New Samsung Chromebook 2 to feature a Note 3 style faux-leather finish (updated)
Samsung first introduced the faux-leather back pattern on the Galaxy Note 3 last year, and has since used the same in a slew of other devices. The same design is seen on the Galaxy Note 3, the Galaxy S4 Black Edition, the Galaxy Grand 2 and the gargantuan Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. According to an image leaked by @evleaks, it looks like Samsung is all set to launch its first Chromebook with a faux-leather trim. The image does not reveal any further information other than the faux-leather stitched design and a Chrome logo.
Chromebooks is one segment through which Samsung can increase its market share in the mobile processor segment. It has been indicated earlier in the week that Samsung’s next Chromebook would feature Exynos hardware in addition to a variant that comes with Intel’s hardware. Retailer listings for the device listed availability in sizes of 11.6 and 13.3 inches. The 11.6-inch version was said to feature an Exynos 5 SoC, 4 GB of RAM and a 16 GB SSD, while the 13.3-inch model will likely feature Intel hardware. The base variant of the new Chromebook is set to cost $299.
