Responding to questions from MyBroadband, Samsung South Africa confirmed that the Galaxy A9 would be available locally in December 2018 for a recommended retail price of R11,999.
"With the long-lasting battery in the Galaxy Book 2, you can work uninterrupted for up to 20 hour - more than two full work days", Samsung swoons in its announcement.
Samsung is one of the clear leaders in mobile display tech, and its screens are found in a wide range of flagship devices including its own Galaxy phones and those of its biggest competitors such as Apple.
Accessory-wise, the PC comes with an S Pen and keyboard periphery bundled together with purchase.
As an introductory offer, you can buy the device and get Rs 5000 cashback on HDFC Bank Credit Cards, and EMI on HDFC Bank Debit Cards and Consumer Durable Loans. Though Samsung is touting it to be a PC replacement as well, there are quite a few features that make this Android device much more than a 2-in-1. Samsung clearly sees the benefit with this type of a device and is announcing the Galaxy Book2. The speakers are tuned by AKG and support Dolby Atmos for surround sound effect.
Samsung's Galaxy Book2 runs Windows 10 S and comes with 128GB storage, 4GB RAM, as well as an array of sensors including an accelerometer and fingerprint reader.
Below are the specifications of the new Samsung Galaxy A9. And with the precise, pressure-responsive S Pen, you can create and navigate easily. The pen sticks to the side of the Book 2 with a magnet, which is a bit more elegant than last year's solution of a loop attached to the keyboard. From clipping and magnifying to translating, the S Pen lets you take your creativity to new heights.
One of Samsung's key arguments for why you should opt for its Windows 10 on Arm machine over those from other manufacturers is the integration with other Samsung devices. The firm is only selling the LTE variant of the device.
Underneath the 2-in-1 design is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile chipset.
