Samsung Notebook 7 Spin Specs, Prices, Release Date
The latest Samsung convertible notebook comes with Skylake Core i5 or i7 processor. It’s decked with a 1 terabyte hard drive to support all videos files stored into the device. Features include an internal dual array digital microphone, a combination of an audio jack, SoundAlive, webcam, 1.5-watt stereo speakers, an island-type backlit keyboard and more.
There’s also SSD storage options for users who prefer to increase system speed and performance over storage capacity. There’s no update on the RAM yet, but we’re guessing it’s going to be upgradeable.
Both the variants have an HDMI port, a USB-C port along with three USB-A ports. The 15-inch model does with Ethernet, though.
The 13.3-inch model is decked with 8GB of RAM, and there are 12GB and 16GB variants of the 15-inch model. The 15-inch Samsung Notebook 7 Spin comes with 128GB SSD to support standard 1TB HDD.
The Samsung Windows 10 convertible notebook also comes with fast charging support. Both the variants include a 45Wh battery. The laptop – tablet will get extra two hours of battery life just after 20 minutes of fast charging. Boy, we’re looking forward to that!
The total charge time on the 13.3-inch variant is about 100 minutes, while on the 15-inch variant it is about an hour and a half.
And as expected, the Windows 10 convertible notebook comes with a spin feature – 360-degree display that can be used in all - tent, tablet or the regular clamshell modes.
