Samsung’s Qualcomm-powered Galaxy Book S has 23 hours of battery life

Samsung is on a roll. In addition to the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, the tech giant also introduced the Galaxy Book S at the recent Unpacked event in New York. Its biggest draws: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx processor, 23-hour battery life, a 13-inch touchscreen display, and LTE connectivity.

Feels like a phone

With the new chipset, the laptop is said to have 40% greater CPU performance and 80% greater graphics performance than its predecessor, the Galaxy Book 2. In addition, the processor gives the Book S its long 23-hour battery life. Of course, this depends on actual usage.

The notebook’s 13-inch display supports 10-point multi-touch input, making this device feel like a smartphone. Coupled with Gigabit LTE support, the Galaxy S allows its users to connect to the Web anywhere.

Although the Book S improves on its performance and battery life, its body is still thin at 11.8mm and light at 0.95kg. The only ports on the laptop are two USB-C port, a SIM card slot, and a microSD card slot. It will be available in two colorways: pink and gray.
