It was first reported last month that Samsung was possibly developing a new 2-in-1 Chromebook with a detachable keyboard. Some more information has surfaced about the device. A new report claims that Samsung’s new Chromebook is going to feature a stowable stylus. The information is based on new commits in the Chromium Repository.


Samsung unveiled the Chromebook Pro and Chromebook Plus earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. CES 2018 is just around the corner so if it does have a new Chromebook in the pipeline, we can expect it to be unveiled in the near future.

The new commits have multiple references to inserting and ejecting the stylus as well as a separate stylus tools menu that reacts to these actions. That’s expected behavior from a Samsung device that features the S Pen stylus.

It’s unclear at this point in time what sort of specifications will this new Chromebook offer. Whether it’s going to be a high-end device like the Google Pixelbook remains to be seen. For all we know, it could offer modest specifications at a competitive price point.

Samsung hasn’t said anything about its plans for a new Chromebook at this point in time. We’ll have to wait until CES 2018 next month in order to find out if the company really is going to launch one.
