CES 2018: Samsung Reveals New Notebook 9 Laptops

Samsung is doubling down on its laptop efforts in 2018, announcing its plans to start the year strong with three new laptops, namely a brand new model dubbed the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen.

The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen, a 13.3-inch 2-in-1 notebook, will have an integrated S Pen, similar to the Notebook 9 Pro, which was introduced in May.

The new specs now include the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor for all models, supported by up to 16 GB of Dynamic Data Rate Type 4 (DDR4) memory. The body is made out of a magnesium alloy called Metal12, which is both light and durable. The 13.3-inch screen variant comes standard with Intel HD graphics while the 15-inch model comes with optional 2GB NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics processor. The battery also supports fast charging and the Notebook 9 (2018) measures 15.4mm, which makes it one of the thinnest and lightest notebooks in its segment.

Theres a third version – the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13.3”. 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.

Samsung added a set of potentially handy software tools, too, such as Studio Plus for photo and video content creation, Samsung Message that lets you send messages from the laptop to contacts saved on your phone and a voice-activated note-taking app.
