Samsung Notebook 9 (2018), Notebook 9 Pen 2-in-1 Officially Unveiled


LG and Samsung aren't too happy with getting lost in the crowd, so both the companies are revealing two new laptops ahead of CES today. The 13.3” version of the Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) weighs 995g (2.19lbs).

Speaking of which, the new Notebook 9 PCs include similar specs with 8th-gen Intel Core i7 processors and 16GB of RAM, but you can also upgrade your laptop with up to 1TB of SSD storage and even opt for an Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics card in the larger model.

The new 2-in-1 laptop from Samsung features a durable magnesium alloy chassis that is dubbed as Metal 21. It has an Intel integrated HD card while the 15-inch version holds a discrete Radeon 540 graphics chip with 2GB memory.

"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", said YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President of the PC Business Team for the company, in their press release on Thursday, Dec. 14. 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.

There's no word on pricing, but the Notebook 9 Pen will be available this month in Korea and will launch in other select countries in the first quarter of 2018. Both the Notebook 9 (2018) and Notebook 9 Pen come with Windows Hello built-in for secure authentication through the fingerprint sensor without having to type in a password.

The most unfortunate part of the Notebook 9 Pen is the display.

The device runs on Windows 10 and it features an IR front-facing camera for facial recognition login through Windows Hello.

The Pen model has the fewest ports of the line-up, including one USB-C port, one USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, and a microSD port. Samsung isn't saying exactly how long the Notebook 9 will last with the 75Wh Hexacell battery though. The S Pen can recognize up to 4096 levels of pressure and there is a 0.7mm fine tip. However, the similarity in design is all that is present in next year's laptops, as the new Notebook 9 models will boast additional features and top-end hardware specs. The 39Wh battery powers the Notebook 9 Pen. It is powered by 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, and can be configured with up to 16GB DDR4 memory, and 512GB storage.
