Netbooks sporting Chrome OS are slowly leaking through the web, the latest being Samsung’s dual-core Atom netbook.

Codenamed “Alex,” ChromeNieuws.nl is reporting that the 12.1-inch Samsung netbook will sport a 1280x800 resolution screen, run on a 1.5GHz Intel Atom N550 processor with 2GB RAM, and  carry a SSD of unknown capacity for storage. Connectivity options such as Bluetooth, 3G, and Wi-Fi should all be coming standard, as well as USB ports, card reader, and VGA-out. The source describes the system as being similar in specifications to the CR-48 Google netbook.

A Sony notebook sporting Chrome OS was also leaked earlier last month.

The Samsung netbook could be just one of many Chrome OS-equipped devices expected to be announced during the Google I/O conference this May 10th. We previously reported that Chrome-based netbooks would begin shipping Q2 2011, so this would be the perfect time for manufacturers to show off their Google-centric offerings.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
