    The demand for affordable laptops and tablets was through the roof during 2020, thanks to the pandemic. Samsung managed to ship close to 10 million Galaxy Tab devices in Q4 2020 and over 31 million tablets over the course of the whole year. Now, the South Korean tech giant's Chromebook shipment numbers have been published.

    The company managed to ship a million Chromebook devices in Q4 2020 according to market research firm Canalys. That's a staggering 6.3x growth compared to Q4 2019. In all of 2020, Samsung managed to ship close to 2 million Chrome OS laptops, which is a 4x growth compared to 2019.

    Although the South Korean firm had the highest growth in the global Chromebook market, it still has a lot of room to grow. HP was the biggest Chromebook brand in 2020 with 9.4 million shipments and a 31% market share. Lenovo shipped 6.8 million Chromebooks and acquired a 22% share of the market. Dell (15% market share) and Acer (14% market share) were ranked third and fourth, respectively, with shipments of 4.6 million and 4.3 million.

    Samsung launched the Galaxy Chromebook last year, and it was the first Chrome OS-powered laptop with a 4K AMOLED screen. The company had also launched two affordable ChromebooksChromebook 4 and Chromebook 4+—a few months prior to that. It recently unveiled the Galaxy Chromebook 2, the first Chromebook in the world with a QLED screen. The new laptop also features improved battery life compared to the original Galaxy Chromebook.
