The Notebook 9 Pen comes with a 13-inch display, Intel's 8th Generation processor with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage with a 39Wh battery. The 15-inch model is a bit more flexible since its single USB Type-C port also supports Thunderbolt 3 and it also has an extra USB 2.0 port. As for the build, all four PCs are made using magnesium aluminium alloy called Metal12. The company will also include its Samsung Link Sharing transfer tool for sharing things like documents and photos with another device. It's a 2-in-1 PC that comes with the same Metal12 chassis that's on the Notebook 9 (2018). This is for those who need a more graphics power than what the Intel integrated solution offers. It features a 360-degree hinge that will allow its users to conveniently use it as a laptop as well as a tablet. The S Pen has a 0.7mm tip so users can even use the screen as a sketchpad to draw illustrations. The front-facing IR camera supports facial authentication through Windows Hello.

System builders have been releasing new and refreshed laptop models built around Intel's recently launched 8th Generation Core processor family for mobile (Kaby Lake Refresh or Kaby Lake-R, not to be confused with Coffee Lake on the desktop).
