Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Chromebook 2, the first QLED Chromebook. Its price starts at $ 550

Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Chromebook, powered by Chrome OS, surprised us with a gorgeous 4K UHD AMOLED display starting at $ 1,000. The new Galaxy Chromebook 2 is designed for a less affluent audience, and at the same time, the first in the Chromebooks segment received a touch QLED display.

Unfortunately, the resolution of the latter has dropped and is now 1920 × 1080 pixels. But the dimensions have not changed – its diagonal is still 13.3 inches. Like the previous version, it rotates 360 degrees, allowing you to use the system in tablet mode. Support for a special electronic pen S Pen is also in place, but you will have to buy it separately.

Compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is a bit fatter. Now it is 13.9 mm thick and weighs 1.23 kg. The novelty is assembled in an attractive aluminium body, available in two colours: Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray.

As the basis for the new Galaxy Chromebook 2, the manufacturer offers a choice of two processors: a dual-core and four-thread Intel Core i3-10110U with a frequency range of 2.1 to 4.1 GHz, as well as a dual-core Intel Celeron, 5205U without Hyper-Threading technology and with a frequency work 1.9 GHz. In the first case, the system is also equipped with 8 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 128 GB solid-state drive, in the second – 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of permanent memory. In both cases, Intel UHD Graphics is integrated for graphics capabilities.

Wireless communication is provided by the new product support Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +) 802.11ax. The system has lost Bluetooth support. The Galaxy Chromebook 2 is equipped with a 1 megapixel HD camera located in the familiar upper centre above the screen. The secondary camera in the upper left corner of the keyboard, like the original Galaxy Chromebook, no longer exists.

Galaxy Chromebook 2 received two  USB Type-C connectors, the ability to work with microSD memory cards, a combined audio output for headphones and a microphone, and two speakers with a total power of 5 watts. While offline, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is powered by a 45.5 Wh battery.

The South Korean manufacturer estimates the model based on Intel Celeron 5205U at $ 550. Samsung estimated the Galaxy Chromebook 2 based on the more advanced Intel Core i3-10110U at $ 700. Both will go on sale in the first quarter of 2021.
