Samsung has used its Galaxy Note 10 unveiling to launch its new ‘mobile computing device’, the ‘Galaxy Book S’ – merging the “connectivity of a smartphone” with the “productivity of a PC.”

Weighing a super-lightweight 960 grams, the device offers an alternative to bulky laptops, enhancing portability.

The Galaxy Book S will launch in the US next month, with Samsung Australia offering pricing and availability announcements closer to local launch.

The product seeks to leverage Samsung’s mobile communications expertise with a workforce platform from Microsoft and Qualcomm.

The Galaxy Book S is an “always-on, always-connected and always-capable” device, with ultra-fast gigabit LTE offering “virtually constant” connection to the cloud, without relying on Wi-Fi.

Unlike traditional laptops, Samsung boasts “booting up is a thing of the past” for the new Galaxy Book S.

Reflecting Samsung’s renewed relationship with Microsoft, the Galaxy Book S features Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage, for backed up data across all devices.

The product also incorporates AKG stereo speakers alongside Dolby Atmos.
