A month after the unveiling of the Tab S3, Samsung attempts to bring balance to work and play with their newest product, the Galaxy Book.

The Galaxy Book is the latest member of Samsung’s growing tablet collection and allows users to enjoy the “power of a laptop with the portability of a tablet” all in this “2-in-1 workbook.”


Bea Ignacio, the Product Marketing Manager for Samsung’s tablets, highlighted the Galaxy Book’s five main features in the product’s media launch on Friday.

“First, is it’s a Windows 10 device. Second, is it is powered by a brand new second-generation Intel Core Processor. Third, is its enhanced keyboard. Fourth, is its light and compact metal design. Fifth is its advanced S Pen,” Ignacio said.


The device runs on a 7th Generation Intel Core m3 Processor and a Windows 10 operating system. It comes with pre-installed Microsoft Office Suite and a full keyboard case for “easier productivity.”

Despite having a 10.6 inch screen with a 1920×1280 resolution, the latest Samsung tablet innovation highlighted its light and compact, all-metal body that weighs at 648 g and is only 8.99 mm thin.

Compared to its Galaxy TabProS predecessor with a Bluetooth C-pen, the Galaxy Book comes with an advanced 0.7 mm S Pen with a high-pressure sensitivity that gives users a “realistic writing experience.”

The unit sports 4GB of RAM, 128GB internal memory, 5MP front-only camera, and 9 hours stand-by battery. It also supports fast charge, a USB-C port connectivity, and has an expandable memory via microSD.

The Samsung Galaxy Book is priced at Php 44,990 and is available in the market starting Saturday, July 29.
