Were the Samsung Chromebook 2 a boat it would be careening towards the bottom of the ocean with gusto right about now; the leaks just keep on coming.
Following our first glimpses of the device, in all its resplendent/tacky (delete as applicable) faux-leather casing glory at the weekend, a new snatch of info adds purported prices to the mix.
Confirming information inadvertently ‘leaked’ by American retailer B&H last week, the Samsung Chromebook 2 will come in two different sized models:
- 11.6-inch (1366×1080) at $319.99
- 13.3-inch (1920×1080) at $399.99
Both devices will be powered by Exynos 5 Octa processors — in keeping with previous reports.
All of this information comes from a post published on, and subsequently pulled from, tech site Ubergizmo.
That article also says that Samsung will bundle “software worth more than $100” on the devices for free. It’s not exactly clear what ‘software’ this is, but it may be a mangled reference to the 100GB Google Drive offer all new Chromebooks are eligible for.
No other details were included in this specific article.
Piecing Together The Rest
The prices listed by Ubergizmo do chime with the prices listed on the B&H website. Those listings touted the 11.6-inch version at the lower price of $299.99, with 4GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD.
The 13.3-inch model matched the $399.99 relayed in this latest leak.
More information as and when we hear it.
