The Galaxy Book2 looks suspiciously similar to the Surface Pro 6 thanks to the addition of a new built-in aluminum kickstand. When it comes to the actual tech specs, the tablet is equipped with a large 12-inch Super AMOLED display which boasts a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels and is paired with two AKG-tuned speakers. Internally, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 850 can be found, with 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD.
- Display size:
- Pixel density:
Pixel density – The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.
Technology – There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes.
Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed.
Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Hardware & Performance
- System chip:
System chip – Most modern handsets use an advanced chip that includes many of the device’s hardware modules like the processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and sometimes even the wireless radio. This field shows what particular system chip (or System-on-a-Chip) is used in the phone.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 SDM850
Processor – The processor is the main computing component of a phone and is a major factor when it comes to the overall speed of the device. Some more powerful smartphones use dual-core and quad-core processors designed to deliver greater performance.
- Hexa-core, 2950 MHz, Kryo 385, 64-bit, 10 nm
GPU – The graphics processor is important for the smooth operation of the system and especially in games and other applications that may involve complex graphics and animations.
Memory – System memory, or RAM memory is the type of memory that the device uses to temporarily store data from the OS or currently-running apps. The more RAM available to the device, the better the performance will be when multiple or heavier programs are running.
- Internal storage:
Internal storage – Bigger storage capacity allows you to keep more content saved onto your device, such as more applications, photos or video. Games and video content typically take up the biggest amount of storage space.
- Storage expansion:
Storage expansion – Some handsets allow you to expand their storage capacity by using a memory expansion card – most often microSD. Expansion memory is mostly suitable for media storage, such as photo, video or music content.
Capacity – The bigger, the better! However, battery capacity is not the only factor that has an effect on battery life. Those include the chipset in use, the software running on the device, as well as the consumer’s unique usage pattern.
- Fast Charging:
- Stand-by time:
the average is 23 days (559 h)
28.0 days (672 hours)
- 28.0 days (672 hours)
- Music playback:
- LTE (FDD):
- Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 14, 20, 28, 29, 30, 66
- LTE (TDD):
- LTE-A Pro Cat 18 (1200/150 Mbit/s), HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS
- SIM type:
- 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac, dual-band, i
- Mobile hotspot:
Mobile hotspot – Turns your phone into a Wi-Fi access point to which other Wi-Fi-capable devices can connect. These devices can then access the internet via your phone’s data connectivity.
- Mass storage device, USB OTG, USB charging
Location – This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. The most common types are GPS and A-GPS.
GPS – This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather.
A-GPS – A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization.
