Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 brings QLED to the family for the first time
Samsung is no stranger to Chromebooks as the company was an early believer of Chrome OS. Now, however, Samsung is ready to bet bigger on Chromebooks with higher-end options instead of the usual budget models that have become the norm for the series.
The upcoming Galaxy Chromebook 2 will be the first Chromebook with a QLED FHD touchscreen when it launches before the end of April. When compared to IPS and OLED, QLED is able to offer deeper colors than IPS and at cheaper manufacturing costs than OLED. If you happen to need a Chromebook for video or photo editing, then the Galaxy Chromebook 2 will almost surely offer more accurate colors than any other Chromebook available at the moment.
Other than the special display and astonishingly large 5 W x2 speakers, everything else about Samsung's new laptop is pretty standard. Buyers will get a backlit keyboard, two USB-C ports, and active pen support. Its webcam, however, is still limited to 720p.
It's likely that the Galaxy Chromebook 2 will use the same QLED panel as found on the already available Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Alpha.
