Sparkling orange or silver, your Galaxy Chromebook 2? The next Samsung computer using Google’s operating system – Chrome OS – is said to be on track early next year. It could be announced at CES 2021, completely virtual this year, or at the Unpacked conference, expected in early January.
One thing is certain, it would be cut from the same wood as the first version and should therefore be offered at a prohibitive price, mainly across the Atlantic.

The first Galaxy Chromebook, launched at CES 2020, is still listed starting at $ 999 in the United States and has never been marketed in France.
