Apart from the Galaxy Tab S3, Samsung also introduced the Galaxy Book as a new productivity-centric 2-in-1 tablet in its product line. Targeted toward users who essentially want to get things done such as multitaskers and collaborative individuals, the Galaxy Book comes in two versions: 10.6-inch and 12-inch. Similar to the Galaxy Tab S3, the Galaxy Book comes bundled with a refined S Pen and it can accommodate up to 256GB of microSD storage. It also features a keyboard that is larger and more tactile with discernible keys so users can comfortably type just as they would on a traditional computing device.

It is also available in a variant that has 4GB RAM and 128GB built-in SSD storage. With such processing power, the Galaxy Book runs on Microsoft Windows 10 OS.
