Samsung is releasing upgraded new Windows 10 notebooks with the 8th generation Intel Core processors between next week and March. We mentioned the Intel Core i5 powered Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018) yesterday, due for release on March 4. But the more cutting edge Samsung Notebook 9 Pen with Intel Core i7 and integrated pen will be released on March 5, now taking orders from Samsung: https://www.samsung.com/notebook-series-9/notebook-9-pen-13-3–np930qaa-k01us/
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 2018 (NP930QAA-K01US) has an integrated 4096 pressure level sensitive Samsung S Pen that runs without batteries, has Windows Ink and Air Command set up for it, and comes with far-field mics too that can be used with Voice Note for students or people attending meetings, when they need to both record and write at the same time.
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 2018 is a 13.3-inch Windows 10 notebook, and the standard for these is usually Full HD, with the Notebook 9 Pen being no exception with its 1920 x 1080 resolution display with up to 500 nits brightness, which is pretty good for outdoor use.
The main specs that powers it are the 8th gen. 1.8 GHz – 4.0 GHz Intel Core i7 processor, with 8GB DDR4 RAM (can be upgraded to 16GB), with a 256GB SSD PCIe storage unit.
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen battery life is rated at a good 9 hours with a 5120 mAh battery. But unlike most notebooks or laptops, this notebook can also be charged by a power bank though the USB ports (USB Type-C and USB 3.0 ports).
The other specs are acceptable too for a notebook, with a fingerprint reader, IR camera for facial recognition login, complete 2×2 Wi-Fi cover, a 720p front webcam, two 1.5 Watt stereo speakers, a HDMI port, a backlit keyboard with a 80 keys spill-resistant keyboard.
The design of Samsung’s Windows 10 notebook is traditional but modern, with narrow bezels, round edges with something of a tablet feel almost, a 360 degree revolving design that allows it to be set up in tent mode, and a lightweight silver metal body.
