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.

"The most promoted product out of the lot is the new Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13" which is the same variant that comes bundled with the smart pen and capable of doing a lot of additional activities apart from the 2 in 1 PC which converts into a tablet whenever required.

Samsung's new Notebook 9 Pen is probably the most interesting out of the three new laptops. 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 Notebook 9 comes with 13.3 and 15 inch display with Nvidia GeForce MX 150 graphics and 6.2mm bezels around 1080p display. All their laptops will feature fingerprint scanners and Windows Hello support, but only the 15-inch laptop will support a Thunderbolt port. Unlike the other models, the Notebook 9 Pen is made with a premium magnesium aluminum, which makes it lighter than regular aluminum. That makes them, at the heaviest, only slightly heavier than the Notebook 9 Pen, though you don't get the added convenience of that 360-degree display and integrated battery-free stylus. Usually, such announcements take place at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) during January in Las Vegas. The 75W Hexacell battery should include a battery life boost, but the company is only committing to a vague "always-on power", with fast charging support for when you need to top the battery up.

Unfortunately, Samsung has yet to reveal a price for this handsome computing device. The rest of the line up comes with a 13.3-inch Full-HD screen and two 15-inch Full-HD screens. This model also comes with its very own S Pen stylus, which can be tucked away on the front edge of the keyboard.

Samsung Notebook 9 will also allow you to flip around, to use them in various modes. All the four models will be powered by Intel 8th-gen Core i7 processors along with Intel Graphics. 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 United States dollars card slot. The stylus pen which is going to accompany the device will also include IR scanning for facial recognition.

Like the Notebook 9 (2018), the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen will arrive in select countries, including South Korea, sometime later this month. Pricing for the Notebook 9 Pen hasn't been revealed either.
