Samsung is currently holding a press conference in London to announce some new devices coming to their Galaxy and Ativ product lines. A few of these look interesting to say the least!
First up are the ATIV Book 9 Plus and ATIV Book 9 Lite ultrabooks running Windows 8. They both have a 13-inch display and the Lite model has a plastic body whereas the Plus model is aluminum. The Lite has a resolution of 1,366×768 pixels while the Pro has an impressive 3,200×1,800 pixels. The Lite model is powered by a Samsung quad-core processor and features a 256GB SSD hard drive. The Pro model will have an Intel Haswell processor and various SSD storage size options. Both will run Windows 8 Pro.
For those desktop users, there’s also the Ativ One 5 Style. It is an all-in-one touchscreen PC with a 21.5-inch display with 1,920×1,080 pixels and a quad-core processor. As with the other Samsung Windows devices, it’ll also run full Windows 8 Pro.
Next is an interesting little tablet, the Ativ Q. This thing is a hybrid tablet that will run both Windows 8 and Android. You can even pin Android apps to your Windows 8 Start Screen. It features a 13.3-inch display coming in at 3200 x 1800. There’s also an S Pen. It is powered by an Intel Haswell chip, has a magnesium alloy body, and manages to squeeze its convertible hinge mechanism into a form just 13.9 millimeters thick, weighing about 2.8 pounds.
The Ativ Tab 3 features a 10.1-inch screen, runs Windows 8 Pro (not RT), and also features an S pen. The tablet measures 8.2mm thick and weighs 1.2 pounds.
There’s also the Samsung Galaxy NX, which is an LTE and Android powered camera with interchangeable lenses. It comes with a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, 4.8-inch LCD touch display, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM and there’s 16GB of internal storage, as well as a microSD card slot for expanding this up to 64GB.
It comes with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), and you’ll be able to download apps from Google Play.
