Does Samsung Galaxy Book S support LTE?

Best answer: Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Book S comes with LTE connectivity. The downside of LTE's faster battery drain is offset by the device's massive battery life, too.Get yours: Samsung Galaxy Book S ($1,000 at Microsoft)From the source: Samsung Galaxy Book S ($1,000 at Samsung)

The lowdown on LTE

The Samsung Galaxy Book S comes with LTE connectivity, allowing users to access the internet at incredible speeds while they are outside of Wi-Fi range. As long as the area you're in has a decent cell signal, you'll be able to surf the web with no issue at all thanks to LTE.

One of the most significant downsides of LTE is the fact that it often causes devices to die faster, but the Samsung Galaxy Book S counteracts that effect with its stellar 23-hour battery life. Though LTE will shorten the amount of time you can use the laptop before recharging, you'll still be getting well over a dozen hours of battery life out of the device, which is all anyone needs with a laptop.

Aside from LTE connectivity and incredible battery life, there are other reasons to get the Samsung Galaxy Book S as well. It's got an extremely portable form factor of just 11.8mm of thickness and 0.98kg of weight, making it one of the most manageable laptops to take with you on the go that exists on the market. On top of that, it has a competent Snapdragon 8cx CPU that can stand up to general work and web browsing tasks with ease. The 13-inch HD touch display also looks great and has excellent color accuracy, making viewing experiences enjoyable. The keyboard is pleasant as well, offering a comfortable, low-profile typing experience.

In addition to the above, the device also has some great features built into it. These include premium AKG speakers that have Dolby Atmos technology, dual USB-C ports (not Thunderbolt 3), and a fingerprint reader that works with the Windows Hello biometric security systems that you can use with Windows 10.
