Samsung is gearing up to launch its own Chromebook – a laptop running Google's Chrome operating system (OS) – complete with a stylus as soon as next week, according to several media reports.
The Samsung Chromebook Pro – which was previously codenamed "Kevin" – was listed on electronics retailer B&H's website and on Adorama before being taken down, according to technology blog "Chrome Unboxed".
Key specs of the device include:
- 12.3-inch touchscreen display
- 360-degree hinge
- 32GB of storage
- Stylus that Samsung is calling "PEN"
The device will cost $499 with a release date of October 24, according to the listings on the e-commerce websites. This may change however. The pricing is higher than the majority of the Chromebook market with devices in this category selling from around $180 to $300. It appears Samsung is keen to position the Chromebook Pro as a premium device.
