Nearly a year after announcing new Windows 10 PCs from its Notebook 9 series including the Notebook 9 Pen convertible, Samsung has unveiled today two new entries to that 2-in-1 PC lineup. The new Samsung Notebook 9 Pen models come with two display size options: 13-inch and 15-inch.
Samsung claims the new convertible models have improved from the previous versions in terms of latency when using the S Pen. Plus, the stylus pen comes with three different pen tips.
The new Notebook 9 Pen features an all-metal and aluminium frame, giving it a premium and durable look, Samsung says. Here's the full list of specs and features of the convertible laptop:
