TEKNOKU.me – After nearly four years of non-updating, Samsung’s Chromebook laptops finally got a refresh. Chromebook 4, which was officially introduced by Samsung, brought new designs and specifications.
Samsung Chromebook 4 laptops have two versions, namely the regular version and the “plus” version. The difference is in the landscape, one 11.6 inches wide and the Plus version 15.6 inches. Both screens are made with LCD panels and a 1,366 x 768 resolution.
Both also have different designs. For Chromebook 4 with a smaller screen, the bezel around the screen looks thick. While Chromebook 4 with a 15.6-inch screen bezel looks thinner.
At first glance, the face of the Samsung Chromebook 4 with a 15.6-inch screen looks similar to the older version of the MacBook Pro. While the design of the Samsung Chromebook 4 11.6 inches looks like an Acer Chromebook Flip C302.
Samsung Chromebook 4’s body also looks more solid than its predecessor. Its thickness is made with a thinner size so that it looks more modern and contemporary.
The innards also got quite a lot of updates. The kitchen is equipped with an Intel Celeron N4000 chipset. This chipset is paired with two choices of RAM and storage namely 4GB and 6GB RAM, and 32GB and 64GB eMMC storage.
Both Samsung Chromebook 4 are now equipped with USB Type C ports for charging.
But the number of available USB C ports varies. The 11 inch Samsung Chromebook only has one USB C port, while the 15-inch screen version has two ports.
Samsung claims that the Chromebook 4 battery for the smaller screen version can last up to 12.5 hours of usage time. As for the larger screen version it can last up to 10.5 hours.
Like its predecessor, the Samsung Chromebook 4 is not equipped with a touch screen. The laptop with the ChromeOS operating system made by Google was sold at 230 USD for the regular version and 300 USD for the version with a bigger screen.
