  • Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) and Notebook 9 Pen announced with upgraded features

Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) have been announced ahead of the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Both devices are expected to be showcased at CES 2018.

The new Notebook 9 Pen is a 2-in-1 PC with a full metal construction and a 360-degree hinge that makes it easy for users to convert to a tablet when needed. It measures 310.5 x 206.6 x 14.5-16.5mm and its weight is 995 grams.

The laptop features a 13-inch display and is powered by an Intel 8th-generation Core processor, with support for up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. The 15-inch model offers a wider selection of port including a Thunderbolt 3.0 port, two USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, one HDMI port and microSD card slot. As the name implies, the Notebook 9 Pen is a laptop that comes with a stylus, which also means that the laptop in question comes with touchscreen functionality. The front-facing IR camera supports facial authentication through Windows Hello. The S Pen has a 0.7mm tip so users can even use the screen as a sketchpad to draw illustrations. It is capable of detecting 4096 levels of pressure. Whenever the S Pen is detached from the notebook, the Air Command will automatically be launched with the S Pen shortcuts as we have seen in the previous Samsung devices. This model also comes with its very own S Pen stylus, which can be tucked away on the front edge of the keyboard.

Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) features a clamshell design, and comes with options for 13.3-inch or a 15-inch displays. The notebooks pack a 75Wh battery but Samsung is not sharing the standby time one can expect from the notebook. The 13.3-inch model comes with an integrated Intel HD Graphics, while the larger 15-inch model can be configured to come with an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with 2GB of memory.

The Notebook 9 (2018) will be running on Windows 10 and it will be available with up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of SSD storage.

All the new notebooks announced by Samsung today feature a backlit keyboard, precision touchpad, and a fingerprint sensor. For connectivity, the 13-inch Notebook 9 (2018) is equipped with USB-C, USB 3.0, HDMI, United States dollars card slot, headphone/microphone and DC-in whereas the 15-inch model has Thunderbolt 3 (or USB-C), USB 3.0, HDMI, uSD card slot, headphone/microphone jack and DC-in.
