Chromebooks, succinctly, are cheap and lightweight notebooks with the Google operating system, intended mainly for the student audience, but with little expression in UK. In any case, it is also an expanding market.
Proof of this are the images that illustrate this article, depicting the supposed Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2, revealed by Evan Blass and more leakers. Apparently, this will be the next cheap laptop computer from the South Korean manufacturer to be presented.
What to expect from the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2
The predecessor sinned for battery life, even though its design was attractive and the build quality was good. Still, it was far from cheap, presenting itself as a 2-in-1 priced at $ 999 in the North American market.
Thus, in the face of new slides presentations recently posted on the Internet thanks to the leaker WalkingCat, the usual source of material related to Windows, we have several improvements in the new generation. Among them, battery life.
The person responsible for the Twitter profile WalkingCat says that the Galaxy Chromebook 2 will have autonomy for 12 hours or more, while the current model has autonomy for about four and a half hours. The increase in battery life would be noticeable!
The next Samsung laptop with Google OS
Looking closely at the presentation slide, we see the reference to the QLED screen. To be sure, it would be the first Chromebook with this type of screen whose diagonal would be 13.3 inches, with no indication of its resolution.
It should also be noted that the current generation uses a Core i5 processor from Intel’s 10th generation, which is more than powerful to handle the tasks expected for a Chromebook. Thus, we can have a 10th generation Core i3 processor, which is more economical.
Note that Google’s Chrome OS operating system is very much based on the use of applications from the browser and activities from it. It is a simple platform, for those just looking for a simple laptop to work at school, for example.
So, with an autonomy for up to 12 hours, due to the less demanding processor and possibly lower resolution screen (the current one is 4K) and QLED technology, battery life will not be a problem, besides helping to lower the price.
Indeed, the leaker points a value of 699 dollars for the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2, while the current one costs about 999 dollars. The presentation of this product is not yet defined, but we believe that it can arrive until February 2021.
