Samsung has just unveiled two new Chrome OS-driven portables, namely Samsung Chromebook Plus and Samsung Chromebook Pro. Both have the same design, weight, and dimensions, but use different processors. While the Plus has an ARM-based SoC inside, its sibling is powered by an Intel Core m3 processor.

These are the highlights of the two Chromebooks mentioned above:

  • Processor: OP1 hexa-core (two Cortex-A72 and four Cortex-A53 cores) and Intel Core m3 6Y30

  • Connectivity: WiFi 80211 ac (2X2), Bluetooth 4.0, 2XUSB Type-C
  • Operating system: Chrome OS
  • Weight/Dimensions: 2.38 pounds; 11.06X8.72X0.51 ~ 0.55 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: 39 Wh; up to 8 hours

In addition to the above, both these two new Chromebooks come with a one-year subscription for the full version of AirDroid Premium. There are also two stereo speakers and a 3.5 mm audio jack, while the S-Pen stylus has a special slot for storage.

The Chromebook Plus XE513C24-K01US will hit the market next month via various major retailers, starting at $449 USD. The Intel-driven Chromebook Pro XE510C24-K01US is expected to become available this spring, but its price has not been unveiled yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
