Samsung's 'Notebook 9' Will Be The Most Portable Laptop In The Planet
Samsung has enhanced and improved its Notebook 9 laptops, making them lighter and powering them with the powerful Intel i7 Kaby Lake processor. The South Korea-based company recently unveiled the specs of the revamped model right before the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that will be held in 2017 in Las Vegas. Samsung has also claimed that that the 13.3-inch version of the Notebook 9 is going to be the lightest version, as well as being the lightest laptop available on the market once it rolls out.
Specs and features of the Notebook 9
The upcoming Notebook 9 offers a curved display that features a 1,920 x 1080p screen resolution to go along with its visibly thinner and lighter body. The Notebook 9, which is said to be running on Windows 10, will also be joining the bandwagon of small to zero bezels gadgets with its incredibly slim-bezel edges.
The Notebook 9 will boast amazing performance
According to several online reports, the 15-inch variant of the Notebook 9 is going to weigh exactly two pounds, while the smaller 13.3-inch version will weigh only 1.8 pounds. The Notebook 9 is also going to feature some very powerful performance with its Intel i7 processor, 8GB worth of RAM, and a 256GB hard disk. Multiple reports have also claimed that the 13.3 variant will come with an i5 processor and 16GB worth of RAM.
Ports and charging life
It also comes along with every type of common ports such as a single Type-C USB port, two 3.0 USB ports, a microSD slot, and an HDMI port. A USB 2.0 port is only found on the 15-inch version. A Type C USB is able to fully charge the Notebook 9 in only 80 minutes.
You can also plug it in for only 20 minutes, and it will now suffice for 2.1 hours' worth of usage. However, the company only promises that the Notebook 9 assures seven hours of battery life, which is not bad because of its quick-charging feature.
Other notable features
The Notebook 9 is also very attractive with its backlit keyboard and envelope-sized body. Other additional features would also include a fingerprint scanner that is definitely going to rival with Apple's TouchID platform.
Weight and competition
The older version of the 15-inch variant also weighs 2.9 pounds. However, both old and new versions of the Notebook 9 cannot compete with Apple's current flagship laptop, the MacBook Pro, which only weighs 2 pounds. The Notebook 9's gray and silver shade makes it less of a clone for Apple's notebook.
Pre-order date and Price for the Notebook 9
As confirmed by recent reports, pre-orders for the upcoming Samsung Notebook 9 would begin on Monday, December 26, 2016, via the company's online store, which is at store.samsung.com/sec. The 13.3-inch variant will cost about $1,500, while its bigger variant will be sold for $1,590.
With all that being said, it looks like the Samsung Notebook 9 is set on being the most portable and convenient laptop that anyone can have once it officially rolls out.
Apple iPhone 8 Vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Battle Of The Future Flagships: Latest Updates On Specs, Price And More
The competition between Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Apple's iPhone 8 next year is going to be epic in the smartphone industry. Samsung is looking to bounce back and gain people's trust again after it's tragic Note 7 failure. Apple, on the other end, is looking to get back on track with yet another major smartphone refresh. With all things said, here are some head-to-head comparisons between the two upcoming juggernaut handsets.
The Damages Caused By 'Galaxy Note 7' To Samsung, How Severe Is It?
2016 was a very tough year for Samsung. Thanks to the exploding battery issues with the recently discontinued Galaxy Note 7, Samsung was forced to issue an expensive global recall to compensate for the problem. The solution didn't work so well and a second recall was initiated, along with the production of the handset ending. The Note 7 was projected to be one of the biggest-selling smartphones of the year. Instead, it became a major problem that Samsung had to discontinue it once and for all.
What Is The Samsung Galaxy S8 'All-Screen Design'?
One of the biggest questions of 2017 will be how Samsung recovers from its disastrous Note 7 failure, and Google's triumphant Pixel launch this year.

Will The Samsung 'Galaxy S8' Imitate The 'iPhone 8' Design And Functionality?
According to several online reports, Samsung could potentially follow the Apple's paths and be on the verge of planning to ditch the headphone jack on its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone. If so, it would definitely force users to adopt to wireless headphones, or potentially utilize a USB Type-C compatible pair, if that's what the new handset will use for charging.
