Samsung is working on new Surface Pro alternative – ARM or Intel?

Samsung, the world’s largest electronics manufacturer, is apparently working on a new generation of its new Windows tablets launched last year. According to WinFuture news website, after the company said goodbye to this area some time ago, they want to refresh the last year introduced products probably now – even if initially only one instead of two new models is planned.

As quoted by LetsGoDigital from a database of the Eurasian Economic Union, which includes Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, Samsung recently received market approval for a new Windows 10 tablet. Overall, there are two variants listed, but they are likely to be closely related.

Specifically, the Samsung SM-W737 and SM-W738 are mentioned, with the model numbers in this form were used in the past exclusively on Windows-based tablets. This suggests that it is synonymous with the new models are Windows-based devices, which is currently still completely unclear, which hardware should be offered here.

Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Book with 12-inch display wore the model number SM-W727 and is equipped with a full HD display and IntelEquipped with the seventh-generation Core i5 processor. Since Intel achieved in the eighth generation of core chips through the use of four cores, a higher power loss, it would be initially questionable whether Samsung in the new model would replace the successor to the last year model built Intel Core i5-7200U.

The fact that the EU has so far only listed a single model in several variants suggests that Samsung is limiting the Galaxy Book series to one size – namely 12 inches – this year. However, the Koreans had already at the Computex 2018 in the wake of the launch of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850, a separate tablet with Windows 10 on the ARM in view. It would also be possible that Samsung said goodbye to the new model of Intel’s CPUs and now wants to bet on the new Qualcomm SoC.
