Samsung announces new Notebook 9 series powered by Windows 10

Samsung updates its Notebook 9 ultrabooks with even bigger batteries

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.

On the specs front, the Samsung Notebook 9 boasts of a 13.3-inch Samsung RealViewTouch FHD display. The 13-inch model will feature the 8 generation Intel Core i7 CPU coupled with 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage, thanks to its "Metal12" magnesium-aluminum alloy that weighs only 2.2 pounds. It is powered by 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, and can be configured with up to 16GB DDR4 memory, and 512GB storage. The 15-inch models will however, be coming with Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU. Both variants of the Notebook 9 offer the same Metal12 frame as the Notebook 9 Pen, along with the Full HD displays. The 75W Hexacell battery should include a battery life boost, but the company is only committing to a vague "always-on power", with fast charging support for when you need to top the battery up. Connectivity options include a USB Type-C port, one USB 3.0 port, a very handy HDMI port, as well as a fingerprint sensor. The 15-inch USB-C port will support Thunderbolt 3, and there's also an additional USB 2.0 port on the larger model.

According to YoungGyoo Choi, SVP of Samsung's PC Business Team, "The new Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and enhanced Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) and Samsung Notebook 9 Pen offer our customers premium, powerful and portable devices that provide the tools to securely work from anywhere, breaking the boundaries of previously accepted standards for what a notebook should be". Samsung hasn't revealed pricing yet, but the company should share more info on that at CES 2018. S Pen shortcuts are automatically available when the stylus is removed from the laptop; the system also automatically launches Autodesk's Sketchbook app and Samsung Notes.

Samsung updates its Notebook 9 ultrabooks with even bigger batteries

It thus makes ideal sense for the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) to be unveiled today ahead of commercial launches in Korea later this same month, followed by United States expansions in the first quarter of the new year. The rest of the line up comes with a 13.3-inch Full-HD screen and two 15-inch Full-HD screens.

The Notebook 9 Pen comes preloaded with Windows 10. That makes them, at the heaviest, only slightly heavier than the Notebook 9 Pen, though you don't get the added convenience of that 360-degree display and integrated battery-free stylus.
