If you are eager to get your hands on Samsung’s Windows 10 Galaxy Book tablet, you may want to hold your horses for a moment. The Korean tech giant has released the user manual for the Galaxy Book, though in addition to details about the tablet’s features, some oddities are also uncovered.

Announced at Mobile World Conference 2017, Samsung’s new Windows 10 tablet comes in two variants, namely a 12-inch model and a 10.2-inch one. Both feature InstantGo and Samsung Flow. Additionally, the manual reveals other interesting features, including various screen angles courtesy of the keyboard cover and NFC chip embedded in the keyboard cover.

While these are some nifty features, the keyboard cover also indirectly brings with it an issue that affects the Galaxy Book’s performance. More specifically, the tablet becomes slower when disconnected from the keyboard cover. While this setback helps save power on one hand, it is an unnecessary compromise on the other.

The Galaxy Book succeeds Samsung’s Galaxy TabPro S line, which was released last year with Intel’s latest Kaby Lake Core i5 processors. The next-generation of Samsung tablets offer up to 10 hours of battery life, coupled with fast-charging features. As a quick recap, the Windows 10 tablets include the following features:

12-inch Galaxy Book
