Samsung’s name is probably easily associated with smartphones. But the company has a myriad of other products and divisions out there, all of them are pretty important for the industry. Among them, we have the company’s computer division which is always getting some refreshments. Early this year, the company revealed a new Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. The product was revealed at CES 2020, however, the company didn’t mention when it would be up for sale.
Now the answer is coming! The Galaxy Chromebook will be officially available in the United States from April 6.
Samsung Galaxy Chromebook specifications
The first Galaxy Chromebook stands against the competition with a 13.3-inch 4K AMOLED touchscreen display. That’s a gorgeous display and the touchscreen functionality is a plus. Under the hood, the new laptop boasts Intel’s 10th gen Core i5 chipset paired with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage.
Interestingly enough, the tablet includes an 8MP camera placed above the keyboard. You can use it for taking the picture while you’re using it in the tablet mode. When on laptop mode, you can use a modest 1MP camera that is enough for video-calls. Since this is a Galaxy device, Samsung equipped it with a stylus allowing you to draw in the screen. There’s a USB Type-C port setting aside the stylus slot. Google Assistant is present here, along with a Stereo Speaker and a backlit keyboard. Interestingly enough, you also get a fingerprint scanner.
Other features include the new Wi-Fi 6 standard, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a UFS/MicroSD card slot.

The device retails for $999 and is available in two fancy color variants – Fiesta Red and Mercury Grey. Unfortunately, there are still no details pointing to international availability.
