Samsung has announced the launch of a new variant of Chromebook 2. Powered by Intel Celeron N2840 processor, the new Chromebook 2 variant will join the earlier launched Exynos 5 Octa-powered versions of the device.
According to Samsung, the new Chromebook 2 goes on pre-order today in US, followed by availability next week. It will retail for $249.99.
In terms of the specifications, this Chrome OS laptop packs 2GB of RAM, 11.6-inch 1366x768p display, 16GB SSD, and Wi-Fi support. More specifications later in the report.
The company notes that it has made the Chromebook 2 sturdier with internal metal reinforcements and has included a new Google Help app, which offers support for Chromebook 2 troubles over video chat. Like Amazon’s MayDay service, the support executives help you by taking control of your screen to show you how to do stuff, change settings, or fix any issues that you might be experiencing. Google Help is available Monday through Friday from 10AM to 7PM ET.
