Samsung just took the wraps off its newest Galaxy Book laptop: the Galaxy Book S. And the main highlight of the device is the fact that it’s powered by an ARM processor.

The device is powered by the Snapdragon 8cx compute platform. It’s an always-on, always-connected PC. Offers LTE connectivity and 23 hours of battery life.

The design of the device is very identical to Microsoft’s Surface Laptop. There isn’t anything standout of the design of the device, and it’s pretty simple for a laptop. But it still has a pretty nice and simple design.

Under the hood, the device comes with 8GB RAM, and up to 512GB of internal storage. Samsung says the new Snapdragon 8cx compute platform on the device will allow for 40% greater CPU performance than the Galaxy Book 2, and 80% greater graphics performance and added memory bandwidth.

Samsung says the device’s battery life will offer up to 23 hours of video playback on one charge which is pretty great. The device features a 13.3-inch FHD TFT display panel and comes with a Fingerprint Scanner for authentication via Windows Hello. It also comes with AKG stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos.

The device starts at $999, and it will be available in Earthy Gold and Mercury Graybeginning shades this September.
