Samsung was involved in the building of one of the first Chromebook to hit the market and since then, it has just been an irresistible piece of hardware for them to keep their hands off of. At CES 2017, Samsung has unveiled two new Chromebooks – the Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro – and they have both been given the option of working with Google Play apps out of the box.
Likewise, Samsung has introduced a Note build element into the new designs, equipping them with their very own Stylus pens. To make the Google Play application experience worth it, the Chromebook Pro and Chromebook Plus have been built with their ow n accelero-meters and gyroscope sensors.
Looking further down the hood, both units come with a lot of interesting features. As the units are more similar than they are different, Samsung has decided to pack both units with nearly the same kind of features. The Chromebooks would have 12.3 inches of screen which is to be protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology.
Likewise, the Chromebook Plus variant is expected to run on a hexa core OP1 ARM processor. For the Chromebook Pro model, an Intel Core M3 6Y30 dual core chipset is on board. For the rest of the specifications that makes up both units, we have 4GB of RAM paired to an internal storage space of 32GB.
The front camera is on HD resolution and there is availability of the USB Type C ports. With expandable memory storage option on board, the battery is definitely no slouch, given that it has been primed to last up to 8 hours on a single charge.
Priced at $449, the Plus model of the Chromebook is supposed to go on sale as from next month and on the other hand, the Pro would be selling sometimes later in the year, with pricing information unavailable.
