Microsoft may not be a threat in the smartphone industry but over in the tablet department, they are the best brand around. This cannot be helped as Microsoft has enjoyed massive success with the Surface Pro Series.
The latter started off as a tablet with laptop-like features and this was widely received by the consumers due to the demand for a productivity-tailored device. Microsoft then started putting productivity into their focus for the Surface Pro 2, 3 and 4 thus turning the line of tablets into the best in the world.
This year, the Surface Pro 5 will look to extend the success streak of the Surface Pro series but it won’t be a walk in the park for the device. This is because Samsung has confirmed that they want to compete with the Surface Pro 5 with the upcoming Galaxy Book.
There will be two variants of the Samsung Galaxy Book: the first measures at 10 inches and runs its display up to 1080p. It focuses more on media than productivity given that it packs an Intel Core M3 processor. The 12-inch model is where the fun really is.
Besides sporting Samsung’s signature AMOLED display, the larger Galaxy Book is driven by an Intel Core i5 that gives it enough punch for productivity tasks such as design work and video editing.
The Galaxy Book certainly looks like it is perfectly pieced to make an impactful debut but will it be able to pose a serious threat for the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 5?
