Fujitsu launched the Lifebook U938 back in January this year, but this was not a worldwide release, as it was just localized for Japan. The good news is that the enterprise-oriented Lifebook U938 was just announced to make its way to the North American countries later this month.

The 13-inch U938 ultrabook weighs less than 1.8 lbs and has an overall thickness of 0.6-inch. Processor options include the i5-8250U/i5-8350U/i7-8650U CPUs coupled with either 12 GB or 20 GB of DDR4 RAM (1 DIMM slot + 4 GB onboard). The storage options are very diversified, and users can opt to include SATA III M.2 SSDs with 256/512 GB capacities (optional OPAL cables) or NVMe SSDs with 256/512 GB capacities. All versions come preinstalled with Windows 10 Pro.

Users can also choose among a glossy FHD IPS touch display and a slightly brighter non-glare IPS display. The aforementioned CPUs integrate Intel’s UHD Graphics 620 GPUs.

Other specs include:
•    HD webcam
•    Stereo speakers + Realtek ALC255 audio codec
•    Dual array mics
•    Optional LTE cat. 6 modem
•    Wi-fi + Bluetooth 4.2 + GbE
•    Fingerprint sensor + palm vein sensor
•    Connectors: mic in + headphone out, 2 x USB 3.0 Type-A (1x for charging), 1x USB 3.1 Type-C, 1 x HDMI, GbE jack, SIM card slot, SD card reader, SmartCard reader

There are a few battery options, which can add to the total weight of the notebook:
•    2 cell, 25 Whr battery + non-touch display – 1.76 pounds and 7 hours battery life
•    4 cell, 50 Whr battery + non-touch display – 2.03 pounds and 13 hours battery life
•    4 cell, 50 Whr battery + touchscreen display – 2.09 pounds and 9 hours battery life

Prices for the different versions of the LifeBook U938 have not been disclosed as of yet.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
