Samsung may have had a rough few months, but its upcoming release, the Samsung Galaxy Book, may just be the product it needs to bounce back. The Galaxy Book is arguably the Korean tech giant's most prominent Windows 10 release as most of its previous smartphone and tab products run on the Android OS.

According to The Verge, this latest tablet computer could be Samsung's answer to the rising popularity of rival Microsoft's Surface tablets, which also run on Windows. And based on early looks at the tab, it looks like it may give Microsoft a legitimate run for their money. The Galaxy Book will come in two models: the 10-inch and 12-inch. The 12-inch Samsung Galaxy Book, in particular, is already assured of a great performance due to the Super AMOLED screen, 8 GB RAM and 3.1GHz dual-core 7th generation I5 processor.

CNet compared the Samsung Galaxy Book to other popular Windows 10 tablet models in the market right now like the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, Lenovo Mix 510 and the Acer Aspire Switch Alpha 12 and a few things become clear. For one, the Samsung Galaxy Book trumps all these three other tabs in the list when it comes to battery life as it can last for as long as 10 ½ hours. While it does not have a regular USB slot, it does have two USB-C ports.

Compared to the three aforementioned Windows 10 tabs, the Samsung Galaxy Book also takes better photos for its 5-megapixel front and 13-megapixel back cameras.

The Samsung Galaxy Book release date will be announced soon though tech pundits are predicting that it will be out by spring 2017 in an attempt to compete with the release of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. The starting price for the Samsung Galaxy Book is also yet to be confirmed as well.
