“At Samsung, we have long felt that technology must fit within the lives of the consumer, not the other way around. Over the past several years, the lines between our personal and professional lives have started to blur creating the need for technology that allows us to connect, collaborate and share from anywhere,” said YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “The new Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and enhanced Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) offer our customers premium, powerful and portable devices that provide the tools to securely work from anywhere, breaking the boundaries of previously accepted standards for what a notebook should be.”

As you can see, only one model will have the integrated S-Pen. Hopefully that’s not a mistake on Samsung’s part. We’ll be sure to take a look at it when we get to CES 2018. Our readers in Korea will be luckier than us as availability for Korea starts this month. Read the full Samsung press release below for more details on these devices.
