At its event in London, Samsung added two new laptops to its lineup: The Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus and the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite.

The current ATIV Book 9 (formerly the Series 9), is basically an improved keyboard away from being the best ultrabook. So we're looking forward to see where Samsung would take the lineā€”since expanding lines with lots of products is what Samsung does.


The new Book 9 Plus runs Intel's latest Haswell chipset, which allows it to get 12 hours of battery life. It weighs 3 pounds and measures 13.6 mm n thickness. The screen has the 3200 x 1800 qHD+ screen, the same as the last model.

The Book 9 Lite is configured differently, with a quad-core CPU (AMD, maybe?). It's 16.9 mm thick, and weighs 3.17 pounds.

As with the other announcements today, these are global so there's no word on pricing or availability.
