Today’s workforce, along with the tech industry, is changing. More and more consumers are trading in traditional laptops and PCs for devices that do more – in both form factor and performance. Workers, consumers and enterprises also have an expectation of mobility, a seamless transition and integration between experiences.

If you’re often working on the go, check out a new 2-in-1 portable PC that’s on and always connected, Samsung’s new Galaxy Book2, running Windows 10 and powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile compute platform.

Where LTE was once “nice to have,” more and more users are seeing the benefits of being always connected to what is important to them, both at home and at work. Fast gigabit LTE on the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 keeps you productive and connected, without having to look for a Wi-Fi connection. With Instant On, it starts up as quickly as your smartphone, so you can work, stream and download a full-length movie in HD resolution within seconds. No more “hibernating” or “sleep mode” like on traditional PCs. Multitask and get things done quickly with an ultra-fast and responsive Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile compute platform.

With Windows 10, you’ll feel right at home running your favorite apps, creating spreadsheets, editing presentations and emailing files on the go. Being “Always On” requires that the Galaxy Book 2 has a powerful multi-day battery that recharges quickly, thanks to Adaptive Fast Charging. With it, you can watch up to 20+ hours of video with the immersive audio experience of Dolby Atmos and speakers tuned by AKG for true-to-life audio quality. Combine that incredible sound with a state-of-the-art Super AMOLED touch display and you’ve got a phenomenal cinematic experience wherever you go.

Power up and login instantly with the easy fingerprint scanner that opens to your touch only with Windows Hello. Galaxy Book2 ships with Windows 10 in S mode, which means you don’t have to think twice when downloading your favorite apps or visiting a website. Plus, apps available through the Microsoft Store are Microsoft-verified providing an additional level of security and protection. Windows 10 in S mode provides a streamlined, secure and battery efficient experience that is excellent for a variety of customers, particularly those who need every day browsing and apps. Users can also rest assured that the Windows app catalog gives customers the widest selection of full featured apps on Always Connected PCs.

Two accessories come with the Galaxy Book2 making it easy to work and play when you’re on the move: a backlit keyboard that connects on contact and adjusts to you, so you can easily switch from touch to type and a precise, pressure-responsive S Pen. Neither needs charging.

Another bonus: Samsung Flow gives users seamless file transfers between your Galaxy Book2 and your Galaxy smartphone. Start marking up a document on your Galaxy Book2, and then edit it on your phone whenever you want. And don’t worry about missing smartphone notifications—they come straight to your Always Connected PC screen so you can immediately reply to messages and social posts from your PC without skipping a beat.
