Fake leather: It’s not just for Samsung phones, tablets, and Chromebooks anymore. Samsung Germany has unveiled a new premium ultrabook with Samsung’s new favorite material covering the lid.
The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Style is a 15.6 inch laptop with a full HD display, up to 12 hours of battery life, and a fake leather panel fake stitched to the top for some reason (I suppose it does help prevent fingerprint smudges).
It’ll be on display at the CeBIT trade show in Germany this week.
The new laptop has an Intel Core i5 Haswell processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid state drive. It features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and Gigabit Ethernet and features 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI and VGA ports, and an SDXC card slot.
Samsung’s new notebook will ship with Windows 8.1 software, comes in black or white, and while I’m always a bit wary of calling laptops with 15.6 inch displays ultrabooks, it is reasonably thin and light. The laptop measures 14.7″” x 9.8″ x 0.7″ and weighs about 4.3 pounds.
It has a lot in common with the ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. But this model’s a tad thicker and heavier and it has that unusual top coat of fake leather.
There’s no word on whether Samsung plans to offer the ATIV Book 9 Style in the United States.
