The Notebook 7 Spin (2018) will retain the 360-degree rotating touchscreen from the first generation, apart from adding several new features such as Active Pen, and fingerprint security through Windows Hello.

The Notebook 9 Pen has a sturdy all-metal magnesium aluminum design and runs Windows 10.

The Notebook 9 Pen was originally announced about a month ago along with a couple of other products. However, the Active Pen will not be bundled along with the notebook. There is no update on the pricing of the hybrid laptop. The moments I spent with the Notebook 9 Pen were perfectly snappy and indicated that it would slot into my daily workflow without issue, but this since this still non-final hardware, you'll have to wait for a more complete verdict. The display itself is alright, with nice colors, but the maximum brightness, which varies between 500 nits for the 15-inch Notebook 9 and 450 nits for one of the versions of the 13-incher, isn't really all that great for use under direct sunlight.

The smaller battery may have helped Samsung keep the device lightweight, but it would also affect its battery life. It has a backlit keyboard, precision touchpad, and a fingerprint sensor. Processing power is courtesy of an Intel Core i5 chip and 8GB of RAM. The device offers up to 512GB storage and Intel HD Graphics. Connectivity-wise, you get 1x USB-C, 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, 1x HDMI, and 1x headphone/microphone port. Think of its tablet mode as a convenient bonus. As for price, Samsung didn't make any announcements. The accessory is ideal for to draw a sketch or jot down notes on the fly. You can use it doodle, write, sketch, and paint. We'll expect it to last at least a full workday, if not more.

"Our customers wanted a functional, intuitive device that includes a wide range of their favorite features, and that's what we've delivered with the Notebook 7 Spin (2018)", Samsung Electronics Senior VP of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business YoungGyoo Choi said.
