This 2-in-1 machine transforms to a tablet from a laptop using the 360-degree hinge, hence the name.
You can flip the keyboard to the back if you just want to interact with its 12.4-inch TFT touchscreen that has a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. There’s also a 720p webcam on top of the display for online classes.
Under the hood, it’s powered by an Intel Celeron N4500 processor with Intel UHD graphics — a popular choice on machines like this.
It’s paired with 4GB LPDDR4X RAM and an option between 64GB and 128GB of eMMC storage. There’s also a 45.5WHr battery, which Samsung says can last for up to 10 hours.
Port selection is quite ample. We have two USB Type-C, two USB Type-A 3.2, a microSD card slot, a 3.5mm headphone/mic combo, and a nano security slot that’s perfect for school computer rooms.
The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 360 comes in two flavors: There’s the 4GB/64GB model for EUR419 (around Php24,100) while the 4GB/128GB variant comes with 4G LTE connectivity for those who are always on the go. It retails for EUR499 (around Php28,700). They will be initially available in Europe with the release details in markets like the Philippines are yet to be known.
