If you are looking forward to picking up one of Samsung’s new Windows 10 tablets announced at Mobile World Conference 2017, you may be happy to learn that the user manual for the device is now available, which explains exactly what features such as InstantGo and Samsung Flow does.

Two Galaxy Book devices have been announced, a 12 inch one and a 10.2 inch one.

The manual reveals some interesting features, such as that different screen angles are available due to the keyboard cover, that the NFC chip is inexplicably in the keyboard cover, and that the device will be slower when disconnected from the keyboard cover, presumably to save power.

Samsung Galaxy Book family is a successor to last year’s Galaxy TabPro S line, and comes with Intel’s latest and greatest Kaby Lake Core i5 processors and promise up to 10 hours of battery life, and they also pack fast-charging features.
