The Galaxy Chromebook will be available in Q1 2020, revealed Monday at CES in Las Vegas, with a starting price of $1,000. That makes it one of the Chromebooks you could buy the most expensive. Other vendors have tried to play in this room, and traction has rarely occurred.
Yet executives from Samsung and Google who briefed journalists before CES said the world was ready. Users of Chromebook called for better machines— larger screens, faster hardware, more fashionable architecture.
The Galaxy Chromebook also packs 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD to ensure a smooth experience. Also on the sides of the unit, there is a 50Wh battery, two USB-C ports, a microSD card slot, and dual speakers. Samsung also included a fingerprint sensor, 1MP webcam, and an 8MP camera “world-facing.”
Nonetheless, this machine’s real highlight is its show. There’s a 13.3-inch AMOLED display on the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook that is, of course, a touch screen. It also sits on a 2-in-1 character so that the computer can be used as a laptop. It should work better than other2-in-1 Chromebooks, due to its ultra-thin nature.
