Samsung last week introduced its first “Always Connected” PC in partnership with Qualcomm, which was the company’s first to be powered by a Qualcomm chipset. Today, the company has introduced another portable laptop in its home country (South Korea) dubbed Notebook Flash.
This is a regular laptop with a stylish design, a high-end wireless LAN card, and up-to-date connectivity. It has a retro-styled keyboard with curved keycaps that gives it a distinct classic appearance, making it more noticeable, subtle not flashy, amidst the company laptop portfolio.
The new Notebook Flash features a 13.3-inch Full HD display with wide-viewing angle. The wireless connectivity is handled by Intel’s 802.11 ac 2X2 Gigabit wireless LAN card, which according to the firm can deliver up to 1.7Gbps of download speed when transferring files. Since it will be arriving to KT carrier in Korea first, Samsung said KT is optimized to deliver the best internet user experience and Wi-Fi service for the device.
Furthermore, an enhanced security is provided with the laptop. Running Windows 10 OS out-of-the-box, the Notebook Flash supports Windows Hello biometric security that makes use of the onboard fingerprint scanner for securing users data.
Moreover, Samsung also implemented its proprietary “secret folder” security that let users secure their personal files in a secret folder that can only be accessed by them through authentication. Among the connectivity presents are USB Type-C port and 3.5mm headphones jack. It supports Universal Flash Storage (UFS) cards.
The Notebook Flash comes in Linen White,
Twill Charcoal, and Soft Coral cover colors. The “NT531XBB-K01BB” model is exclusively released on KT and it is already available for KRW 8,000 per month on years contract. The “NT530XBB-K24W” model made for the global market will be available for 820,000 won (US$715).
