Samsung for the first time has offered the S-Pen technology on the notebook lineup and this in itself is a telltale sign that Samsung is taking the ultrabook segment seriously. The South Korean giant has launched the new Notebook 9 Pro and it comes with a 360-degree hinge that will let you rotate and use it in both tablet or notebook mode. Like the other S Pen supported devices, Samsung is equipping the Notebook 9 Pro with a space to store the S Pen.
The new S-Pen that has debuted with the Notebook 9 Pro offers 4,000 levels of pressure and also offers tilt detection, just like the recently announced Surface Pro. Samsung’s Air Command will help you draw, doodle and edit documents with relative ease and thankfully the S-Pen stylus can be used with other applications as well, including the Windows Ink.
The Samsung Notebook 9 Pro will be available in two screen sizes 13.3-inch (FHD) and 15-inch (FHD) and will be powered by the latest Intel processors ranging up to Core i7. The 13.3-inch variant will be offered with 8GB of RAM while the 15-inch variant will be offered with 16GB of RAM. Storage options on both the devices will include 256GB SSD while the 15-inch variant will come with AMD Radeon 450 as well.
Samsung has also included a Windows Hello camera (for facial recognition) at the front and it comes with a USB Type-C slot that supports fast charging. On the connectivity front, the Notebook 9 Pro offers two USB 3.0 slots, HDMI port and a microSD card slot for extra storage. Samsung is yet to announce the pricing for both the models and in all likelihood they will be released by the end of the year.
