Samsung Galaxy Book seems to be coming out equipped to compete with its rival Microsoft Surface Pro 4. Considering the specs comparison of the two models, the former seems to be smarter with its more powerful features.
Since the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Book is coming out with two variants, the 10-inch screen and 12-inch screen, the latter was used for comparison purpose. There were several similarities in the two models but several differences can also be noticed from the two.

On the inside, the upcoming Galaxy Book runs with Windows 10 while the Surface Pro 4 is powered by Windows 10 Pro OS. The latter possesses more robust OS than the former, although the difference is just marginal.
The Korean tablet comes equipped with the latest 3.1GHz Core i5 7th-generation Kaby Lake processor. The Microsoft tablet seems a bit inferior with its 6th-generation Skylake processor.
Another edge of the Samsung tablet is its battery. The Korean tablet claims 10.5-hour battery life while the rival has been bombarded with complaints on its substandard battery.
In terms of storage capacity, the Surface Pro 4 is available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB versions. Whereas, the Galaxy Book only has 128GB and 256GB variants.
The Galaxy Book also comes smarter with its 13-megapixel rear camera. On the other hand, the Surface Pro 4 also has an 8-megapixel rear camera.
With regard to display, the Galaxy Book sports a 12-inch 2,160 x 1,440 AMOLED screen while the Surface Pro 4 comes with a 12.3-inch 2,736x1,824 IPS LCD display. Although both models have premium grade displays, the former outsmarts the latter with its HDR capabilities, the Inquisitr reported.
Meanwhile, the two models sport similar 5-megapixel front camera. Both have MicroSD reader and 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity.
Both models come with its own pen. The Samsung tablet has an S Pen while the Microsoft tablet has a Surface Pen, PC Advisor has noted.
Although there are significant differences and superiority features, another missing factor will most likely determine which model will turn out to be better. As of this time, Samsung has not revealed the price tags for the upcoming Galaxy Book so it is still too early to make a firm judgment if it has or has not beaten the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
