When Samsung launched the Galaxy Chromebook, one of the key features of the laptop was its 4K display. Given that Chromebooks in generally are typically marketed as budget laptops, having a 4K display was a nice touch, but reviews have found it less than favorable, especially with its terrible battery life.
Samsung might have learned from their mistake because according to a tweet by WalkingCat, it seems that the next Galaxy Chromebook could see Samsung ditch the 4K display in favor of better battery life and a potentially cheaper price tag. The tweet claims that the new Galaxy Chromebook will feature a 13.3-inch QLED display, a 10th-gen Intel Core i3 processor, and an impressive 12 hours of battery life, way more than its predecessor.

The report also claims that the laptop could cost $799, which makes it about $200 cheaper than the previous model, and could appeal to those who are in the market for a new laptop that could last them all day. There’s no word on when it will launch, but with CES 2021 around the corner, there’s a good chance that the laptop could be announced then, so check back with us in the next few weeks for the details.
