The Samsung Galaxy Book 12 is another direct competitor to Microsoft’s Surface Pro lineup. Its main highlight is a 12-inch Super AMOLED screen – one of very few Windows devices with a display like that. Other features include a keyboard cover, the S Pen stylus and a 7th generation Intel Core i5 processor. Here is everything you need to know.
- 12-inch Super AMOLED screen
- Intel Core processor
- Full metal body
- Keyboard cover & S Pen included
Samsung Galaxy Book 12: The Basics
The Samsung Galaxy Book 12 looks very similar to its smaller sibling, the Galaxy Book 10. It offers a full metal body, weighs around 750 gram and is 7.4-millimeters thin. Unlike most competitors, its main feature is a 12-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1440. Most Windows tablets are shipped with a standard LCD display only.
While the screen sets the tablet apart from similar devices, the internal hardware is almost identical to most alternatives. You can get it with an Intel Core i5 7th generation processor, up to 8GB of RAM and an up to 256GB SSD.
Samsung is bringing its S Pen stylus to Windows tablets. The active pen supports 4096 pressure points. Because of that, it is as precise as the new Microsoft Surface Pen. In fact, the pen is included out of the box and the same goes for the keyboard cover. The keyboard cover offers a keyboard, a touchpad and a stand to hold the tablet.
