While Samsung may still be rethinking its smartphone strategy for the coming year, they are apparently ready with their next step in the Chromebook market.

The Samsung Chromebook Pro starts off the spec sheet with its 12.3″ 2K (2400 x 1600) display with an aspect ratio of 3:2. Being a Chromebook, the device is of a conventional laptop form factor made of aluminum, but it does incorporate a 360° hinge as well as a stylus (called just “PEN”, and no longer called the S Pen), which lends its additional use-case scenarios of a bigger tablet. The laptop is reportedly 13.9mm thin and is 1.08kg light.

The Chromebook Pro comes with a 2GHz hexa-core Rockchip SoC with 2x Cortex-A72 and 4x Cortex-A53 cores, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which is pretty tough to swallow. The device also comes with two USB Type-C ports, an SD card slot and a headphone jack. The battery capacity is not mentioned, but the battery life is claimed to be at 10 hours. And being a Chromebook, it runs on Chrome OS, with the ability to run Android apps via the Google Play Store.

Pricing and release information is unavailable at this stage. The device did go up for preorder on Adorama for a price tag of $499, but the listing has since been pulled down. We will have to wait on Samsung to make the Chromebook Pro official to know more about its availability.
