Samsung Announces New Chromebook Plus V2

  • MORE

Samsung today (June 14) announced a new version of its Samsung Chromebook Plus, entitled the Chromebook Plus (V2) with an Intel Celeron processor and front and rear facing cameras. It will be available at Best Buy on June 24 starting at $499.99.

The laptop will use an Intel Celeron 3965Y processor (a change from the old Plus' ARM processor, though the Chromebook Pro used an Intel Core M3). The "rear" camera, above the keyboard, for use in tablet mode, is a new addition. The laptop will have 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

One big change, though, is that the Chromebook Plus (V2) has a 1920 x 1080 display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. The previous model had a 3:2 aspect ratio with a 2400 x 1600 resolution, and was one of our favorite parts of the old version.

Otherwise, though, it looks pretty similar, including a stylus and the same two USB Type-C and a microSD card reader. We'll give it a thorough hands-on when it shows up in our labs.

    Nope! No thanks. Downgraded resolution? Still a paltry 4GB/32GB? $500 bucks? Nope. If that's the case, for those specs, I will wait for ASUS upcoming Chromebook tablet, Tab 10?

    With ChromeOS increasingly supporting Android apps, Linux, and now Windows 10 support rumored to be forthcoming, those specs are paltry. For those sorts of specs, ASUS' Tablet, or some HP X2 I read is coming are better alternatives. Samsung, bad move for a v.2!

    Lower resolution, ditched 3:2 aspect ratio, pitiful 32gb storage, same crappy (non-backlit) keyboard all for $500? Yup...I think I will buy two!
