RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. -- July 15, 2013

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced the U.S. launch of the ATIV
Book 9 Lite. Taking a page from the celebrated and iconic design of the Book 9
family of PCs, Samsung continues to deliver on the promise of ATIV by offering
consumers cutting-edge technology, seamless convergence and unparalleled style
in a slim, compact form factor. The sophisticated, yet affordable Book 9 Lite
gives users everything they need to stay connected, productive and
entertained. It is now available for pre-sale in the U.S. and will be in
stores beginning on July 28.

“With the ATIV Book 9 Lite, we created a device that fits the needs of a
larger consumer base, while preserving the remarkable design and overall
experience delivered by the Book 9 lineage,” said Mike Abary, senior vice
president of consumer IT product marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “To
further streamline the computing experience and offer convenience to users, we
built an integrated solution, SideSync, to bring together the mobile and PC
ecosystems.”

The ATIV Book 9 Lite offers the same premium and striking design identity as
the ATIV Book 9 in a more widely accessible model. With a refined aerodynamic
architecture, accentuated by a sophisticated Ash Black or Marble White color,
users do not have to compromise style for performance.

Built with cutting-edge technology, including a ten-point touch-screen LCD
display, Quad Core Processor and a 128GB SSD, the Book 9 Lite balances
exceptional features with overall value. Weighing three and a half pounds and
measuring less than an inch thick, the Book 9 Lite is an ideal choice for
mobile consumers and business travelers alike.

Samsung customers can enjoy a completely integrated experience across their
smartphones, tablets and PCs, thanks to SideSync technology. The SideSync
solution creates a synergy between Samsung’s mobile and PC lines, enabling
users to seamlessly switch from working on their PC to their Galaxy smartphone
by simply connecting the two devices via a USB cable. When connected, users
can respond to a text on a mobile phone from their PC keyboard; view maps,
photos and multimedia from their phone on their PC screen; make edits to files
on their phone via their ATIV PC; and even drag and drop files from one unit
to another. The result is a more unified experience, fewer interruptions to
work and everyday life, and the ability to utilize the best features of both
devices.

The ATIV Book 9 Lite is now available for pre-sale for an MSRP of $799.99 and
will be available for in-store purchase beginning July 28.
