Samsung Electronics has announced the availability of Galaxy Book S with Intel processor, the latest addition to its leading computing device family.

Galaxy Book S is powered by the new dynamic Intel Core processor with Intel Hybrid Technology. Galaxy Book S follows other previously announced premium mobile laptops, designed to extend a seamless and connected experience across devices.

“The way we work has shifted and it’s important we have computing devices that can adapt to this new working style. Users utilize multiple devices throughout their day to accomplish tasks, and demand that those devices provide them with enough flexibility to remain on the move and available,” said Woncheol Chai, SVP and Head of Product Planning Team, Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics.

“With our new computing devices like the Galaxy Book S, we are providing users with an exciting opportunity to be productive, efficient and connected.”

The new Intel Core processor with Intel Hybrid Technology delivers full Windows 10 application compatibility and intelligently adjusts multiple high-performing processes during use while preserving battery when not in use, powering your creative, commerce and business programs.

Galaxy Book S features a long-lasting battery1 and offers up to 512GB of storage too, so you don’t have to waste time worrying about losing power or running out of space.

“The introduction of Samsung Galaxy Book S, the first device to offer the Intel Core processor with Intel Hybrid Technology, builds on our long history with Samsung. Today, we showcase what can be achieved when we bring great engineering talent together to work towards a united vision for new computing experiences of the future.”
