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

Samsung Notebook 9

CES 2018 is only a few weeks away, but some product announcements are arriving even before it hits the showroom floor. Both the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 will be available in the USA in early 2018, and we're expecting to get a closer look at them at CES next month.

Samsung refreshed its Notebook 9 series of laptops earlier this year, and the company is getting ready to do the same for 2018. The 15-inch Notebook 9 (2018) comes in another variant that features NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics. The material, which is lightweight compared to single aluminum, makes the aesthetics more pleasant and high-end compared to the plastic-like material that Samsung used before. The screen itself does not detach from the keyboard like other 2-in-1s. Its superior magnesium aluminium body keeps the notebook light at 2.2 pounds while allowing a 360-degree access. It's an S Pen, so while it's smaller, it doesn't require a battery and it fits inside of a holster in the device. It also boasts a convenient tilt detection feature for rendering natural handwriting and and nuanced drawing. When the S Pen is removed from the notebook, the Air Command menu launches automatically.

The two regular laptops will have a 75Wh battery, while the Notebook 9 Pen will have a 39Wh battery. There is a USB Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, and a fingerprint sensor as well.

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".

The new Notebook 9 (2018) comes with the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor. They have not divulged much details about this yet, but they are only committing to a vague notion of "always-on power" capability. It measures in a 13.3-inches, but it only supports a 1080p resolution. Storage tops off at 512GB of NVMe PCIe memory and it only has an integrated Intel HD Graphics. Apart from that, the laptops will also sport HDMI port, USB-C port, fingerprint scanner and PCI Express-based NVMe SSDs. There is also a USB-C port available. The 15” model sports a Thunderbolt 3 port for those who need extra screens and fast external accessories. Samsung hasn't revealed pricing yet, but the company should share more info on that at CES 2018.
