The convertible touchscreen laptop will be released equipped with 4GB of RAM and 32 GB internal storage. In addition, the device supports Samsung Stylus powered by Wacom.

The device costs $550.

The dillemma

While everyone is excited about the imminent release of Samsung Chromebook Pro 2-in-1 laptop, several reports are not so good. According to recent claims, the operating system of the upcoming device will not be available until the middle part of June 2017. #Chrome OS 59 is anticipated to update the Android support to Nougat. This update is vital for improved performance as well as for the Android apps on the Chrome operating system.

If the latest convertible touchscreen laptop from Samsung is to be released on May 28, it just means that the pre-orders will be getting a device that will be updated a few weeks later. In other words, they will be getting a premature and a half-baked device. This information is yet to be confirmed by the South Korean tech giant. We will keep you posted about this information as soon as it becomes available. #Pre Order
