Introduced back in 2017, the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro ultra-slim convertible has been redesigned for those "looking for a beautiful device that brings out their own unique style and can keep up with the pace of everyday life." Powered by an Intel Core i7-8565U processor, this portable is expected to hit the market in the coming weeks.

The Samsung Notebook 9 Pro convertible is back with an entirely new design and updated hardware. Unveiled at CES, this refreshed 2-in-1 ultra-slim portable features an Active Pen — bundled in the standard retail package — with no less than 4,000 pressure sensitivity levels, a premium-looking metal case with diamond-cut edges, but its technical specs keep it in the mid-range sector of the market. 

Without further ado, these are the highlights of the new Samsung Notebook 9 Pro:

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-8565U
  • Memory/Storage: 8 GB LPDDR3; 256 GB PCIe NVMe SSD and microSD slot
  • Display: 13.3-inch full HD touchscreen with 350 nits brightness
  • Graphics: Intel UHD 620 integrated adapter
  • Connectivity: 2 x Thunderbolt 3, USB Type-C, 3.5 mm audio jack 
  • Operating system: Windows 10 Home
  • Weight/Dimensions: 2.84 pounds; 12.1 x 8.1 x 0.55 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: 55 Wh with Fast Charging; up to 14 hours

In addition to the above, the new Samsung Notebook 9 Pro also sports two 1.5 W speakers and a Thunder Amp, a fingerprint scanner, an HD webcam, and a backlit keyboard.

Leaving aside Samsung's statement saying that this machine "will be available in early 2019," there is no official information about the pricing and availability of the Notebook 9 Pro yet. We will probably hear more in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
