    Samsung might launch a Chromebook Plus laptop with premium features

    Samsung is among the first brands that started making Chrome OS laptops, and the company has a decent lineup of Galaxy Chromebooks. However, when Google announced its Chromebook Plus program a few days ago, Samsung was missing from the launch lineup of Chromebook Plus laptops, which surprised a few people. However, the company seems to be developing a Chromebook Plus laptop.

    The folks over at ChromeUnboxed have managed to find a code commit from Samsung that points toward a device codenamed ‘Pirrha.' There is reportedly a variant of the device called Nissa, and it all points toward the development of a Chromebook Plus device from Samsung. It is being reported that the device will use the same processor as the Lenovo Chromebook Slim 3i (12th-gen Intel Core i3-N305). However, there is a chance that it could use the Core i3-N100 or Core i3-N200, but Samsung might use the higher-end processor as Lenovo is already using it.

    What are Chromebook Plus laptops?

    Google's Chromebook Plus program certifies premium Chrome OS-based laptops that use relatively higher-end specifications. Google recommends using a 12th Gen Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen 3 7000 series (or better) processor, 8GB RAM (or more), 128GB storage (or more), a Full HD 1080p webcam (or better), and a screen with Full HD resolution. Laptops that qualify the Chromebook Plus badging will get 10 years of software update support from Google.

    Samsung is already using similar or better specifications in some of its existing Galaxy Chromebook laptops. If the South Korean firm can throw in some of its premium features, including an OLED screen, an S Pen, and some of its extra frills in the software, the company could be onto something really good here. We hope Samsung launches its upcoming Galaxy Chromebook Plus within the next few weeks so that it isn't too late to the party.
