Samsung has introduced two new ridiculously light and beautiful Notebook 9 laptops at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 in Las Vegas.
The Notebook 9 laptops are in two variants – a 13-inch and a larger 15-inch variant. The 13-inch variant packs a 13-inch display with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels while the 15-inch variant sports a 15 inches FHD display with the same resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels.
The full-HD display is touted to provide superior brightness with a wide angle and low-reflective screen. It is expected to offer a comfortable viewing experience from a variety of positions.
Both variants have various designs, including Material, Color Mg, Iron Silver and Modern Pink. The laptops are both pretty light – the 15-inch variant weighs 1.29 kg while the 13-inch variant weighs a mere 840 grams.
The Notebook 9 laptops under the hood are run by Intel’s SkyLake-U processors, and are available in Intel’s Core i5 or Core i7 processors. They also come with either 4GB or 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
As for the internal storage, Samsung is offering two options for both of the Notebook 9 variants: you can get 128 GB (SSD) storage or 256 GB (SSD) storage which is pretty good.
The 15-inch Notebook 9 comes with a 5,120 mAh battery while the 13-inch variant packs a 4,000 mAh battery.
The 15-inch variant can provide battery life for up to 12 hours, and it also comes with the Quick Charging feature which enables it to charge fully in just 20 minutes. The 13.3-inch version offers up to 10 hours of battery life on one charge.
The Notebook 9 also come with enhanced security. It sports the new Security CAM feature which allows users to take and send photos through an equipped camera to a pre-registered email in case of theft.
Other security features including Pattern Log-in, Secret Screen, and Record Block help users to protect their private files and information.
Samsung says the Notebook 9 will be available with Windows 10 Pro in early 2016, but didn’t mention anything about pricing details.
