Samsung's Notebook 9 line of laptops is already well known for its superb portability and elegant design. Samsung just unveiled two new additions to it a 15-inch one (not 15.6) and a 13.3-inch version.
The smaller of those weighs just 817g, while the 15-inch Notebook 9 bumps that up to 984g. The refined design is also very slick and slim, with almost bezelless, nearly edge-to-edge displays. Samsung claims its Micro Arc Oxidation (MAO) Rigidity technology offers improved structural integrity, thermal and shock resistance. The bodies themselves measure 347.9 X 229.4 X 14.9mm on the 15-inch and 309.4 X 208 X 13.9mm on the 13-inch one.
The screens come in FullHD resolution with 95% sRGB coverage, 178 degree viewing angles and a special outdoor brightness boost mode of 500 nits.
CPU options go all the way up to a 7th generation Core-i7. Between it, the 30 Wh battery, rated for up to 7 hours and a top-off of just 80 minutes and the internal cooling, we can only expect most other components will be soldered on. Both Notebook 9 models come standard with 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 RAM, depending on the CPU. As for storage, the smaller one has a 256 GB SATA 3 SSD out of the box, while the 15-inch bumps it up to a faster PCIe, NVMe one of the same capacity.
Other goodies include dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1, two 1.5W speakers and liberal I/O, including a USB Type-C port, full-sized HDMI, and a mircoSD card reader. There is still no word on pricing or availability for the refreshed models.
