A few of Samsung’s latest phones and tablets include faux-leather backs. You can find them on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. Soon you may also be able to buy a Samsung notebook with a fake leather finish.

samsung ativ book 9 style

A member f the Korean forum Seeko spotted a new notebook with the same faux-leather material attached to the lid. It’s reportedly called the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Style, and it basically looks like someone took the ATIV Book 9 Plus ultrabook and stitched a leather cover to the lid for some reason.

Other features include four speakers instead of the usual two. This laptop may also be larger than the 13.3 inch ATIV Book 9 Plus — another picture at Seeko suggests the notebook will have a 15.6 inch display, an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 Haswell processor 8GB of storage, NVIGIA GT750M graphics, and up to 1TB of storage.

There’s no word on how much this model will cost, whether it’ll be available world-wide, or why anyone would want a fake leather lid on their laptop.

  1. Samsung should rather focus on updating their ultrabook line! I hoped to buy an Samsung ultrabook with an Haswell processor for Xmas, but apart from the ridiciously expensive there was nothing!

  2. Psion did it 15 years ago, although they used real leather — the netBook. I have one sitting on my shelf right now. A beautiful machine.

  3. Leave it to Samsung to make anything look tacky. Their next design will probably be a Leopard print fake fur coating.

  4. Egad. Now we have phones with wood (fake or real I don’t recall) and tablets with leather. What next, a bone stylus?
    Sheesh, we’re not Apple customers, silly marketeers!
