Samsung announces the 2-in-1 Chromebook Plus V2

Samsung's Chromebook Plus (V2) gets turbocharged with an Intel processor

The "rear" camera, above the keyboard, for use in tablet mode, is a new addition. Specifically, a 1.5GHz dual-core Celeron 3965Y Kaby Lake CPU that Intel released in 2017.

Unleashing Creativity - The Samsung Chromebook Plus (V2) stands out by coming with a built-in pen.

The popular laptop-tablet hybrid will be faster and long-lasting with a new Intel CPU and extended battery life.

There's no word on whether Samsung is planning to bring the Chromebook Plus V2 to other markets, like the United Kingdom.

Samsung's Chromebook Plus (V2) makes another useful change by doubling up on the cameras, offering both front and rear-facing models.

The design is sleek and comfortable to handle with rounded edges and a curved-cap keyboard built to withstand spills up to 60cc. That content-consumption-biased panel still has a fairly high pixel density at 181 PPI, but it nevertheless represents a downgrade from the old model's 2400x1600 screen with a more productivity-friendly, Surface-style 3:2 aspect ratio.

Beyond specs, the hardware is capable of the same transformation from laptop into tablet, but maybe more importantly, you'll still get the S Pen experience you had past year.

Samsung has announced the second generation Chromebook Plus. While some may only think of low-priced entries when they hear the word Chromebook, devices like Google's own Pixelbook show that there is a market for premium devices running Chrome OS.

You're also getting a 12.2-inch Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Intel HD Graphics 615, and a 39Wh battery all crammed into a body that's 2.91 pounds. The sides of the machine sport a USB 3.0 Type-A connector, an audio combo jack, a microSD card reader, and two USB-C ports that can also serve as 4K display outputs. The Samsung Chromebook Plus (V2) offers even more functionality to users with multiple connected devices, including easy file sharing between Chromebook and mobile devices.
