We were expecting at least one surprise from Samsung yesterday and we got it. At the end of the Unpacked event, Samsung debuted the Galaxy Book S, a slim, lightweight system created in collaboration with Microsoft and Qualcomm.

The laptop comes with Windows 10 on a Qualcomm processor. One of the biggest benefits of Qualcomm‘s chip is its crazy battery life of 23 hours with a single charge according to the company.

Galaxy Book S has a USB-C port on both sides which means you can charge it with the Galaxy Note 10 adapter. For this reason, the company was very proactive with Windows accountancy for the Note 10. Microsoft even acquired CEO Satya Nadella to discuss the growing partnership between the two companies.

Inside the laptop hides an eight-core Snapdragon 8cx 7-nanometer processor. Comes in two colors and has a 13-inch touch screen. Samsung says it resembles a laptop but has the essence of a smartphone thanks to the chip and LTE connectivity. The laptop has 720p HD front camera, 8GB of RAM, microSD port, fingerprint sensor, light sensor, AKG stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos technology.

Galaxy Book S goes on sale in September for $999.
