This is the third post in a row about the upcoming Samsung Chromebook 2, a refresh to one of the most popular Chromebooks ever. We saw pictures of the new Chromebook so far, but now we have (almost) complete specs, price and approximate release date.
My source is an article on Uber Gizmo, which was probably accidentally published before the planned date. But I do not see them quoting any source, and there is no mention of RAM of the device. There is a picture of the Chromebook, which looks similar to what we saw in earlier leaks.
Update: The Uber Gizmo article now gives 404 error. I will take that as a confirmation for details leaked!
Earlier rumors suggested that the updated Samsung Chromebooks will have 4GB RAM. Since that leak got rest of the specs correct, it is safe to say that these new Chromebooks will come with 4GB RAM.
Specs – Samsung Chromebook 2
- 11.6 and 13.3 screen variants
- 13.3 model has 1920×1080 Full HD display
- 11.6 model has 1366×768 display.
- Exynos 5 Octa processors from Samsung
- 8.5 hours of battery
- Free software worth more than $100 free
- Available in April
- $319.99 for 11.6 model
- $399.99 for the 13.3 model
Sounds good, except for the fact that these are ARM processors that we are talking about. How much difference can this new processor and extra RAM can make? We will have to wait and watch.
let me add one more thing. I am still a big fan of HP Chromebook 11’s design. I will hold on for a while to see if they will release an updated version of their Chromebook with a better processor and some additional RAM.
