Samsung has been expanding its range of Galaxy branded products to include the excellent Galaxy Book S Windows laptop and more recently, the Galaxy Chromebook. Although the ‘Galaxy’ name is well-known by consumers, the line is also meant to represent Samsung’s mobile devices family. The Galaxy Chromebook launched earlier this year priced at US$999, putting it squarely in the premium category when it comes to the Chromebook segment (although at the time of writing, this model is now down to US$549 (save $450) on the Samsung USA website). 

Respected leaker Evan Blass has leaked the first images of the sequel, expected to be called the Galaxy Chromebook2. The fundamental design is very similar, except the silver banding that went around the sides of the device has now been changed to include either the Fiesta Red all around, or similarly, the Mercury Gray. Samsung has also tweaked the port locations as well.  The biggest criticism of the original was levelled at its poor battery life, which was only good for between 4 to 5 hours on a charge. 

Although we don’t yet know anything about the specs for the upcoming Galaxy Chromebook2, we would be shocked if Samsung didn’t target battery life as a priority. While we hope the stunning 4K display will carry over to the new model, it was unquestionably the primary culprit when it comes to the battery life challenges of the first gen model. Where the OG was fitted with an Intel Core i5-10210U chip, the new model could pick up an Intel Evo 11th gen Tiger Lake processor. This should also help with battery life.

Expect to learn more details about the Galaxy Chromebook2 in January, when it is likely to get an official unveiling.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
