Samsung has released a teaser video that shows (parts of it, at least) what’s expected to be a hybrid tablet/notebook that runs on Windows 8. The video itself doesn’t mention any details – unless you saw any practical relevance in the montage of floating clock bits, animated black cubes, da Vinci references, and the “Evolution of Technology” message floating in and out of the screen – but it did show an interesting glimpse of its highlight feature: a slot along the edge that looks to be a built-in stylus.

Also interesting: the quick shot of the notebook lid being opened revealed audio connections and other ports along the edge instead of on the bottom half. Add these clues together, and it looks like Samsung’s going to be unveiling a Windows 8-based notebook that transforms into a detachable tablet. And because this is Samsung we’re talking about, it’s going to feature S-Pen stylus support (Galaxy Note Notebook, anyone?).
Earlier this year, Samsung previewed their Series 5 Hybrid, which was an 11-inch device that featured a tablet that connected to a keyboard dock, an S-Pen stylus and Windows 8 support. If this is it, it’s likely going to feature an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2MP front cam, and a 10-hour battery. No word on an official launch date yet, but Samsung did mention that the “time is near for the big reveal” on the video‘s description, so it shouldn’t be far off.
