Samsung has announced a new convertible laptop dubbed the Notebook 7 Spin. The laptop has been in the rumor mill for quite some time now, but as it seems, the company has finally decided to break the egg.
Even though it is a Windows 10 laptop, the Samsung Notebook 7 Spin can be converted into a huge tablet and used as a handheld device. Samsung will be offering the device in two screen sizes of 13.3 inches and a larger 15.6 inches. All two devices will feature a 1080p resolution display panel, which is also touch enabled.
This is huge for Samsung as more and more OEM start turning to hybrid tablet and laptops as they try to bridge the gap between handheld devices and computers. The world has been inclined towards mobile devices that include smartphones and tablets. However, to try and pull pack the masses to the PC world, OEMs such as Microsoft and Samsung have been coming in with gadgets that can double as tablets and PCs.
The Notebook 7 Spin is the latest to join this party. The laptop brings the ability to fold it into a tablet and on making another fold, you will have a full laptop at hand. The smaller 13.3-inch variant comes with an Intel i5 SoC whereas the larger variant comes with a faster i7 processor from the same manufacturer. Both units are packed with a NVIDIA 940MX graphics unit and they all come with a USB Type-C port as well as three USB Type-A ports, where two are v2.0 and one is v3.0. As for the Ethernet port, you will only find it on the larger Notebook 7 Spin, but both of them are fitted with fast charging capabilities.
As for the memory options, you will come across a RAM of 8GB on the smaller 13.3-inch variant whereas the larger variant comes with a RAM of either 12GB or 16GB. Coming down to the storage, the Notebook 7 Spin comes with an onboard storage of 128GB SSD as well as 1TB mechanical storage drive, but this is for the high-end model.
The new Samsung Notebook 7 Spin will be available for purchase from the official Samsung Store as well as Best Buy starting at $799.
