Samsung

PanARMENIAN.Net - Samsung is gearing up to launch its own Chromebook – a laptop running Google's Chrome operating system (OS) – complete with a stylus as soon as next week, CNBC reports.

The Samsung Chromebook Pro – which was previously codenamed "Kevin" – was listed on electronics retailer B&H's website and on Adorama before being taken down, according to technology blog "Chrome Unboxed."

Key specs of the device include: 12.3-inch touchscreen display, 360-degree hinge, 32GB of storage, as well as Stylus that Samsung is calling "PEN."

The device will cost $499 with a release date of October 24, according to the listings on the e-commerce websites. This may change however. The pricing is higher than the majority of the Chromebook market with devices in this category selling from around $180 to $300. It appears Samsung is keen to position the Chromebook Pro as a premium device.

Samsung said it cannot comment on rumors when contacted by CNBC.

Chrome OS is Google's open-source operating system designed for larger screens. The search giant has been making constant updates with the OS now able to support the Google Play store and Android apps.
