New generation Series 9 incorporates design, performance and functionality with industry firsts.


Press Release: Samsung today announced the launch of their new flagship notebook, the Series 9. Available in two variants, the 13-inch model of the Series 9 is the world’s thinnest and most compact 13-inch notebook while the 15-inch version is the world’s thinnest and lightest 15-inch notebook.

“The new generation Series 9 notebook packages the best of Samsung’s precision engineering and premium design with top class performance and functionality. With its unique craftsmanship, Series 9 is the world’s thinnest, lightest and most compact notebook yet and we are very proud to bring it to the UAE market,” said Denzil D’souza Business Head of Notebooks at Samsung Gulf Electronics. “The first generation of the notebook struck the right chords with our consumers and we are positive that the new Series 9 will be equally well received.”

The body shell is made of 100% aluminum with a matte surface that is comfortable to touch. Using Samsung’s MaxScreen technology, the new Samsung Series 9 offers a vivid 15-inch display fitted into a stylish 14-inch chassis weighing just 1.59kg. The 13-inch Series 9 measures only 12.9mm and weighs just 1.16kg, which is 28 percent smaller than its previous model.

Power and performance is assured with a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor, 4GB/8GB memory and 128GB/256GB SSD. The Samsung New Series 9 allows up to 10 hours of usage on their 15-inch notebook while offering up to 7.3 hours of usage on its 13-inch notebook. In addition, with the Samsung Fast Solutions, the new Series 9 boots in 9.8 seconds while Fast Start ensures a 1.4-second wake-up and Fast Browsing provides a 2-times faster web browsing.

Samsung Series 9 is equipped with a backlit keyboard and display screen that can intelligently adjust its brightness based on the user’s background environment. In addition, the laptops feature an extra-large touch pad that supports a wide range of gesture commands, coupled with 3D imaging touch technology that can increase its touch sensor while reducing sensor error. The touch pad can also sense a variety of gesture commands that allow users to work without having to manually touch the ClickPad.

The new generation Series 9 notebook is available in major retail outlets across the UAE in 13-inch and 15-inch variants. The 13-inch Series 9 is available in i5 processor and i7 processor options and retails at AED 5,299 and AED 5,999 respectively. The 15-inch Series 9 with an i7 processor is available at AED 6,299.
