Samsung brought a new laptop to CES 2018, one that’s heavily influenced by the Note series. It’s dubbed Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and it’s a convertible that comes bundled with an S Pen stylus. The product has a 13.3 inch screen and more specs are detailed below.
This is clearly a convertible, one that has an aluminum and magnesium body and a rotating screen. The design is rather generic, but the format is highly portable, thanks to a 13 inch diagonal. It all weighs just 2.2 pounds and the thickness is 0.64 inches. As far as hardware is concerned, we actually get two screen versions here: 13.3 inch and 15 inch.
Inside there’s an 8th gen Intel Core i7 processor, coupled with up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of SSD storage. The battery of the smaller unit is a 39 Wh one, while the bigger model has a 75 Wh battery. And then there’s the stylus.. the pen. Even though we called it the “S Pen”, it’s actually not exactly that, but rather a different version, but inspired by the S-Pen. It fits within the base of the device within a special silo.
The stylus is slim, has a single button and it’s supposed to be comfy. Once pulled out it triggers an “Air Command” style panel with a variety of shortcuts, like Create Note, Smart Select or Screen Write. It comes with a 0.7 mm tip and supports 4096 levels of pressure. On the connectivity front there’s USB Type-C (one port), HDMI, USB 3.0 and microSD. We don’t have a price yet.
