The Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018) is expected to begin shipping in the USA starting Q1 2018.

The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen was recently announced by the South Korean giant.

The Active Pen is the new Notebook 7 Spin's flawless companion for when users are attending meetings, listening to lectures or participating in conference calls. We don't have any word on battery life yet, but the 13.3-inch version of the Notebook 9 Pen is powered by a 39Wh battery, which is nothing to write home about, while the larger, 15-inch, model has a 75Wh battery.

Samsung today unveiled its new Notebook 7 2018 variant Spin 2 in 1 laptop ahead of CES 2018.

Samsung has announced a new notebook device sporting stylus support and biometric security.

The dimensions of the Spin 7 are 12.4 by 8.5 by 0.73 inches. Windows 10 is standard equipment. It doesn't have an inspiring design as lacks the Wow factor, but it's portable. It's also passive, meaning you don't have to worry about charging the thing. Other notable features include a backlit keyboard and a USB-C port. At the heart, there is an 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor clubbed with 8GB RAM and a 256GB of inbuilt storage.

In terms of specs, the Notebook 9 Pen comes with a 13.3-inch Full HD RealViewTouch display. When you pop the Pen out, you'll get a nifty, Galaxy Note-style "Air Command" menu with different shortcuts, such as Create Note, Smart Select, and Screen Write. It's very similar to the S-Pen, which fans of Samsung's Galaxy Note series will be familiar with, and fits neatly at the base of the device. No pricing has been revealed yet, but it will be available in the U.S. in the first quarter of the year. I also would've preferred a more robust selection of ports - there's one USB-C port, one USB 3.0 port, a microSD slot and an HDMI-out - but here's hoping the final price tag reflects this. Considering it will be competing against Microsoft's Surface Book series, we expect the Notebook 9 Pen to undercut Microsoft's laptop.
