Want a Samsung laptop that perfectly matches your Samsung smartphone? Samsung has got you covered with its second-gen Notebook 9 that comes in the same contrasting color scheme as the Galaxy Note 9 that matches a bright yellow colored S-Pen with a gorgeous Ocean Blue finish.

Samsung has just announced the sequel to the Notebook 9 (2018). The first thing that stands out about the all-new 2019 model is its stunning Ocean Blue finish that matches the stablemate Galaxy Note 9 smartphone. Like its powerful handheld brethren, it comes with a contrasting bright yellow S-Pen that neatly tucks away into its aluminum body. The overall design itself is also very sleek and follows a similar design language to the Samsung Chromebook Plus but with a more premium look and feel.

There are two variants of the Notebook 9: a 13.3-inch device that tips the scales at just 2.47 pounds is 14.9mm thick; and a 15-inch model that weighs in at a respectable 3.44 pounds and is 16.9mm thick. To help facilitate its usefulness with the included S-Pen, it features a 360-degree hinge. It also comes with a backlit keyboard. Physical connectivity includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB-C 3.0 port, microSD card slot and a combined 3.5mm headphone and microphone jack. Wireless connectivity, as you would expect, is 802.11ac (or Wi-Fi 5).

Both the 13.3-inch and 15-inch Notebook 9 models are fitted with 1080p displays but differ in processing and graphical power. The smaller model gets an 8th gen Intel Core i5 chip, but only gets integrated graphics. The 15-inch model scores an 8th gen Intel Core i7 chip and Nvidia’s GeForce MX150 GPU with 2 GB of VRAM. Battery life is rated at up to 15 hours for each model while they are both fitted AKG-tuned speakers powered by a ThunderAmp smart amplifier.

The Samsung Notebook 9 series will go on sale early next year with pricing and RAM configurations to be announced closer to the time of availability.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have been particularly interested in all things Apple, but also enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture.
