Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation ( SEPCO), a leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced the launch of its premium Series 7 CHRONOS notebook PC during its press conference at Time Bar in Makati City.
Encased in a stunningly thin and compact aluminum chassis, the high-spec Series 7 CHRONOS with Intel’s Core i5 processor embraces the ExpressCache™* technology, providing an extra 8GB of flash memory on the motherboard. This enables a faster start-up as well as increased overall performance with up to two times faster web browsing (based on Microsoft Internet Explorer) and two seconds wake-up.
In addition to exceptional speed, the Series 7 CHRONOS also delivers maximum performance in its high quality display. Incorporating Samsung’s latest ‘MAX screen’ technology, the Series 7 CHRONOS enables users to experience an extra inch of immersive viewing without sacrificing mobility or portability with the 15” display contained within the form factor traditionally associated with a 14” model.
“Following the success of our stunning Series 9 Notebook, we are expanding our premium notebook range. With the Series 7, we have matched powerful new features with Samsung’s design and engineering excellence to produce a truly special product,” said Eric Sulit, Business Unit Head SEPCO IT. “Our goal is to create notebooks that constantly inspire and enrich customers’ lives. The Series 7 CHRONOS represents the peak of personal computing, letting you do more faster.”
Powered by Intel’s i5 processor, the Series 7 CHRONOS delivers unrivalled pace right from the start with ExpressCache™, a technology that accelerates boot-up and start times. Samsung’s FastStart sees the PC ready to use in just two seconds, a 33% time-improvement on previous models, while Quick Boot has the notebook ready to go – from cold – in just 24 seconds.
The performance of the Series 7 CHRONOS is further enhanced by the notebook’s extended battery life. In addition to the battery life of up to 8 hours on a single charge (based on MobileMark test scores), Samsung’s Battery Life Plus technology keeps 80% of the cell’s original capacity in a life cycle lasting up to 1,500 charging cycles. This ensures that the battery can last up to five times longer than other notebooks.
See More, Experience More
Samsung’s elite engineers have succeeded in greatly reducing the bezel size of the Series 7 CHRONOS, allowing a 15” display to fit into a profile usually used for 14” models. The result is a stunning viewing experience, with a larger screen in the form factor of a smaller model.
The Series 7 CHRONOS also benefits from Samsung’s Superior LCD technology, a display that delivers a next-generation HD+ (1600x900) high-resolution viewing experience. The Series 7 CHRONOS boasts of SuperBright 300nit brightness, 16 million colors and an anti-reflective screen, films and pictures look rich, vivid and crisp, with noticeable improvements in color depth.
Graphics performance is guaranteed with the inclusion of an AMD Radeon HD6750M graphics card where films, games and multimedia can be enjoyed with faultless playback. Samsung’s SoundAlive™ technology then ensures that audio playback matches the visual quality to provide a mesmerizing audiovisual experience. Finally, users can also use built-in 1.3mp HD webcam to keep in touch with friends and family, all in crystal clear clarity.
Stunning Design meets Smart Usability
The Series 7 CHRONOS has been designed with an eye-catching style to complement its stunning performance. Crafted using modern brushed-aluminum, the durable casing gives the Series 7 an exclusive, sophisticated look. Thin and compact, the 14” Series 7 weighs just 2.17kg (4.78lbs) and is just 23.9mm thick.
The Series 7 CHRONOS design is not only good-looking, it is also highly intelligent. An automatic sensor ensures the backlit keyboard and LCD are either dimmed or brightened as according to lighting levels.

Samsung’s Control Center also allows full control over the features on your PC, ensuring the user can manage their device and the way they use it.
