Samsung Galaxy Chromebook coming to the US
This Intel Core i5-10210U-driven high-end Chromebook that was unveiled three months ago is finally coming to the US via Best Buy and Samsung's online store. Priced at US$999, the Galaxy Chromebook has a flip-and-fold design and its most attractive feature is the 4K Super AMOLED touchscreen with S Pen support.

Chromebooks used to be cheap portable devices with Chrome OS for basic office tasks, but it looks like things have been changing for a while now. After all, why not perform some office work on a 4K Super AMOLED touchscreen when this can be achieved on a machine priced below the one thousand bucks threshold?

Expected to hit the US next week via Best Buy and Samsung's online store, the Galaxy Chromebook is powered by the Intel Core i5-10210U processor and will only be available in a single hardware configuration for a while. Additional storage variants and an LTE-capable model are also expected to hit the market later this year, but until they come out, those interested can only get this flip-and-fold machine in Fiesta Red or Mercury Gray with 8 GB of memory, a 256 GB NVMe SSD, 1 MP/8 MP front/back cameras, fingerprint reader, backlit keyboard, and 2 W stereo speakers.

In addition to the above, we should also mention the two USB Type-C ports, combo card slot, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5, and the fact that Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook is the first Chrome OS-driven laptop to feature Ambient EQ — nothing else but the ability to automatically adjust white balance and color temperature based on the ambient lighting conditions. The average battery life on a single charge should exceed 9 hours, which is not bad at all considering the aforementioned 13.3-inch 4K Super AMOLED touchscreen display with S Pen support.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
