Under Samsung’s Solve For Tomorrow programme, the brand has launched their Samsung Chromebook 2 360 laptop. The laptop has gone official primarily to “focus on inspiring and enabling the next generations of innovators and leaders, powered by Samsung’s innovative products.” Going by this, we can clearly understand that the laptop is not meant for heavy usage or editing. Rather, it is to be used by students for their projects and the like.
The laptop went official during the BETT 2022 session in London, UK. Joe Walsh, Director of B2B at Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland, said that, ““The synergy between Samsung and BETT 2022, designed to inspire and power the next generation of innovators, makes this the ideal opportunity to unveil the Galaxy Chromebook 2 360.” Further, he adds to it by saying, “Built with flexibility and versatility at its heart, the 360-degree convertible touchscreen design offers the best of laptop and tablet experiences, to provide a go-to device for students on the move.”
