Samsung has revealed the latest addition to its Notebook 9 laptop series, unveiling an upgraded Notebook 9 Pro that comes with an ’embedded’ S Pen. Here’s everything we know about the device so far, including its specs and key features, plus the latest release date and pricing news.
That means that, unlike previous entries in the 9 series – including the 2016 Notebook 9 Pro – the new Notebook 9 Pro is able to be used as either a laptop or a tablet. The firm’s S Pen stylus slots into the device’s shell and can detect 4000 levels of pressure.
It marks the first time Samsung has integrated S Pen support on a product outside of its mobile lineup. As well as making use of Samsung’s native Air Command annotation software, it also supports Windows Ink, so you’ll be able to use your S Pen across a range of compatible Windows 10 devices.
The Notebook 9 Pro will be available in 13.3-inch and 15-inch models, both of which pack a 1080p touchscreen, Intel Core i7 processor, 256GB SSD, and USB-C fast charging.
The smaller 13.3-inch version gets 8GB of DDR4 RAM, while the 15-inch flavour jumps to 16GB and adds AMD Radeon 450 graphics.
Samsung is keeping mum on the Notebook 9 Pro’s release date and pricing for now, but we’ll be sure to update this page as soon as we learn more.
For reference, last year’s Notebook 9 Pro started from around $1500 (~£1170) but didn’t get an official UK release.
