Samsung Notebook 9 Latest News And Specs: The New Notebook 9 Is A 15-inch, Lightweight And Kaby Lake-Powered MacBook Pro Competitor
Samsung is not done yet. The Korean tech company is bent on ending 2016 with a bang, the positive kind, with the release of a couple of new laptops.
Samsung announced on its official website that it has just launched an updated Notebook 9, a 13.3-inch one and another that measures 15 inches, just in time for last-minute Christmas shoppers to consider getting one for the holidays.
The 15-inch Notebook 9 is lighter than expected of a laptop that big. In fact, it is lighter than its predecessor which already got good reviews for being so lightweight. The 13.3-inch Notebook 9 weighs 1.8 pounds making it the lightest of its kind.
Samsung made great strides by developing a 15-inch laptop that weighs only 2.2 pounds. In comparison, the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar weighs 4.02 pounds. Apple's 12-inch MacBook, meanwhile, weighs 2 pounds.
The Latest Processor
The weight and size is not the only good thing going for the new Notebook 9. Samsung used the latest processor in the market to make sure the new laptops will give other devices a run for their money. Both versions of the new Notebook 9 are now powered by Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake CPU.
New Design and Display
The new Notebook 9s also sport a new look with an "ultra-slim bezel and near edge-to-edge display" which Samsung boasts will give the users "more screen to do what you need to do". The full-HD RealView Display also has an Outdoor Mode for use under direct sunlight.
It also has a single shell structure, utilizes the Micro Arc Oxidation (MAO) Rigidity technology, and a display that reclines up to a 180° angle.
More Powerful Battery
A laptop this sleek needs to last a long time. Its battery is estimated to last for 7 hours on a single charge. The battery can get a full charge in just 1 hour and 20 minutes while a 20-minute charge will last for a little over two hours.
The Notebook 9 has the latest USO Type-C port allowing the device to be charged using a phone charger while also allowing faster sharing of data and connectivity with other gadgets.
The new offers from Samsung utilize a built-in fingerprint sensor for added security along with support for Windows Hello which allows users to log in without typing a password.
