    Here's hoping for a GB12 with 8gb RAM, 256gb SSD (512gb even better), 8th gen i5, AND A YELLOW S-Pen.

    I think there is confusion in the market right now - as I read the Note 9 materials the S-Pen is still a Wacom EMR digitizer - the capacitor based electrical unit (recharge) is only for low power Bluetooth.

    Oh, yeah I didn't mean to imply that the Note 9 wasn't EMR, just that it's something I've gotten used to with the Note series overall.

    Sorry - I wasn't talking about you - the "tech blogosphere" is rampant with the "needs power now" issue.

    I really hope they see the light and add a kickstand to the 2018 model.

    Wish I could add TWO Likes to this post - I had forgotten (or put it out of my mind) how good the kickstand is on the nSP. In fact, how about we just put the Yellow S-Pen in the nSP 2019 and call it a day - now THAT would be a substantial redesign!

    Samsung is committed to that orgami style keyboard and imitating everything Apple. I don't see it in the cards. But, have to agree that it would be a big plus in my book.

    That would actually be my dream machine. I basically like everything else about the nSP. (Actually my dream machine would be an HP Spectre x2 with EMR and a solid kickstand, for the repairability) - can't please techies:p

    I think Microsoft's total attention is squarely on Fortune 500...

    Sure would like to find out what LTE bands it will support - the current LTE model only has a slim subset of AT&T compatible bands.

    On Second Thought - between the design photo and the Windows S find, I'm not sure what the GB12 2018 is really going to offer over and above the GB12 2017. In fact, a clear pattern of
    sitting on your ass" is showing up here:

    Galaxy 8 to Galaxy 9 - meh
    Galaxy Note 8 to Galaxy Note 9 - meh
    GB12 2017 to GB12 2018 - meh

    It's like there was a year-long Chinese New Year shutdown...
