The tablet is powered by an older Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

"With the long-lasting battery in the Galaxy Book 2, you can work uninterrupted for up to 20 hour - more than two full work days", Samsung swoons in its announcement. The device has fast charging capability. Sound-wise, it has two speakers tuned by AKG with Dobly Atmos technology. In addition, there is a 13MP autofocus rear camera and an 8MP front-facing camera for selfie shots and video calling. They ran Windows 10 using Intel chips and shipped with an S Pen in the box to offer a very lightweight and flexible machine for travel. The company claims that this is defence-grade security and all critical information is protected through multiple layers of security. Thanks to this SoC and built-in gigabit LTE radio, it allows the Galaxy Book 2 to always stay connected to the internet. Moving to Samsung DeX, it is the first tablet that utilises this feature.

Samsung also announced several offers for those who want to buy the flagship tablet.
