New Chromebook models are just around the corner. Samsung has listed the latest model, Chromebook Pro, on its South Korean website. The latest Chromebook sports a 2K, 12.3-inch display with 3:2 aspect ratio along with effective resolution of 2400 x 1600.
Samsung Chromebook comes with an all-aluminium design and a 360-degree hinge which effectively turns the device into a 2-in-1, allowing it to be used as an ultrabook as well as a large tablet. On the specs front, the Chromebook comes with a hexa-core processor with two Cortex-A72 and four Cortex-A53 cores, clocked at 2GHz for efficient energy conservative operation.
Also, it comes along with two USB Type-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack and an SD card slot. The device runs on 4GB RAM and packs 32GB internal storage with claimed battery life of 10 hours on the listing page. The laptop comes along with one-year free subscription of AirDroid app which makes it easier to access and control your Android smartphone using Chromebook Pro as reported by SamMobile.
One interesting thing to notice is that the latest Chromebook Pro will come with Google Play Store access, which will allow users to run Android apps on the device. However, 32GB internal storage may seem too less. Chromebook Pro comes with a 'Pen' stylus (salvaged from all the disposed Galaxy Note 7 devices) which will make it more likely to be used during the tablet orientation mode.
There are no additional details regarding pricing, but Adorama pre-order page hinted that the pricing could be $499, which roughly translates to Rs 33,400. Both Adorama and listing pages have been taken down. However, you can still access the cached copy of the listing page.
