  • Samsung updates its Notebook 9 ultrabooks with even bigger batteries

It thus makes flawless sense for the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) to be unveiled today ahead of commercial launches in Korea later this same month, followed by United States expansions in the first quarter of the new year.

The Notebook 9 Pen is a 13.3-inch 2-in-1 PC, built in a metal chassis with a premium magnesium alloy design called Metal12. The Notebook 9 Pen would include Intel's 8 generation Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM and 512GB of SSD storage.

The Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) comes in two screen sizes of 13.3 inches and 15 inches.

The Samsung Notebook 9 models come with tilting screens and can be configured with up to 16GB DDR4 RAM. "The 15" model has a Thunderbolt 3 port, but the others have to make do with a regular USB Type-C port on top of the USB 3.0, HDMI, and audio combo jacks that all three machines have in common. "It features a 13.3" Samsung RealView touch-enabled display with 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and 95% sRGB coverage. Expect US pricing info at CES 2018.

That's a fancy way of saying that Samsung's latest laptops are thin, light, and powered by the latest 8th Generation Core i7 quad-core processor (upgraded from Kaby Lake), paired with dual-channel memory. The only difference between the 13-inch and 15-inch model is that the 15-inch model also features NVIDIA's GeForce MX150 graphics card.

It features a 75Wh Hexacell battery which is one of the most powerful batteries that Samsung has ever equipped with a notebook. It also has a 360-degree hinge that allows users to convert it into a tablet or prop it up into tent mode. Both variants of the Notebook 9 offer the same Metal12 frame as the Notebook 9 Pen, along with the Full HD displays.

If 8GB memory isn't enough for the GPU, you can get it configured with 16GB instead. Whether this means it'll launch this week or next, at least we're getting close.

The refined S Pen lets users write, sketch, paint, doodle and more. It is worth adding that Samsung refreshed its Notebook 9 series in January this year and launched the Notebook 9 Pro in May.

The Notebook 9 Pen fully supports Windows Hello with a built-in fingerprint scanner, but it also has an infrared camera front-facing camera.

Like the Notebook 9 (2018), the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen will arrive in select countries, including South Korea, sometime later this month.
