The new Chromebook ia expected to pack Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor, an application processor based on ARM's "big.LITTLE" technology with four low-power cores and four high-performance cores. Graphics will be powered by the Mali-T628 GPU core.
The device's display is said to output at 2560 x 1600 and will have storage options of 16GB or 32GB, as well as USB 3.0 support, a seven-hour battery, and a weight of just over 1kg.
Its retail price should range between $250 and $300.
Chromebooks run on Google?s Chrome OS. Data is not stored locally but on Google?s cloud server, and thus neither large-capacity storage devices nor high-performance hardware components are required.
