Wowser. No wonder Samsung dished out the Galaxy S4 smartphone spin-offs in advance – the real magic at its Premiere Event in London today lay elsewhere.
Behold the Samsung ATIV Q, a dual-booting 13.3in tablet/laptop hybrid with an astonishingly high resolution of 3,200 x 1,800. That's a pixel density of 275PPI, on – it's worth repeating – a 13.3in screen.
The Windows 8 and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS OS ground-share is another eyebrow-raiser, giving you the best of both worlds to suit your needs or desires. Impressively, you can switch between the two without rebooting.
It's also versatile in the physical sense, offering four different configurations including a traditional laptop mode, tablet mode (with the display flat on top of the keyboard facing up), and a “floating” mode where the display pivots up and over the keyboard at an angle.
The specs are pretty good too. An Intel Core i5 Haswell processor with Intel HD Graphics 4400 GPU is at the heart of it all, and there's 4GB of RAM and 128GB of solid state storage too. Samsung is promising nine hours of battery life, and supplied accessories include an S-Pen.
Given the physical versatility and meaty specs, the ATIV Q's 1.29kg weight and 13.9mm waistline are fairly impressive achievements and certainly don't push it beyond the realms of portability.
When will it be available? And more importantly, for how much? We don't have the answers yet, but rest assured – this one won't be cheap.
