The Chromebook 511 is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor. It integrates eight Kryo 468 cores at up to 2.4 GHz, an Adreno 618 GPU, and a Snapdragon X15 LTE modem.

The Chromebook version 311, in turn, received the MediaTek MT8183 chip. This product contains eight processing cores and the Mali G72 graphics accelerator.

Laptop computers are ruggedized (MIL-STD 810H standard). The keyboard is not afraid of accidentally spilled liquid; in addition, the devices are not afraid of falls from a height of 1.2 meters.

New items can boast of long battery life – up to 20 hours on a single battery charge. The Chromebook 511 is capable of operating on fourth-generation cellular networks.

More details on the technical specifications of Chromebooks will be revealed at a later date. But their cost is already being announced: a Chromebook 511 will cost 399 euros, and a laptop Chromebook 311 – 269 euros. The novelties are designed for use primarily in the educational field.
