    Will Samsung launch Chromebook X laptops with premium hardware?

    Google could soon launch a new standard called Chromebook X for devices featuring ChromeOS, reports 9to5Google. According to the publication, laptops with the Chromebook X tag will be premium, offering better hardware/specifications than low-end and mid-range ChromeOS devices. Google reportedly aims to introduce this new standard to make it easier for consumers to differentiate premium Chromebooks from the rest.

    A ChromeOS laptop has to meet the requirements Google sets to get the Chromebook X badge. For starters, it has to feature processors based on AMD’s Zen 2+ or Zen 3 architecture or any SKU from Intel’s Core 12th Gen lineup. Google might most likely add new processors to the list as they arrive in the market. The laptop should also have a certain amount of RAM, a good-quality video conferencing camera, and a high-end display. Since Samsung already offers ChromeOS devices with powerful processors and premium hardware, such as the Galaxy Chromebook 2, there is a real possibility that we might see Chromebook X devices from Samsung very soon.

    A ChromeOS device certified under this program will feature the Chromebook X badge on its chassis, letting people know that it is a premium device capable of carrying out tasks more advanced than what entry-level or mid-range models can handle. Chromebook X-certified tablets/laptops will also feature a unique boot screen, which will have an ‘X’ next to the ChromeOS logo. This will be another way of telling that it is a Chromebook X device.

    Chromebook X devices could cost upwards of $400 in the US. Google could introduce the new standard by the end of this year, and we may see a new Chromebook X device from Samsung sometime later this year or next year.
