Samsung Chromebook Plus (V2) 2-in-1 laptop announced

Samsung is also including dual cameras on the Chromebook Plus (V2).

On the hardware front, the ARM-based OP1 processor has been replaced by a beefier x86-64 processor. Samsung favored a graphics resolution of 1920×1080 for the latest Chromebook, whereas Chromebook Plus featured 2400 × 1600 resolution. Designwise the new Samsung Chromebook Plus resembles its predecessor. It's a little heavier than its predecessor at 2.93 pounds, but it comes with the same slim design.

First off, the Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 is using an Intel Celeron 3965Y processor instead of the ARM SoC of the earlier model. It has a 16:10 aspect ratio. The keyboard now comes with curved key caps and is created to be spill-resistant. Under the hood, the laptop is powered by an Intel Celeron 3865Y processor, paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which is expandable up to 400GB via a microSD card. Samsung didn't provide any battery capacity information, but the internal pack is replenished through the USB-C connectors and has "all-day" life.

The in-built stylus is redesigned for a firm grip and compliment the curved design of the Chromebook Plus V2.

Samsung is also promoting some of the software features that make its Chromebooks stand out against the competition. Write a note, sketch out an idea, edit a document, sign a document, or even use the pen to magnify small text and capture carefully cropped screenshots. There's also a 13-megapixel, f/1.9 aperture camera on the keyboard dock (the rear-facing camera) that complements the 1-megapixel shooter centered above the display (deemed the front-facing lens). While some may only think of low-priced entries when they hear the word Chromebook, devices like Google's own Pixelbook show that there is a market for premium devices running Chrome OS. The new device will be made available in the U.S. starting June 24 across Best Buy stores and Bestbuy.com at a starting price of $499.99.
