Can the Galaxy Book from Samsung Take On Microsoft Surface Pro 4?

Windows 10 Android

However, with the second edition hitting mass production recently, sources at DigiTimes have declared that the Surface Book 2 will regress to a more traditional clamshell laptop design, and leave its innovative 2-in-1 concept behind. It sounds like the company is trying to pull in more buyers with a lower price, especially as the announcement is expected to come around the same time Apple is expected to release the pricey new iPad Pro 2. But now it seems that Microsoft would not bring the tablet feature to its Surface Book 2.

If accurate, that would be a radical rethink of the Surface Book. This is a good and bad thing, as people who use Surface Book as a tablet (at least sometimes) won't like the news - but it's a heavy device, and doesn't bode well in tablet use.

This is significantly lower than the starting price of the original Surface Book, which starts from $1,499 (£1,210). The Surface Book 2 will still wield a 13.5-inch display. Even its chassis is likely going to be composed of the same magnesium-aluminum alloy.

According to a recent DigiTimes report, the Surface Book 2 has already entered pre-production.

With the "Surface Book 2" expected to launch either at the end of March or in April, people won't have to wait that long to see what Microsoft has in store. The laptop could retail from just $1,000, a third less than the $1,500 upwards Surface Book. The Surface Studio was added in October 2016, and the Surface Book received its Performance Base refresh.

Either way, it looks like Microsoft is simply making an effort to make a distinction of its product lines to highlight their offerings' respective strengths while boosting the demand. This would be another reason for the change from two-in-one to a traditional laptop.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that consumers and Businesses alike hate flaky companies constantly shifting strategies like season-to-season fashion.

Furthermore, it is virtually a giving that Microsoft will incorporate its highly-anticipated Windows 10 Creators Update on its upcoming line of Surface devices.

Is Microsoft really dumb enough to drop their 2-in-1 form factor next quarter or has Taiwan's supply chain sources finally fallen off a cliff here by misinterpreting Microsoft's game plan?
