Samsung ChromeBook to be the Future of Laptops at CES 2017
A lot of manufacturers came with interesting devices at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show and Samsung was no different. The South Korean tech giant presented two Chromebooks which were specifically designed to run Android applications. They also come equipped with an elegant stylus which is the first of its kind to support on-screen inking.
Partnering with Google to create the best laptop available, they’ve announced the Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro. They are all entirely metallic and are powered by Intel’s Core M3 chip. Samsung’s Chromebook Pro however comes equipped with a more powerful ARM processor.
Both Chromebooks come equipped with 360 hinges which allow them to switch between three modes such as tablet, tent and stand mode. Their screens measure 12.3 inches with LED display which has a resolution of 2400 x 1600 pixels.
Samsung’s new Chromebooks come packed with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space. Both devices have USB Type-C ports which support video outputs of 4K resolution. Samsung has announced an official release date for both devices. They are scheduled to hit the shelves in February while the Chromebook Pro will be issued a little bit later.
Similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Note lineup, the Chromebook have their styluses tucked at the edge of their screens. Both devices come with Android App support and they will mark a premiere in this respective industry as they will come pre-loaded with Google Play.
Pricing wise, the Samsung Chromebook Plus will come with a price tag of $449 while its better counterpart will be found at about $549. We were pleased to see that Samsung is joining this sector and cannot be more content that the competition is growing stronger as the years go by.
