter and more vivid colors. This Samsung´s tablet is powered by the quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, including a micro SD card slot that is expandable to 256GB.
Although the Galaxy Tab S3 and the Galaxy Book series raised a lot of expectations, Samsung didn't provide any information regarding its prices or the release date. Also, another disappointing detail about Samsung´s event at the Mobile World Congress is that for the first the time since 2013, the company didn't unveil any Galaxy S smartphone, but instead, a new mobile device was briefly teased at the end of its presentation.
