Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is the new Series 9

Samsung’s high-end ultrabook was previously placed in the Series 9 category. With the introduction of Windows 8 and the inevitable requirement of touchscreen panels, they’ve moved the product into the ATIV series and called it the Samsung ATIV 9 Plus.

The laptop is a mere 13.6mm thin and weighs only 1.39kg (4.06lbs). The QHD resolution display is among the highest in its category, has a 72% color gamut and OCR bonding.

Samsung boasts of a 5.9 second boot time and a mere 0.9 second for wake up. Samsung also promises up to 12 hours of battery life on a single full charge.


The full-sized keyboard is also backlit and the hinge has two normal stops — one at 105-110 degrees for regular use and then another 180-degrees which places it flat on the surface.

Here’s the complete hardware specifications we got so far.

Samsung ATIV 9 Plus specs:
13.3-inch qHD+ display @ 3200×1800 pixels, 275ppi
Gorilla Glass display, 10-finger touch
Intel Core i5-4200U 1.6GHz dual-core processor

    I don’t think its 4.06 lbs. I have the current Series 9 which is less than 3 lbs so I don’t think Samsung will make the latest version a pound heavier.

    its heavier, because of the touchscreen component
