Samsung Preparing High-End 'Nautilus' Chromebook

The folks over at Chrome Unboxed have discovered clues heavily hinting that Samsung is working on a new high-end Chromebook. This project, dubbed ‘Nautilus’ is apparently a detachable Chrome OS tablet rather than a typical notebook. Unlike other tablets however, its hardware is a surprising mix of powerful Intel chips and powerful camera. Specifically a 7th generation Intel Core processor like Windows notebooks, but will be using a Sony IMX258 camera. Those who are familiar with smartphone technology will recognize the name from the LG G6. This is a considerable upgrade in comparison to typical Chromebook solutions. Those tend to be the 720p variety since that product line is typically for budget users.

Ready for CES 2018?

With the Consumer Electronics Show only a week away, fans are hoping that ‘Nautilus’ will make an appearance at the show floor. Although not much details are available yet, the use of a 7th generation Intel processor suggests that this product is ready sooner rather than later. Plus, the use of this processor suggests that this is a more powerful unit than what people normally expect from Chromebooks. With more powerful hardware and better camera, also often comes higher price. Which is why assuming that the Nautilus is a high-end product is not a far stretch.

The rest of its specifications will reveal whether this is set to compete against Google’s own Pixelbook. Considering the Pixelbook starts at $999 USD, this product could also undercut it price-wise while delivering a unique feature-set.
