Today Samsung has made the Galaxy Book2 official. The device aims to make productivity even better by delivering more multitasking features onboard alongside the Dex platform compatibility. The Tab S4 is a direct successor to the Tab S3 which was introduced in 2017. Including Dolby Atmos and speakers tuned by AKG for true-to-life audio quality. It also supports Dex multi-tasking platform.

The South Korea tech firm is also giving a special introductory offer wherein you can get Rs 5,000 cashback on the Galaxy Tab S4 on HDFC Bank credit cards, and EMI on HDFC Bank debit cards and Consumer Durable Loans. The tablet also comes with an instant Jio cashback worth Rs. 2,750 that will be available on recharging with Rs. 198 and Rs. 299 plans.

Electronics major Samsung India expects to double its market share in premium tablet PC category in the country by December this year, a senior company official said.

Battery life is also a highlight of always-on devices, and the Galaxy Book 2 will get up to 20 hours of life per charge, according to Samsung.

One of Samsung's key arguments for why you should opt for its Windows 10 on Arm machine over those from other manufacturers is the integration with other Samsung devices. In the dual mode, you can connect the tablet to a bigger monitor. The cable comes along with the tablet out of the box.

However, as with most Windows 10 S devices, an option to switch to full Windows 10 will still be available.

Unlike, say, an iPad Pro where the keyboard and pen are sold separately, Samsung will be bundling the Galaxy Book 2's accessories. Since it's an "LTE" version, you can also place a SIM card in it and use it on the go.

Elsewhere, the 2-in-1 packs 4GB of RAM, 128GB of built-in storage expandable via microSD, two USB-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack and support for Samsung's S-Pen stylus. The device also gets an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera for video chats. Of course, that will vary with usage, but Adaptive Fast Charging means recharging shouldn't take very long and the battery is automatically protected from overcharging.

Power-users may be disappointed to see that the Galaxy Book 2 will ship with Windows 10 in S Mode, which allows only for apps in the Microsoft Store.
