Samsung has unveiled a new version of its 2-in-1 convertible laptop ‘Notebook 9 Pen’, equipped with an improved stylus that can carry out a wider range of detailed tasks and better connectivity options.
The new S-Pen that comes with the notebook, is 2x faster than its previous versions and can automatically change hand-written notes into texts. It also comes with MyScript Nebo application that allows you to not only convert notes into digital text but also convert hand-drawn charts and diagrams.
It supports universal flash storage (UFS) cards, which are five times faster than micro SD cards. Samsung chooses to equip it with NVIDIA’s GeForce MX150 graphic card instead of Intel graphics.
The Notebook features narrower bezels covered with all-metal and aluminum frame, which is available in two new colors, Ocean Blue and Platinum White. It is packed with two Thunderbolt 3 ports for better connectivity and Gigabit WiFi for high-speed internet.
The upgraded Notebook 9 Pen will be available in Korea from December 14 with a price tag of 2.78 million won ($2471). That of the smaller 13.3-inch version is 2.44 million won($1959). This notebook will also expand to USA, China, Brazil, and Hong Kong starting in early 2019.
