The Chromebook 2 has much more to offer than the original Galaxy Chromebook. Not only does this new model perform a lot better, but it also looks great in either Mineral Gray or Fiesta Red. It’s easy to use and can be turned and bent depending on whether you want to use it as a regular laptop with a keyboard or a tablet. In addition, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 updates automatically in the background and prevents unwanted lags.
Since it’s made of aluminum, this 2-in-1 is both sleek and durable. The body is around 0.55-in thick. There is hardly any flex on the keyboard or the display. Speaking of the keyboard, it is easy to use and features a “lattice” design. The keycaps are large enough to provide a pleasant typing experience. Keyholes and gaps between the keycaps reduce wobbling.
The display itself has a touchscreen, allowing users to navigate with just a tap of the finger, just like with a standard tablet. You can use universal pens to interact with the screen as well. Fast, easy connections with the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 are made possible with its two USB-C type ports, headphone/microphone jack, microSD card slot, etc.
Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 Google Integration
The “Hey Google” voice command technology is highly responsive. With just your voice, you can get much work done, whether it’s finding documents, sending email, or listening to music. In addition, there is no need to switch screens, as the feature allows you to control other smart home devices.
One of the best things about Samsung’s Chromebook 2 is its brilliant QLED screen in full HD, with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. QLED panels are not the same as the OLED panels. Instead, the QLED displays are LED-backlit LCD screens that utilize Samsung’s innovative quantum-dot technology.
Configurations of the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 may vary a bit. There is an Intel Core i3 (10th Generation) processor and Intel UHD graphics with the cheaper base configuration models. The memory and storage options include 4GB RAM / 64GB SSD and 8GB RAM / 128GB SSD. Expect 2.1-GHz base processing speed and 4.1 with Turbo Boost.
The battery life can last for a decent amount after charging up. It’s a 45.5-Wh capacity battery, and Samsung lists its maximum life of 13 hours.
Lastly, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 has good sound quality with AKG stereo speakers (1.5W x 2) and Smart Amp technology, which detects things like speaker excursion and temperature so that users can turn up toe volume 178% higher than what the vast majority of laptops out there are capable of. The Operating System is ChromeOS.
