Samsung has announced two new Windows 10-based laptops. The two laptops, Notebook 7 and Notebook 7 Force, look a lot like Apple’s MacBook Pro notebooks and will ship in 13-inch and 15-inch display sizes. Samsung says the new Notebook 7 laptop is built for everyday usage while the Notebook 7 Pro features high-end specifications ideal for content creators. Samsung’s new laptops will begin shipping sometime later this year. There is no word on the India availability right now.
The new slim laptops from Samsung feature diamond-cut edges and displays with tiny bezels. Samsung says the laptops will first start shipping in South Korea and Hong Kong, followed by the US and Brazil.
