Samsung has launched the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360, a 12.4-inch device that the company aims at students. Revealed in the UK, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 comes in two configurations, both with an Intel Celeron N4500 processor, eMMC flash storage and 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM.

Samsung has equipped the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 with the following ports too:
- 2x USB Type-C
