Earlier yesterday, it was reported by the online Chromebook hub Chrome Unboxed that Samsung had accidentally let loose details on its upcoming chromebook Pro line of high-end laptops. The news went live when several retailers posted specs and pictures of the upcoming Chromebook, as well as a landing page for the product that was posted on Samsung’s own website.
The information was quickly taken down when the admins realized their mistake, but Chrome Unboxed was still able to steal the spec list before the info went dark. Codenamed “Kevin”, the Samsung Chromebook Pro is slated to come with a 360° 12.3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 2400 x 1600, a 2GHz hexa-core ARM processor, and 4GB of RAM with 32GB of local flash storage to boot.

With only 2.38 pounds of heft and 13.9mm of clearance at its thickest point, it’s clear that Samsung is going for the “ultra-mobile” portion of the Chromebook market, a large niche of its users to say the least. The Samsung Chromebook Pro will supposedly run for upwards of 10 hours on a single charge, and will go on sale to the general public on October 24th for $499.
Though some Chromebook users may find this pricey, one only needs to look at the pictures of this ultra-sleek, highly-sexy laptop to know that it will be well worth the cost if Samsung puts their trademark polish and precision engineering to work.
