Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 announced, coming to Best Buy on June 24

This should improve battery life though, as the PC now comes with an Intel Celeron 3965Y processor, rather than the ARM chip that we saw in the original model. On the camera front, it features 13-megapixel rear camera with f/1.9 aperture and a 1-megapixel front-facing camera. Features such as a built-in pen and 1-megapixel front-facing camera are returning to the new model, the release noted, maintaining a focus on productivity and taking advantage of the convertible form factor.

That Celeron two-core, two-thread processor isn't the fastest thing on the block, but it's an upgrade from the Cortex-A72 Rockchip 3399 found in the first-generation Chromebook Plus. When the keyboard is flipped, it can serve as its rear camera.

The V2 looks mostly the same compared to the 2017 Chromebook Plus, but there are a few important changes inside and out that should make it a much better experience for everyone - one of the most notable being the silicon that powers everything.

The Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 will be available from Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com starting June 24th for $499.99. While some may only think of low-priced entries when they hear the word Chromebook, devices like Google's own Pixelbook show that there is a market for premium devices running Chrome OS. Write a note, sketch out an idea, edit a document, sign a document, or even use the pen to magnify small text and capture carefully cropped screenshots. Moreover, the new design presents curved-cap keyboard that resists spills 60cc.

Beyond specs, the hardware is capable of the same transformation from laptop into tablet, but maybe more importantly, you'll still get the S Pen experience you had previous year. The 2.93-pound Chromebook Plus V2 also has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, along with a microSD card slot for adding up to 400GB of additional storage. Elsewhere, there are two USB-C ports and one USB 3.0, a microSD card reader and two 1.5 W speakers.
