Next up is the more premium Samsung Notebook 9 Pen (pictured top), which is already on sale in the firm’s Korean homeland.

Surrounded by a full-metal jacket, it has a 360-degree hinge and a 13.3-inch Full HD touchscreen display.

Power-hungry users will get an 8th-Gen Core i7 processor and up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM.

Samsung is also promising S-Pen support, which is built into the laptop itself. The company says the S Pen can now “recognise 4,096 levels of pressure with a fine 0.7mm tip and convenient tilt detection to allow a more natural writing and drawing experience.”

As with the Galaxy Note series, when the S-Pen is withdrawn, the Air Command menu will automatically launch.

Both have the same Core i7 processors and upto 16GB RAM, 1080p displays and 720p cameras. The laptops have the option of a 1TB SSD and massive 75Wh batteries.
