LG, Samsung Announce New Laptop Ahead of CES

Samsung Notebook 9 Pen

Samsung Electronics announced the launch of the new Notebook 9 Pen and three upgraded variants of the Notebook 9 on Thursday, both running Windows 10.

Like the 2017 model, the Notebook 9 (not to be confused with the Notebook 9 Pro) is wrapped in metal, though this time Samsung used a magnesium-aluminum alloy called Metal12 to keep it light, yet durable, weighing at most 2.84 pounds (1,288 grams).

Samsung is updating the Notebook 9 Pen to include Intel's 8th-generation Core i7 processors, up to 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. The devices run on the 8 generation Intel Core i7 processor and Samsung Dual Channel Memory to handle multiple jobs, viewing and rendering high-quality graphics without compromising on the performance or speed. The 15-inch Notebook 9 (2018) comes in another variant that features NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics. The company claims that the Notebook 9 (2018) is the thinnest Notebook of its range as it weighs around 1- 1.29 kg and the thickness of 15.4 mm.

Interestingly, Samsung is using the "largest and most powerful" battery its ever placed in a laptop in both models.

In the same breath, Samsung has also announced two new versions of its existing Notebook 9 laptops: a 13.3-inch and a 15-inch model. The first is Samsung's Notebook 9 Pen, and perhaps the most interesting of the trio. The front-facing IR camera supports facial authentication through Windows Hello. Both models employ the same Metal12 frame as the Notebook 9 Pen, as well as full HD RealView displays (up to 500 nits and without touch) and Intel Core i7 processors. The South Korean major introduced a brand new Notebook 9 Pen, along with the 2018 edition of the Notebook 9.

The Notebook 9 Pen guarantees adaptability and compactness. The S Pen can recognize up to 4096 levels of pressure and there is a 0.7mm fine tip.

The 2018 variants of the Samsung Notebook 9 sport a 13.3-inch (900X3T & 900X3U) and 15-inch (900X5T, 900X5U, and Discreet Graphics 900X5T) Full HD RealViewTouch display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. 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 two non-pen models will now carry 75Wh batteries that can be fast-charged by the 65W power adapters included with every unit. The Notebook 9 Pen has a bundled Integrated S Pen, along with a fingerprint sensor, backlit keyboard, and precision touchpad.
