Samsung Notebook 9 main

Oddly enough, while the May 2017-announced Notebook 9 Pro wielded a productivity-enhancing S Pen in both 13 and 15-inch variants, there's only one new stylus-sporting configuration. The device makes use of the 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor paired with up to 16GB RAM and up to 512GB storage space. The new notebooks from Samsung are portable productivity powerhouses with high-quality performance and long battery life.

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 Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) will be available first in South Korea and in select countries sometime later this month, while the United States will get them sometime during the first quarter of 2018.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Notebook 9 Pen features a 13.3-inch display with Full HD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Expect US pricing info at CES 2018.

Like the previous Notebook 9 series, the model has a 360-degree hinge with a touch screen and includes Samsung's Air Command software for drawing, taking notes and editing documents, the company said.

Samsung has officially unveiled a new 2-in-1 device called Notebook 9 Pen along with three variants of the Notebook 9 (2018). This model also comes with its very own S Pen stylus, which can be tucked away on the front edge of the keyboard.

The Notebook 9 (2018) will be running on Windows 10 and it will be available with up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of SSD storage. As for ports, the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen comes with one USB Type-C port, one USB 3.0 port, one HDMI ports and a Dollars card slot.

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. It's also slated for release in the USA during the first quarter of 2018. Unlike the other models, the Notebook 9 Pen is made with a premium magnesium aluminum, which makes it lighter than regular aluminum.

Samsung has announced the upgraded version of the Notebook 9 and the new Notebook 9 Pen.
