The Chromebook market is not entirely owned by companies like Microsoft and Google. Samsung has its own share of contribution too. However, their Chromebooks haven’t always been smashing successes either. At the same time, the South Korean giant hasn’t been discouraged due to this. The company is believed to be working on a new innovation this time.
To recall, back in November last year, Chrome Unboxed found a list of code references that suggested that an unidentified, yet-to-be-announced device by Samsung was going to be called, “Nautlius.” The device was detachable by nature and ran on the Chrome operating system. Initially, experts naturally assumed that the device might be a Galaxy Book from Google’s end.
According to a report by Engadget, the Chromebook was seen as running on the seventh generation Intel Core chip, just like its arch-rival Windows. The code also further indicated a new type of presence in terms of its camera specifications i.e. Sony IMX258 camera. This is the same camera that is integrated into LG’s G6 smartphone. Majority of the Chromebooks come featuring a 720p camera at the best. They are believed to be the first Chrome operating the system-compatible camera.
There isn’t too much information regarding this device available as of yet. However, what is confirmed that the upcoming device is going to be detachable by nature. It also goes on to suggest that the device will be compact, i.e. 12-inch or smaller. The more important information to unravel at the moment is the device’s possible launch date.
There are chances that Samsung might introduce the “Nautlius” detachable tablet at the official CES event next week. However, there is no guarantee for the same. When it comes to price, given that it does not make use of low-grade processors, it definitely won’t be an entry-level product. It is going to compete directly with other products like Pixelbook and Surface Pro.
