Samsung has officially unveiled yet another new model under its family of laptops in the form of Notebook 7 spin. Similar to the previously launched Notebook 9 spin, the new model is a multi-mode convertible laptop that features a 360-degrees hinge
This allows the Notebook 7 spin to be utilized either in a standard notebook position, tent mode, or a tablet. Specifications-wise, the new notebook carries a set of hardware that is akin to mid-range productivity notebook depending on the size of the screen that one chooses.
The 15.6-inch variants are equipped with a sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor running at a maximum clock speed of 3.1 GHz alongside a choice of 12GB and 16GB of DDR4-2133 RAM. Both models also come standard with NVIDIA GeForce 940MX, 2GB DDR3L VRAM, and 1TB hard drive although the model with 16GB RAM does feature additional 128GB solid state drive.
Meanwhile, the 13.3-inch model is equipped with a sixth generation Intel Core i5 processor featuring a maximum clock speed of 2.8 GHz together with 8GB of DDR4-2133 RAM and 1TB hard drive. Regardless of their screen sizes, all three models feature full HD (1920 x 1080) touch display.
Another interesting aspect of the new Notebook 7 spin laptops is that Samsung has also implemented fast charging capabilities into them. Through this particular feature, users are able to receive up of two hours of battery life with just 20 minutes of charging while the 15.6-inch models are able to achieve full charge in 90 minutes and the 13.3-inch variant is able to do so in 100 minutes.
In terms of pricing, the new Notebook 7 spin will start at USD 799.99 (about RM 3,176) once it is released in United States on 26 June 2016. As interesting as the convertible laptop might be, we don’t expect it to appear in our market any time soon though until Samsung Malaysia officially reversed the decision that it made in 2014.
