Samsung Notebook 9 - Specs And The New S Pen

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 Samsung Notebook 9 Pen offers flexibility and portability with the convertible hinge and S Pen.

All of the new PCs include Intel's new eighth-generation U-series Core i7 processors, which means that they're quad-core and there's going to be a significant boost in performance from the last generation. All new notebooks are built of magnesium aluminum alloy, dubbed as "Metal12". There's no 4K resolution option here, and the same can be said about the 13.3- and 15-inch Notebook 9 models.

On the Notebook 9 Pen, the screen flips 360-degrees, enabling consumers to use it as a laptop. The device weighs the same as the other same sized model, however, has a smaller 39Wh battery.

For security the new devices will be having a fingerprint reader for Windows Hello and the Notebook 9 Pen will include an IR camera for facial recognition.

The connectivity features on board the LG smartphone are 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, NFC, GPS and USB Type-C. LG has also incorporated the 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC with digital filters and sound tuning by B&O PLAY.

Samsung plans to first release these 2018 models in Korea starting this month, followed by other countries; the USA will get them in the first quarter of next year.

Samsung fights for much more mobility to its devices, also very lightweight to ease everyone's access while using on-the-go Notebook 9. They both are powered by Intel Core i7 processors and feature 16GB RAM and 1TB of storage. The battery also supports fast charging option so you can recharge the entire Notebook 9 in just a few minutes. Along with the new processor, Samsung says it added its "largest and most powerful battery placed inside a notebook".

In 2016, the Samsung Notebook 9 didn't have any particular improvements in its design. The laptop also comes with S Pen, which can recognize 4096 levels of pressure and comes with a tip of 0.7mm thickness.

The larger model will even be offered with optional discreet NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics, as well as all the ports you could ever need, including Thunderbolt 3 technology, a pair of USB 3.0s, a USB 2.0, HDMI, and a microSD slot. The notebook will be available in two versions: a 13.3-inch and a 15-inch model. For connectivity, the 13-inch Notebook 9 (2018) is equipped with USB-C, USB 3.0, HDMI, United States dollars card slot, headphone/microphone and DC-in whereas the 15-inch model has Thunderbolt 3 (or USB-C), USB 3.0, HDMI, uSD card slot, headphone/microphone jack and DC-in.
