CES 2018: Samsung Flip and Samsung Notebook 9 Pen Appears

 Samsung, at CES 2018, launched a digital flipchart and new notebook – the Samsung Flip and Notebook 9 – respectively.

With the unveiling of its new Samsung Flip WM55H 4K Digital Flip Chart display, the focus is mostly on easy sharing of documents. This includes annotation, movement and searching, as well as providing the ability for multiple users to create content at once. It comes with a portable, wheel-based stand, adding flexibility to businesses with limited conference space.

Due to its simultaneous multi-user capabilities, up to four different participants can introduce content or annotate directly on screen. They can either use their fingers or a dual-sided pen. Users can also customise his or her own writing style, size and colour.

The Samsung Flip WM55H 4K Digital Flip Chart display offers extensive device compatibility through both wireless connectivity and USB, PC, and mobile ports. An integrated screen-sharing functionality makes this interactive content available on connected PCs, smartphones, and tablets. Users can also import personally-stored content onto the Samsung Flip display’s screen and introduce fresh ideas to the discussion.

The Samsung Flip WM55H 4K Digital Flip Chart offers up to 20 pages of writing space, with embedded search functionalities. The display securely stores all content within a central database, along with an encrypted password protection system. Once logged in, meeting facilitators and participants can download and share featured content through email or traditional printing. These meeting notes can also be saved onto a USB drive or other external sources.

Following its CES 2018 launch and availability in the US and Europe, Samsung will be launching the Samsung Flip WM55H 4K Digital Flip Chart globally later this month. Those keen on getting it may do so through online and brick-and-mortar furniture retailers, as well as traditional professional B2B display channels.

As for the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen, it is a lightweight entry, weighing in only at about 1 kg. The highlight of the product, as evident by the name, is the pen. The Samsung Notebook 9 comes with an S Pen, with 4,096 pressure levels and 0.7mm nib.

Using a 360-degree hinge, the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen can change into tablet mode – essentially making it a convertible. Although not much specs and details are available, Engadget got a first look at the laptop and noted a few features. According to hands-on, the laptop is rocks an Intel 8th Generation Core i7 chipset and comes with a 13.3in 1080p display. There are options for models with up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD. In terms of ports, there is only one USB Type-C port, a USB 3.0 jack, the usual microSD slot, and an HDMI-out.

The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) will be available in select countries starting in December 2017 in Korea, and in the first quarter of 2018 in the U.S.
