Samsung’s Galaxy Note line of devices has been quite successful for the company, even after their Note 7 fiasco. Because of that, the company has decided to combine the technology from the smartphone and turn it into a laptop called the Notebook 9 Pen.
The design of the Notebook 9 Pen can be described as uneventful, but it does overall feature a build that is light to hold at 2.2-pounds, thanks to the magnesium alloy called Metal-12. As the name suggests, the device supports Samsung’s SPen, which now features 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. It also features Air Command, which is found on the Galaxy Note 8 when the stylus is removed. There is also a new feature called Voice Note, which uses the far-field microphone to capture conversations and lectures. You also have the option to jot down written notes as the app records audio.
When looking at the specifications, the Notebook 9 Pen includes the 8th-Generation Intel Core i7 processor, and there are models that support up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD. Samsung is currently keeping the pricing and availability details to themselves. As far as ports are concerned, there is a singular USB-C connector, one USB 3.0, a microSD card slot and an HDMI-out.
