Both 13-inch and 15-inch models have the same screen resolution, the 1080p FHD. As for the type of panel, some argue that the panel is LED type, but for more details, we have to wait until the device is available for hands-on at some future time.
As for the performance, we will find an Intel Core i7-7500U which is a famous processor platform for this device segment. The processor is able to perform common tasks, although the main purpose for productivity considering the concept that carried this notebook. For the model that have a 15-inch wide-screen have a discrete GPU option (AMD Radeon 540), which is suitable for graphic and video editing designers as it has excellent graphics performance. For the 13-inch model will come with 8GB of RAM, while the 15-inch variant comes with 16GB of RAM, which reinforces our impression that smaller models are geared toward general productivity, whilst greater for creative work. For storage using 256GB SSD.
This latest laptop is also expected to come with the latest WiFi AC standard, along with Bluetooth 4.1, and comes with a 1.5W dual speaker setup. While the S-Pen will compete with other digitizer pens, where the pen has a 0.7mm tip and 4096 pressure sensitivity level. Samsung does not disclose if the technology is compatible with Wacom or N-Trig, but historically, Samsung has worked with Wacom. As usual, Samsung has a backlit keyboard chiclet with a convenient keyboard key size. As for the trackpad large enough size and comfortable to use.
Both models have 2 port USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB Type-C, HDMI, MicroSD, HP / Mic, and DC-in. Surprisingly, both 13 “and 15” models have the same 54Wh battery capacity, but different watt chargers (40W and 60W, respectively).
