Based on Geekbench and Bluetooth SIG Certification listings, we know that the laptop bears the model number SM-W737.

As such, we expect the galaxy Book S to also feature a detachable keyboard and roughly a 12-inch sized AMOLED touchscreen. The 2-in-1 will also likely support S Pen input and feature USB Type-C ports for connectivity and charging.
