Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018): Features, Specs Of Touchscreen Laptop

Samsung Notebook 9 Pen

Samsung has announced it is unveiling an updated version of the original Notebook 7 Spin that was introduced back in 2016.

The Samsung Notebook 7 Spin is fresh and brings a 360-degree touchscreen as well as an Active Pen (sold separately).

Beyond the S Pen angle, the Notebook 9 Pen is a pretty standard machine.

This is essentially a laptop and a Galaxy Note hybrid. While it does retain some features like a 360-degree rotating touchscreen and a similar design, it also incorporates newer additions like a Windows Hello-compatible fingerprint sensor, Active Pen-enabled UI for taking notes or making sketches, Studio Plus, and a single 13.3-inch model. Like a year ago, the company seems to be saving its big mobile and wearable news for the coming months, instead focusing on its PC offerings. These can later be stored and shared with others using Samsung Cloud.


Samsung's Notebook 7 is powered with a 8th generation Intel i5 Quad Core processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD internal storage and a 13.3 inch Full HD PLS display. Connectivity-wise, you get 1x USB-C, 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, 1x HDMI, and 1x headphone/microphone port. It also features a precision touchpad and a backlit keyboard with 1.5mm keystroke and curved keycap. There is a VGA front camera for video calling.

The notebook runs on Windows 10 operating system and it also comes fingerprint scanner for quick log-in using Windows Hello.

The notebook will be available in select countries starting in the first of quarter of 2018 in the US. "This device meets the needs of today's digital lifestyle, combining work and play with a smart, seamless and personalized experience that connects users with their other devices". 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. This notebook sports an all-metal aluminium chassis and comes with a battery-free S Pen.
