Samsung’s New Chromebook 4 released with refined design for $229 – Full specs and prices

Nearly four years after the debut of one of the best Chromebooks we ever got our hands-on, Samsung’s Chromebook 3, the company has announced a follow-up to its core Chromebook laptop. The new 11.6-inch Chromebook 4 has been released today for a starting price of $229.99, along with the larger 15.6-inch Chromebook 4 Plus that starts at $299.99. Today, we tell all about the newest Chromebook’s specifications and cool new features that we guarantee will make your life easier.

Change is good

A lot has changed in the Chrome OS market since the Chromebook 3 was introduced, and the Chromebook 4 reflects several of those changes, starting with a slightly more modern, high-end look that’s akin to the Asus Chromebook Flip C302. Samsung went with Intel Celeron N4000 processors across the line, and both Chromebook 4s charge via USB-C: the 11.6-inch model has a single USB-C port, while the 15.6-inch model has two, one on each side. Both also include a 30W USB-C power adapter in the box and a single USB Type-A port and headphone / microphone-in jack.

The more, the merrier

Multiple configurations in both sizes will be available, differing in RAM (4GB or 6GB LPDDR4) and onboard storage available (32GB or 64GB eMMC); all configs feature a microSD card slot. The screen resolution of the 11.6-inch Chromebook 4’s LED screen is unchanged from its predecessor’s 1366 x 768. The 15.6-inch Chromebook 4 Plus’ LED display offers 1080p resolution.

Battery life beyond expectations

Samsung estimates that the smaller Chromebook 4 will yield 12.5 hours of battery life, while the 15.6-inch model will last up to 10.5 hours per charge. Instead of putting a larger battery into the Chromebook 4 Plus, the same 39Wh battery is used for both devices.
