Each devices includes a full QWERTY bluetooth keyboard, which adjusts depending on your needs and usage. Samsung said the devices have been designed to accommodate different user needs, such as the inclusion of a hinge to help recreate the feel of a laptop when typing. There is also a ‘stand mode’ for when watching movies. 


In addition, Samsung has launched a new product called SideSync, which enables users to control their device, including responding to texts and emails and view photos taken from their handset, from their computer.

Both device will be available before the end of the year. Pricing details and launch partners have yet to be confirmed. 

Samsung Electronics VP of IT and mobile division for the UK and Ireland Simon Stanford said: “We’re committed to offering our customers choice and convenience in personal computing, and the convertible nature of both these new tablets delivers the freedom and versatility our customers demand.

These innovative devices have been designed with busy people in mind, and the adaptability they offer is better suited to busy lives than any tablet on the market.”

The event concluded with a live performance from British female singer Emeli Sandé.
