Samsung Electronics today announced the new Notebook 9 Pen, a premium 2-in-1 PC with a built-in S Pen designed to advance creativity.
The Notebook 9 Pen is built with an all-metal and aluminium frame and an edge-to-edge diamond cut metal finish. It comes in an Ocean Blue color.
With Notebook 9 Pen, it’s easy to jot notes, draw and even control the PC. The S pen reacts the moment it touches the display—as if putting an actual pen to paper—thanks to reduced latency of up to 2x from the previous model. The S Pen options are also customizable, allowing you to swap in your choice of three different pen tips to get the drawing feel you prefer.
S Pen comes in the box, never needs to be charged and is stored directly into the PC. You can also download the MyScript Nebo App from the Microsoft Store for a free three month trial to not only convert notes into digital text, but also convert hand drawn charts and diagrams, into cleaner versions.
The Notebook 9 Pen is powered by an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor. With fast-charging capabilities, you can quickly top-up to 15hours of battery life. And with face and fingerprint log-in, you can pick up right where you left off. The device also offers flexibility with its expandable storage, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, and next-generation Gigabit WiFi support.
The laptop also supports universal flash storage (UFS) cards, which are five-times faster than micro SD cards. It is equipped with NVIDIA's GeForce MX150 graphic card.
The display offers narrower bezels than its predecessor along with vibrant colors and brightness levels. Other features include speakers tuned by AKG along with a new ThunderAmp smart amplifier technology.
The Notebook 9 Pen 13" and 15" will be available in the U.S. in 2019. The 15" version with Intel Core i7 Processor comes with a price tag of 2.78 million won (US$2,471). The smaller 13.3" version is 2.44 million won.
