Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 announced, goes on sale June 24

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

Samsung has announced the second version of its premium Chromebook Plus convertible laptop/tablet. The Chromebook Plus V2 comes with front and rear cameras as well as a built-in pen that can detect 4096 levels of pressure.

Samsung, the leader in the premium Chromebook market, has put a focus on enhancing the communication experience of the target market. When the keyboard is flipped, it can serve as its rear camera.

The new Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 doesn't change much when it comes to the overall look of the machine, but it makes a ton of subtle improvements all over the place. The 2018 model runs on an Intel CPU instead of the ARM processor, bringing it in line with the Samsung Chromebook Pro which launched alongside the first Plus but with a high-end Intel Core m3 processor. This must result in faster productivity and better picture quality.

Dubbed Chromebook Plus V2, the next-generation model doesn't stray too far from the size and style of the original model. It is a 2-in-1 portable device that can convert into a touchscreen tablet simply by folding the laptop by 360 degrees. It will even stow inside the Chromebook Plus V2's chassis when not in use.

While holding Chromebook Plus V2, its curved edges offer strong grip.

If you've already picked up a VPN, you can easily set up an endpoint in the US, UK, or Canada and stream the coverage from there. That means fewer casual viewers for Fox and a missed opportunity to promote an American team.

Like the previous model, the Samsung Chromebook plus (V2) comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

The display is encompassed in 12.2 inc. screen size.

The Chromebook Plus (V2) can still be folded into tablet mode and will have a built-in pen stylus. That means that along with a lower resolution display, the panel's aspect ratio has also changed from a 3:2 to 16:10 this year. Samsung didn't provide any battery capacity information, but the internal pack is replenished through the USB-C connectors and has "all-day" life. It can handle the pressure up to 4,000 level of sensitivity.

Interestingly, Samsung has outfitted this device with a 1MP front-facing webcam and a 13MP camera that boasts F/1.9 aperture and autofocus on the keyboard deck.
