Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 specifications

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 features a 13.3-inch full-HD (1,920x1,080 pixels) QLED display with touch support. It is powered by either Intel Celeron 5205U or 10th-generation Intel Core i3-10110U processor, paired with Intel UHD Graphics and up to 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The Chromebook comes in 64GB and 128GB storage options — along with expansion support via microSD card.

Samsung has provided 5W stereo speakers along with Smart AMP sound that is touted to produce audio output up to 178 percent louder than an average amplifier. There is also support for a stylus that can have up to 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

The Galaxy Chromebook 2 features an HD (720p) webcam. There is also a backlit, lattice keyboard. Further, the Chromebook includes a 45.5WHr battery.

Connectivity options on the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 include two USB Type-C ports, a headphone/ microphone combo jack, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth v5.0. It runs on Google's Chrome OS with Google Play store access.

The Chromebook measures 304.9x203.2x13.9mm and weighs 1.23 kilograms. This isn't that sleek or lightweight when comparing with the first-generation Galaxy Chromebook that had 9.9mm of thickness and 1.04 kilograms of weight. But nonetheless, the cheaper price and the presence of QLED display makes the new model equally compelling.
