Samsung may have exited the notebook market in Malaysia years ago, but the Korean electronics giant is still making them for other markets. Recently, serial leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) posted a set of image renders believed to be the Samsung Galaxy Book S.
The Galaxy Book S is an ultraportable notebook and, as its name suggests, the machine will be running on Microsoft’s Window 10 S OS. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Book 2, the Galaxy Book S is expected to be running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.
There isn’t a whole lot of information regarding the rest of its hardware, but some tech outfits have speculated that Samsung intends for the notebook to have a bare minimum of 8GB RAM accompanying the chipset.
From the image renders, we can also see that the display of the Galaxy Book S will have thin bezels. Both at the top and on each side. Its keyboard design is typical of notebook keyboards, but it’s also got a larger than average trackpad.
Ports-wise, we know that the Galaxy Book S has a USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the left side. Unfortunately, there’s no render of its right side, so we don’t actually know if that’s all the ports the notebook will be housing.
While the images look polish and reflective of a finished product, Samsung still hasn’t said anything about the Galaxy Book S, and therefore should be taken with a pinch of salt. Having said that, and considering the source of the leak, it would be a little difficult not to treat the renders as gospel. In any case, we’ll just have to wait until Samsung’s official announcement.
