The smaller of the two will be starting at $629.99. What really sets the 12-inch model apart is the availability as an LTE device. The added capability to connect to wireless networks places it slightly more expensive at $1,299.99 whereas the Wi-Fi model will be sold for $1,129.99.

Galaxy Book LTE will officially be available at Verizon Wireless locations starting April 21. Similarly, the Wi-Fi version will begin pre-orders the same day with a global release on May 21.
