Notebook 9 Pen with Powerful Built-in S Pen

Notebook 9 Pen 2019 continues to feature a 360-degree hinged display that users can adjust to any angle for their convenience, transforming it into a premium 2-in-1 mobile tablet PC.

Samsung S Pen’s 0.7-mm fine tip is built to recognize 4,096 levels of pressure and also features tilt detection. Three different switchable tips allow users to express the finest details flawlessly in every occasion, including writing, sketching and painting.

 

In addition, the built-in MyScript Nebo app provides users with a free three-month trial that not only allows conversion of notes into digital text, but also conversion of hand-drawn charts and diagrams into cleaner versions, lending convenience to a variety of different uses. Live Message supported by Notebook 9 Pen enables users to create and save personalized animated GIFs, and send them through various social networking platforms or apps. Also, Notebook 9 Pen’s exclusive Voice Note with Pen app is great for recording audio and creating written memos simultaneously.
