The Galaxy Chromebook was 2020’s most premium Chrome OS-based laptop, and Samsung is following it up with a successor in 2021. Three weeks ago, we had reported that the South Korean tech giant would soon launch the Galaxy Chromebook 2. Now, the design of the upcoming Chromebook has been revealed, thanks to a leaked image.
Trusted leakster Evan Blass has published the first press render of the Galaxy Chromebook 2. The image shows Samsung’s upcoming Chrome OS-powered laptop in two colors: Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray. Unlike last year’s model, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 appears to extend the Fiesta Red color all the way to its sides, making it look extremely attractive. It is a 2-in-1 convertible laptop with a metal build. It appears to feature a webcam, a full-sized keyboard, an S Pen, two USB Type-C ports, a headphone jack, a microSD card slot, and a volume rocker.
There’s no information on the Galaxy Chromebook 2’s specifications yet, but using a faster processor and a better thermal design would be a good place to start. Samsung also needs to work on its upcoming Chromebook’s battery life since that’s where the first-gen model missed its mark. The company recently unveiled its new Windows 10-powered laptops—Galaxy Book Flex 2, Galaxy Book Flex 2 5G, Galaxy Book Ion 2, and Notebook Plus 2—that offer 11th Gen. Intel CPUs for better performance and longer battery life.
