After having talked about its possible arrival, the new Galaxy Book S laptop is starting to show itself and define its appearance. The well-known leaker Evleaks recently shared on Twitter what appear to be the first renderings of the ARM-based laptop.
We can notice a very limited thickness, the presence of a USB type C input on the left side, but it is not possible to see the other side and understand which other ports are present. For more details, we leave you to read the original news, even if at the moment the information on this notebook is really small, following the rendered images.
Samsung is working on a new 2 in 1 laptop based on Windows on ARM and its commercial name should be Galaxy Book S, according to reports from Evleaks on Twitter ( in Source ). The device should be the direct successor of the Galaxy Book 2 – based on the Snapdragon 850 platform and the WoA operating system – and could take advantage of the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx SoC, designed specifically for this category of products.
The Evleaks report is not the only sighting of the device that emerged in the last few days; just yesterday Galaxy Book S has in fact also passed by the Bluetooth certification body, which confirmed the presence of Bluetooth 5.0 standard connectivity on the convertible and the serial number SM-W767 that identifies it.
Galaxy Book S has also passed at the Geekbench tables in recent days, where it showed the presence of 8GB of RAM, a CPU octa-core with a frequency of 2.84GHz and an operating system based on Windows 10 32-bit. These last two details are particularly interesting, as they allow us to indirectly confirm that it is a Windows-based on an ARM device.
In fact, WoA is able to exclusively run 32-bit x86 versions of Windows applications in EXE format (while from November it natively supports 64-bit ARM applications), such as in the case of the Geekbench application used to calculate performance of Galaxy Book S. Even the fact that the CPU is indicated as Virtual CPU gives us to understand that the software has been executed exploiting the emulation x86 proper of WoA.
In short, the clues seem to be quite clear and at this point we expect the new Galaxy Book S to share many of the solutions we have seen on its predecessors, such as the large Super AMOLED display, the completely removable keyboard and a declared autonomy of up to 20 hours. Given the high number of sightings, it is likely that the device will be announced soon, perhaps at IFA 2019.
