The South Korean firm, Samsung which unveiled Galaxy Chromebooks in January 2020, has announced to launch it on April 6th this year officially.
At the price of $999, the laptop is equipped with a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 10210U processor, 1.6GHz base, and 4.2GHz turbo (more powerful processor than most Chromebooks), with a quad-core CPU, multi-threading and 1.6GHz base clock speed. It is the first to sport a 13.3 inch 4K OLED display with a 9.9mm thick body. It comes with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD.
It is the first laptop from the company to support Ambient EQ for white balance and color temperature tuning. There’s an automatic adjustment to bright outdoor sunlight or watching videos and gaming in the dark. The touchscreen comes paired with an S pen, for note-taking and browsing, that slots into chassis. There’s a fingerprint sensor in a package weighing 2.29 pounds.
Additionally, there are two USB-c ports, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack with a 47.9Wh battery that runs for 8.4 hours. There’s 1MP webcam, 8MP world facing lens, dual speakers, and Wi-Fi 6.
Samsung, in January, had indicated that it would have an additional configuration, such as a 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD. However, only the base model has been given approval for the launch.
The device is a bit more expensive than its competitors like ASUS’ Chromebook Flip C43 for $549, along with some fantastic Windows ultrabooks. We hope that it proves to be worth the price.
The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook will be available at your nearest Samsung and Best Buy stores. It comes in two variants “Fiesta Red” and “Mercury Gray.”
