Samsung to introduce refreshed version of Notebook 7 Spin

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

A Fingerprint support and Windows Hello features have also been included for increased security to the device.

The latest iteration of the Notebook 7 Spin offers the same form-factor as the original 13.3-inch Spin notebook that Samsung launched in 2016.

Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the Samsung Notebook 7 Spin is its 360-degree rotating screen, which allows the notebook to be folded into a tablet-style format at the user's preference. The accessory is ideal for to draw a sketch or jot down notes on the fly.

This model will be equipped with 8 gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of main memory that resides on the SSD-disk. For security, it uses fingerprint scanner to verify users. The 13.3-inche Full HD lets it transform from a conventional laptop to a convertible.

Samsung announced a trio of new Notebooks to join its 2018 line-up (some of which were already out in Korea), with the occasion of this year's CES: Notebook 9 Pen (image above), Notebook 9, and Notebook 7 Spin. The Notebook 9 Pen will be competing against Microsoft's Surface Book. The company has announced an updated version of the Notebook 7 Spin that comes packed with a quad-core eight-generation Intel Core i5 processor and support for an Active Pen stylus.

But all of this aside, the real star of the show, as the name of the device itself suggests, is the Pen. You can use it doodle, write, sketch, and paint. The Pen itself has a fine, 0.7 mm tip and can recognize 4,096 levels of pressure, which makes it a good tool for artists. 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. This laptop has a durable metal build and thin bezels for compact form factor.

"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)", Samsung Electronics Senior VP of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business YoungGyoo Choi said. There is a VGA front camera for video calling.
