Samsung Galaxy Book S is betting on battery, rather than performance

Samsung Galaxy Book S is the allegedly new 2-in-1 device from Samsung.

Geekbench result shows a new Samsung device in the works

A leaked Geekbench result showed that Samsung is working on a new Galaxy Book with Microsoft’s Windows 10 on it. galaxy book s spottedn on geekbench

The leak was further uphold by a Bluetooth certification that confirmed the device’s model number as being SM-W767, and the fact that it will have Bluetooth 5.0.

The rest of the specs remain fairly unknown, but the Geekbench leak seems to point to the fact that Galaxy Book S – base version may come with 8 GB of RAM and a 2.84 GHz octa-core processor.

The same benchmark shows a single core of 2011 and a multi-core of 6047, which leads to the conclusion that the chip inside the alleged Galaxy Book S is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855.

Galaxy Book S might have an all-day battery

If Samsung’s 2-in-1 will feature a Snapdragon chip instead of an Intel/AMD CPU, or even their in-house Exynos variant, than this paired with Bluetooth 5.0 means that the company is betting on battery life.

So we could expect a device with amazing battery and a mid to high performance, but also with 5G.

Keep in mind that Samsung’s Galaxy Book 12″ devices feature a 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 Processor, with 4 or 8GB of RAM, and 128/256GB SSD.

We expect significant improvements in CPU and RAM, but the storage could remain relatively similar.

The rumoured Galaxy Book S might come with Windows 10 version 1903 out-of-the-box and support for advanced pen input. But how it will stack up against Microsoft’s Surface devices, it remains to be seen.

Do you think Galaxy Book S will be worth your time and money?
