Samsung took time today to announced the new Chromebook 4 and Chromebook 4+ laptops in the market. It’s been four long years since the launch of Chromebook 3, which was an advanced and affordable Laptop based on the ChromeOS. Samsung announced the Chromebook 4 with an 11.5-inch display for $229.99/- and the 15.6-inch Chromebook 4+ for $299.99/-. All of the devices are affordable and are in-line with the predecessor, which had a similar price tag. With this pricing, the devices become much more accessible to the userbase.
It’s been a long time since the launch of Chromebook 3 from Samsung. The ChromeOS has seen a lot of new devices launched from other companies like Acer. If the Samsung logo was not on the Display, then it resembled much like the Asus Chromebook Flip C302 device. On the hardware side, it comes with the Intel Celeron N4000 processor and USB Type-C support. The Chromebook 4 from Samsung comes with a single USB-C port, but the Chromebook 4+ comes with two USB-C ports for charging and connectivity. Both of the devices come with the 30W Power adapter and single USB-A port as connectivity options.
Both of the devices have two variants with different configuration options. The devices will have the 4GB or 6GB RAM variant, 32GB or 64GB inbuilt eMMC storage, and a MicroSD card slot to expand the storage capacity. Samsung has used the same battery on both of the devices. The included battery has a capacity of 39Wh. The 11.6-inch model provides 12.5 hours of screen on time, and the 15.6-inch model offers the 10.5 hours of battery backup. Everything on the hardware side is perfect, except for the lack of the touchscreen display. Unfortunately, it is not made as to the 2-in-1 Chromebook for better productivity.
