  • Samsung Notebook 9 Pen Is Official At CES 2018: A Hybrid Between A Galaxy Note And A Notebook

The device comes with a 360 degree rotating touchscreen along with support for Active Pen which will be sold separately.

The Notebook 9 Pen might be lacking in style, but so far it seems like a solid blend of power and pen-based productivity tools.

The Active Pen is the new Notebook 7 Spin's ideal companion for when users are attending meetings, listening to lectures or participating in conference calls. There is no update on the pricing of the hybrid laptop. The Notebook 9 Pen will be competing against Microsoft's Surface Book. The moments I spent with the Notebook 9 Pen were perfectly snappy and indicated that it would slot into my daily workflow without issue, but this since this still non-final hardware, you'll have to wait for a more complete verdict. The company claims that the Notebook 7 Spin can last all day on a single charge. It is powered by Intel's 8th-generation Core i7 processor and up to 16GB of RAM. There's a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD) for storage needs. It also features a precision touchpad and a backlit keyboard with 1.5mm keystroke and curved keycap. On the connectivity front, the Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018) supports one USB Type-C port, one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, one HMDI port and HP/mic port.


But all of this aside, the real star of the show, as the name of the device itself suggests, is the Pen. Think of its tablet mode as a convenient bonus.

Samsung hasn't revealed its price, but the device has already gone on sale in South Korea. You can record lectures and conversations using Voice Note and jot down notes using the S Pen simultaneously. The United States and other markets would get it in the first quarter of this year.

"Our customers wanted a functional, intuitive device that includes a wide range of their favorite features, and that's what we've delivered with the Notebook 7 Spin (2018)", said YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.
