Not only that, it has a 7th gen Core i5 processor, a better keyboard case, 2 USB C ports, micro SD card slot and come with the S pen.

No but through a USB C adapter. But the wifi reception is very good. See Lisa Gade's review:

I prefer direct connection to wifi. But I don't think samsung has an adapter meant for this purpose

Yes, not the Samsung adapter but third party ones. Anyway, I think this tablet is intended more for portability.

Here is another review. The camera looks very good, I think better the the Tab S3 :

Very interested in this, not sure what will be the price here. The previous Tab S Pro seemed to be much more expensive than the conversion from USD, think this one might be even worse

The new SP follow the legacy of all SP...keyboard and pen are sold separaely...it would cost more.
While Galaxy ook, likely sme price as SP bt comes iwth keyboard and pen

SP esp the i5, is suppose to be fanless thus thinner and les noisy

I think the Galaxy Book is also fanless. SP is more functional but the screen cannot compare with the Book's amazing OLED.
