A few months ago we heard reports on Samsung honing in on creating a whole new Chromebook for their potential customers. Following stories exposed its codename “Nautilus” and some of its features like the device will be a 2-in-1 Chromebook with a removable keyboard set, support for stylus pen and is going to be powered by Kaby Lake. In spite of this, news relating to Samsung’s forthcoming Chromebook also have already been appearing from time to time and they have additionally indicated that the system will be made available in various choices such as Core m3, i5 or i7, storage capacity upto 256GB, a 10.6 inch or 12 inch display screen as well as Samsung’s popular Stylus Pen.


Recent reports from chromeunboxed make sure that the Samsung product “Nautilus” is definitely a Chromebook with removable keyboard set and will be supported by a 7th-gen Intel processor. The code references also disclosed the existence of the Sony IMX258 image sensor in this Chromebook which implies that the Chromebook will include a camera unit with this sensor. Sony IMX258 is a 13MP Exmor RS 1/3.06 inch sensor which has been used by LG in their high-end devices such as the LG G6. If camera feature is believed to be true, then it is going to be the first device to have a 13MP camera in the Chromebook series. It’s a major progress for Chromebooks since hardly any provider has set a camera with a resolution above 720p in their devices.

As we have only restricted information, it will be exciting to observe the new upgrades and optimizations going to apply on this forthcoming Chromebook. The camera integrated on currently available Chromebooks are not that impressive. So with a top-end camera sensor along with an excellent software will be ideal for taking photographs. Samsung is predicted to introduce their brand new product at CES 2018 taking place in Las Vegas.
