Samsung announces the Chromebook 3 at CES 2016

Chromebook 3

Samsung has announced the latest device in its Chromebook lineup at CES 2016. Simply dubbed the Chromebook 3, Samsung is touting the Chrome-powered laptop as an affordable and portable notebook, with the Chromebook 3 weighing only 2.5 pounds and featuring a metallic body that’s only 17 mm thick.

The display on the Chromebook 3 is a 11.6-inch unit with a standard resolution of 1366×768 pixels, and the horsepower is provided by an Intel Celeron N3050 chipset with either 2GB or 4GB of RAM. Given the laptop runs Chrome OS, the run-of-the-mill hardware shouldn’t be an issue for most tasks. On the connectivity front, the Chromebook 3 offers Wi-Fi, two USB ports (one a 3.0 port and the other a 2.0 port), an HDMI port and a card reader. Bluetooth 4.0 is supported as well.

Battery life is quoted at 11 hours by Samsung, though real-life figures are expected to be lower. There’s 16GB of eMMC storage inside, two 1.5 W stereo speakers, a 720p front camera, and an ergonomic keyboard with “UL certified curved keycaps”. The Chromebook 3 will be available in early 2016 at select retailers; pricing hasn’t been announced, but it should be priced well similar to most Chromebooks on the market.
