Samsung ready to challenge Microsoft, will Galaxy Book be coming soon?

Samsung is reportedly ready to launch a new hybrid computer that should challenge the Surface Book. The Korean computer could be launched in the coming months

Samsung is ready to launch a challenge to Microsoft. According to several rumors, in fact, the South Korean giant is working on a laptop similar to the Surface Book that will most likely call Galaxy Book. This would confirm the rumors of a growing interest of Samsung towards the Windows 10 universe.

The news has circulated on the Net after an application called Book Settings has been published on the Windows Store. The Galaxy Book will obviously run on Windows 10 and the app in the Microsoft Store, which has hinted at the future release of the Samsung device, was created precisely to provide users with access to configuration settings. The app doesn't seem to be designed for other PCs, as the description suggests, except for Galaxy Book. According to other industry experts, however, Samsung's new device will not be a mere competitor to Microsoft's Surface Book.

App Compatibility and Features

One of the most interesting aspects is that the app is compatible with HoloLens and Surface Hub. This benefits those who believe that Samsung is increasing its investment within the Windows 10 ecosystem, as opposed to just creating a competitive device. Installing the app will also get you Battery Life Extender, user manual and many other Samsung-specific features.

Samsung and interest in Windows 10

Despite Samsung's interest in collaborating or competing directly with Microsoft, the app makes it clear that the South Korean company has a strong interest in investing in Windows 10 devices. Meanwhile, it should also be said that Microsoft is working on the second generation of its Surface Book that should be launched on the market during the spring alongside the Surface Pro 5. On the other hand, the release date of the Galaxy Book is unclear, but it's likely that you won't have to wait too long, given the presence on the Microsoft Store of the settings app.
