Samsung Unveil Premium Refresh of Chromebook Lineup
Samsung has announced two new additions to its Chromebook lineup offering both hardware and software upgrades to push ‘the boundaries of convenience and value for computers’ in the 4 and 4+.
Available in the US from $230 and $300 respectively, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Samsung Electronics America called the Samsung Chromebook 4 lineup ‘a testament to what can be achieved when you’re focused’.
No word yet from Samsung on availability in Australia.
The Chromebook 4 weighs in at 1.17 kg with an 11.6-inch screen, while the 4+ with a 15.6-inch screen weighs only 1.7 kg.
Sporting a ‘simple but sophisticated look of a premium device’, the Chromebook 4 and 4+ both have no visible screws.
Both devices meet ‘ eight military-grade standards, measuring resistance to extreme temperature, dust, and other shocks,’ with an all-day battery life of 12.5 hours for the 4 and 10.5 hours in the 4+.
With up to 64 GB of storage, 5 GB of memory and an Intel Celeron Processor N4000, the Chromebook 4 and 4+ are more than capable of handling HD streaming and word processing.
USB-C functionality provides high-speed data transfers and 4K monitor support.
The included Google ecosystem brings the support of the Virtual Assistant and Play Store for greater functionality.
