New model will introduce touch screen and backlit keyboard.
During the Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung confirmed it's upgrading the firm's Series 5 ultrabook.
The upgraded Series 5 will incorporate a touch screen, which will be joined by a backlit keyboard. The overall design of the aluminum chassis is thinner; however, it remains thick enough to sport an optical drive.
The new Series 5 Ultra will be available sometime during February in black, red and pebble blue. A Core i3 version starts at $749, while a Core i5 version will retail for $899.
Samsung also announced the enhanced Series 7 Chronos and the Series 7 ultrabooks during CES.
