Samsung Galaxy Chromebook hands-on: 4K never looked so good

by birtanpublished on August 28, 2020

It looks like 20/20 may finally be the year of the high-end Chromebook after google playing in space alone for several years samsung is finally jumping in as well with the new galaxy Chromebook delivering spectacular built hardware with some impressive specs now

To be clear Samsung has been building Chromebooks for years now but this is the first time that they've built one that cost a thousand dollars and for that price you get one of the best displays that we've ever seen on a

Laptop period a 13.3 inch 16 by 9 4k AMOLED display with HDR support honestly it's really hard to describe just how great this panel looks while Chromebooks are typically built for web browsing this panel here honestly encourages high

Quality media consumption so be ready to binge watch all your favorite shows as we've seen on a handful of other Chromebooks these days you also get Penn support here which Samsung of course is using its tried-and-true s-pen for that

Pen functionality isn't quite as full features as what you would get on a Galaxy Note but it's quite responsive and allows you to draw on the screen or use it for handwritten notes when you flip the display over and use the Galaxy

Chromebook in tablet mode and that's one of the best features here a laptop with a versatility of a large tablet the overall weight of the laptop is 2.2 7 pounds making it one of the lightest 13-inch laptops around and not too heavy

To be used in tablet mode Samsung was able to achieve this thanks to the lightweight aluminum construction and Intel's new 10th Gen Core i5 processor which allowed them to forego the use of a cooling fan this means that the laptop

Runs perfectly silent even under heavy use but it also means you'll be able to squeeze out roughly nine hours of battery life from its forty nine point two watt hour battery the trackpad and the keyboard offer a lot of room but

Since the laptop is impossibly thin the scissor switches for the keyboard only offer roughly a millimeter of travel now that's definitely not a lot but in using it for 30 minutes we actually felt pretty good about it but we'll reserve

Our final judgement for the full review the only real downside to the build of this laptop is with the hinge resulting in a noticeable wobble while typing on a solid surface something that would likely get even worse while using it on

Your lap for wireless connectivity you get Wi-Fi six and to support and you also have two USB ports which can both be used for charging and microSD card slot and a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack storage

Options here it's range between 128 gigabytes and 1 terabyte and you also have the options to choose between 8 gigabytes and 16 gigabytes of RAM up front you get a 1 megapixel camera mainly used for video calling and then

An oddly placed 8 megapixel camera that's right above the keyboard which Samsung says can be used for taking pictures of documents or of a whiteboard in a class when you flip the laptop over into tablet mode we're still waiting on

The exact launch date but Samsung says we should expect the Galaxy Chromebook to hit store shelves sometime in q1 a thousand-dollar Chromebook definitely isn't for everybody but with hardware like this we suspect high-end

Chromebooks will be a lot more popular in 2020
