It also appears fanless and (happens to be) thinner.
According to GSMArena, the 12" model is unlikely fanless:
The bigger 12-inch model has an extra grille on the top side as well, but that is just a cooling exhaust for the fan.
Actually, any device sporting the U chip is unlikely capable of being fanless without throttling.
The galaxy book has a claimed running time of 10.5 hrs. If this is an accurate claim, it compares favorably with V...with a U chip vs the Y chip in our product.
Don't forget Eve claims 12 hours with the V
And the 12 hours claim was for the 10" model.
The 10" model uses a m3, which is realistic for 10 hours.
I guess we all agree that battery optimization is very important, more than the battery size itself.
It's important to note that the V's battery is like 60% larger (48Whr vs 30.4Whr for the 10" m3),
Samsung would need some kind of dark magic to actually run 10 hours if the V only runs 12 hours. (Optimization doesn't/couldn't go that far)
That said, I'm a bit interested in the 10" model myself
Because it's like a full x86 Windows 10 hiding inside an iPad
