Samsung is fast establishing a pattern of making revolutionary releases during CES events in the last couple of years. Last year, the first Chromebook with an AMOLED screen was unveiled, and CES 2021 has seen the tech giant launching the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2, having a QLED display. It is the first laptop to have embraced QLED technology.
The Chromebook 2 has a 13.3″ touchscreen with 1,920×1,080 pixels HDR display. The device supports both finger and pen capability (USI pen). It weighs 1.23kg, marginally heavier than the Chromebook from last year but is still quite portable and is priced from $550, which is about half the cost of its premium predecessor from last year. The base model has an Intel Celeron 5205U, while a 10th gen Intel Core i3 10110U (dual-core CPU with 4 threads and higher clocks) provides a greater speed of operations.
The laptop comes with either 4 or 8 GB of RAM (LPDDR3) and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, with a microSD slot also available. The 45.5 Wh battery can last about 14 hours of continuous use without charging.
The two 5W speakers in the laptop have the Smart AMP feature, which Samsung claims is 178% louder than an average amplifier. The Chromebook 2 has a 720p webcam suitable for video conferencing on all platforms.
The laptop has Wi-Fi 6 (ax 2×2) and Bluetooth v5.0, while two USB-C ports and a headphone/ microphone jack are also available on the sides of the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 will come in two color variants: Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray. The first units will be on sale in the US market before the end of the first quarter of this year.
