Expanding the Possibilities of Chrome OS with Galaxy Chromebook 2, Available Today
By Hassan Anjum, Director of Product Strategy, Samsung Electronics America
When Samsung entered the Chromebook space back in 2011, our devices quickly became classroom mainstays. Students loved the speed and simplicity of Chrome OS, while school districts prized its security and affordability. With this innovative new OS, Samsung leveraged its engineering expertise and took Google’s trailblazing OS to new heights. Because as those young students became adults, we knew they’d come to expect more from their laptops.
Almost a decade later, we reinvented the premium Chrome space with Galaxy Chromebook, the first ever 4K AMOLED Chromebook. And we’re proud to say it’s not just those users that have grown—it’s Chromebook, too.
From expanding the market with entry-level Chromebook 3, to setting a new standard with Galaxy Chromebook, Samsung has been a leader in pushing the possibilities of the Chrome experience. With each release, we’ve worked hard to design Chromebooks that deliver the features consumers love most: from pen support and sleek design, to immersive displays and strong battery life.
That willingness to push the envelope is why today, Chromebooks are no longer limited to the classroom. These premium and affordable laptops are found everywhere: at our offices, in our homes, on the go, and wherever we need them—and the numbers speak for themselves. In recent years, Chromebook demand has been explosive, with more than 30 million units sold in 20201. Consumers are increasingly choosing Chromebooks to help them work, play, and stay connected from home, and Samsung’s innovations have played a key role in helping them do just that.
In parallel, Chromebooks are also quickly becoming a device of choice for employers. With built-in security, automatic Chrome OS software updates, virus protection, and the same cloud-based tools as a PC, it meets any organization’s security demands while keeping employees seamlessly connected at a cost-effective price.
Looking forward, we know demand for premium Chromebooks will only grow—so we’ve been hard at work expanding our portfolio to offer even more choice.
Today, Galaxy Chromebook 2—the first-ever QLED Chromebook—is available for purchase exclusively at Best Buy, Samsung.com and B2B channels. Just like Galaxy Chromebook, this pathbreaking laptop continues to push the boundaries of what a Chromebook can do. It’s a premium device that combines the features consumers love most, like a stunning display and pen compatibility, with the flexibility and ease of Chrome OS—all at a more affordable price.
When it’s time to unwind after a long day of work, Galaxy Chromebook 2 has you covered. As the world’s first QLED Chromebook, this laptop’s display produces millions of different colors—with 100% color volume—so every scene in your favorite movies and shows is crystal clear. Plus, Smart Amp technology means your Chromebook’s audio is louder than standard speakers, so you can immerse yourself in your favorite playlist. And after more than 60% of consumers reported loving the Fiesta Red finish on last year’s Galaxy Chromebook, we’re excited to bring that same color choice to the new Galaxy Chromebook 2.
As the nine-to-five day grows into something far more organic, and multi-tasking becomes routine, Galaxy Chromebook 2 has the tools you need to succeed when you’re on the clock. Whether it’s time to join your morning meeting, tune into your lecture, or drill down on your next task, Galaxy Chromebook 2 was designed to help you effortlessly navigate the everyday. With ultra-fast connectivity, all-day battery life, and pen compatibility, this Chromebook is the ideal companion for elevating productivity—both virtually and in-person.
Ten years later, Samsung continues to shift the paradigm for what a Chromebook can be. With Galaxy Chromebook 2, we’ve listened carefully to our users, and included the premium features they love most—at a price they can afford. Whether you’re working, playing, or discovering new passions, Galaxy Chromebook 2 is up to the task.
