When we talk about Chromebooks customers usually think of them as notebooks costing a couple of hundred dollars. However, there is a special treat for Chrome OS fans at the CES 2020. Samsung has unveiled its Samsung Galaxy Chromebook which can be yours for $999.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is a visual treat to look at. The display is the highlight of this machine which is a 13.3-inch 4k (3840 x 2160) AMOLED display with a touch screen feature. This makes it the first Chromebook to have an AMOLED display. Samsung claims the screen can change its color temperature based on the lightning in the room with the same “Ambient EQ” technology Google used on its Nest Hub smart displays hinting a collaborative work.

It sits on a 2-in-1 hinge allowing 360-degree rotation that makes it possible to use as a tablet. The ultra-thin (0.55 inch) design should work out better than other 2-in-1 Chromebooks on the market. However, Samsung’s Galaxy Chromebook is not only about looks and packs great specs inside. It is powered by an Intel 10th Gen i5 (10210U) processor. Intel chipsets are not common on Chrome OS laptops with Lenovo’s C630 workhorse being one of the options that come to mind. There is 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD to ensure a fast experience.

The notebook has a 50Wh battery, two USB-C port, a microSD slot and dual speakers on the sides of the machine. Other features include a fingerprint sensor, 1MP webcam, and a “world-facing” 8MP camera. The additional treat comes with the S-Pen which docks directly into the Chromebook and supports quick note-taking functions. It is stored in a silo on the device.

Samsung’s Galaxy Chromebook is available in an incredibly bold red color that looks electric orange in certain lighting conditions. Samsung has named it “Fiesta Red” and introduced plain old gray color if you like plain old things. The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook launches in Q1 2020.
