Samsung appears to have quietly launched its first Chromebook with a 15.6 inch display.
Update: And now its official. Samsung says the Chromebook 4+ with a 15.6 inch, full HD display is priced at $300 and up, while a new 11.6 inch Samsung Chromebook 4 with an HD screen sells for $230 and up.
The laptop isn’t exactly a high-performance machine — it has an Intel Celeron N4000 Gemini Lake dual-core processor, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and 32GB of eMMC storage.
But it does have a few features that are nice to find in a budget laptop including a 1920 x 1080 pixel display and 802.11ac WiFi.
Other features include a 720p webcam, a microSD card reader, two USB 3.0 Type-C ports, and a 39 Wh battery.
The Samsung Chromebook 4+ measures about 14.2″ x 9.6″ x 0.6″ and weighs 3.75 pounds.
While it lacks some features found on higher-priced Chromebooks such as a touchscreen display and/or convertible tablet-style design, the notebook should at least be sturdy — it’s said to be MIL-STD-810G tested.
