A new Samsung Chromebook has made its way to the FCC, and it shares many similarities with the recent Galaxy Chromebook Go. While the unreleased model also has an Intel Jasper Lake processor, it has a smaller 11.6-inch display, along with no touchscreen element.

It has not been long since Samsung released a new Chromebook, albeit without telling anyone. The launch of the Galaxy Chromebook Go followed four Galaxy Book laptops, all Windows machines. Nonetheless, a recent FCC filing suggests that Samsung has a second Galaxy Chromebook planned.

While the FCC has not revealed the machine's name, multiple documentation refers to it by its model name, XE315XDA. Incidentally, the Galaxy Chromebook Go is the XE310XDA. Unsurprisingly, the XE310XDA and XE315XDA share many components, including an Intel Celeron N4500 processor.

Samsung has also paired the Jasper Lake chip with up to 8 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and an LTE modem. Moreover, the XE315XDA has a 40.2 Wh battery, 2.1 Wh smaller than the Galaxy Chromebook Go's capacity. However, the XE315XDA has an 11.6-inch and display, making it a considerably smaller alternative to the 14-inch Galaxy Chromebook Go.

It is unclear when Samsung will reveal the XE315XDA. The FCC has also confirmed that the device will ship without a touchscreen, so it should be considerably cheaper than the Galaxy Chromebook Go, too.
