MSI has announced the launch of two new ultrabooks, a new generation MSI Pen stylus and a new generatio USB-C docking device, in India. At its launch, MSI has largely claimed focus on the overall design that it offers with its laptops — reiterating its focus on the golden ratio rule of design. The launch brings two new business laptops to India — the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo and the MSI Summit E16 Flip. The laptops feature up to 11th generation Intel Core i7 processors, 16:10 display panels, up to 20-hour rated battery life and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity support, among other features.
MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo: Key specifications
The MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo features a 13.4-inch full HD+ panel with 16:10 aspect ratio, with touchscreen and MSI Pen input support. It will come in various SKUs, with processors ranging up to the 11th generation Intel Core i7-1185G7 CPU with Intel Iris X graphics. The Summit E13 Flip Evo also features up to 32GB LPDDR4x 4267MHz RAM, and up to 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD storage. In terms of wireless connectivity, the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo features up to Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 standards. Wired ports include four USB-C Thunderbolt 4 slots with support for USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, and PD charging. Users also get a single USB-A 3.2 port, and a concealed microSD card reader.
The MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo gets a 70Whr battery, measures 14.9mm in thickness and weighs 1.35kg. It is available in a CNC aluminium machined chassis, which is built in Pure White and Ink Black colour shades. The laptop also features a 720p HD webcam with a dedicated webcam shutter switch for added privacy.
MSI Summit E16 Flip: Key specifications
The Summit E16 Flip, meanwhile, is claimed to be the “thinnest 16-inch 2-in-1 laptop with powerful performance”, if that’s the kind of laptop you were looking to buy. Its chassis features what MSI calls “streamlined diamond cut edges”, done in a bid to make the 2-in-1 laptop look super sleek, despite featuring a 16-inch 16:10 full HD+ display panel. While the exact CPU and GPU combinations have not been revealed, the MSI Summit E16 Flip will run on 11th generation Intel Core processors, and MSI claims that it also features “the latest Nvidia graphics”. It also features a new cooling design that MSI calls ‘Dynamic Cooler Boost’, which apparently generates up to 40 percent lesser noise than competitors.
MSI Pen, USB-C Docking Station Gen2: Specifications
Among the other launches is the MSI Pen, which the company claims is the first stylus ever to win a CES 2021 award. The stylus features MPP 2.0 technology, along with 4096 levels of pressure point detection for accurate scribbling on compatible displays. It also bundles in a presentation remote, and a Pen Control setup that allows customisable presentation functions.
Meanwhile, the MSI USB-C Docking Station features one USB-A 2.0 legacy port, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 ports, one USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, one DisplayPort 1.4 port and a full-size HDMI port, therefore being a connectivity hub for all purposes including laptop charging, as well as connecting multiple displays for a home video conferencing setup.
Prices for all the new MSI products will be announced in the days to come.
