Intel processor and rear-facing camera for second generation Samsung Chromebook Plus

Samsung's Chromebook Plus (V2) gets turbocharged with an Intel processor

Samsung's Chromebook Plus (V2) makes another useful change by doubling up on the cameras, offering both front and rear-facing models.

Tipping the scales at 2.91 pounds, the new Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 features a 12.2-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080 resolution) display that effortlessly flips back to transform the system from notebook to tablet to sketchbook (yes, a stylus is included).

Samsung's Chromebook Plus launched a year ago for the price of $449. "For those who choose Chrome OS, we wanted to give them a lot of reasons to choose the new Samsung Chromebook Plus, as it is designed especially for people who never stop moving, to match their pace and magnify their creativity", said Alanna Cotton, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Samsung Electronics America.

At $499, the Chromebook Plus V2 is considered a premium Chromebook albeit a tier below Samsung's $600 Chromebook Pro and HP's new $600 detachable 2-in-1 Chromebook x2, which has an Intel Core m3 processor and a more impressive 8GB of RAM.

Trump commutes sentence after appeal by Kim Kardashian
Cameras captured Johnson's reunion with family members Wednesday night after a van transported her outside the prison. And she also has connections to the White House: Her husband, rapper Kanye West, is a well-known Trump supporter.

Samsung has now added a 13-Megapixel rear camera alongside the 1-Megapixel front camera that can be used for video calling and other purposes. The Chromebook Plus (V2) is now powered by a lower-end Celeron processor, which should mean that the device will be faster than its predecessor.

Dubbed as Chromebook Plus V2, the device comes with a price tag of $499.99 (approx Rs 33,975) and it will be available starting from June 24 at Best Buy online and offline stores. Not only this, but the display panel's ratio has changed from 3:2 to 16:10.

The new Chromebook comes loaded with a built-in pen and offers a light and thin design language. It was one of the few Chromebooks on the market at that time that came with the Google Play Store installed out of the box. It also benefits from a curved-cap keyboard that promises to be able to deal with small liquid spillages of up to 60cc. In terms of connectivity, the laptop has two USB Type-C ports, one USB 3.0 port, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
