Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 Launched
Samsung is throwing announcements one after another like throwing arrows in a dart game. Consumers can’t be happier with the launches and announcements which are coming now and then. Today Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy Chromebook 2. This is the first Chromebook in the world to include a QLED display. Its predecessor, the first-gen Chromebook had an AMOLED screen onboard.
Galaxy Chromebook 2 Specifications
|Display||13.3-inch QLED touch screen with a 1920×1080 pixel|
|Processor||Intel Celeron 5205U processor|
The Galaxy Chromebook 2 is about 13.9 mm thick and weighs about 1.23 kgs, meaning it’s super portable and slightly heavier compared to its predecessor.
It boasts a 13.3-inch QLED touch screen with a 1920×1080 pixel resolution and the bezels are quite minimal. There is a 720p webcam at the top bezel for supporting video in Zoom call or any other online conferences.
The QLED screen can recognize 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and has stylus support. One can easily use it to draw, take notes, edit photos by adding any Universal Stylus Initiative pen to it.
The Galaxy Chromebook 2 is a super impressive 2-in-1 laptop with a 360-degree hinge that enables it to use in different modes.
The base variant of the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is powered by the Intel Celeron 5205U processor. You can get the 10th-Gen Intel Core i3-10110U processor, fishing out some more money.
It is a dual-core CPU with 4 threads and Intel UHD graphics, coupled with up to 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM and up to 128GB of storage. Samsung also offers a microSD card slot for easy file transfer or storage expansion.
Galaxy Chromebook 2 features two 5W speakers, backed by the company’s Smart AMP feature which makes them 178% louder than any average amplifier.
The battery back up is said to be about 14 hours offered by the 45.5W battery. The laptop also supports a backlit keyboard, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6, 2x USB Type-C ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Price and Availability
Galaxy Chromebook 2 has been priced starting at $550( close to Rs,40,330) but the date isn’t confirmed. It is expected to be available any time in 2021. It will have two colorways – Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray.
The Galaxy Chromebook 2 is a great deal for the price it is offered at. The first-gen Galaxy Chromebook was priced at $999 for the 4K OLED panel onboard. The Galaxy Chromebook 2 has equally good features at almost half of its price.
