While much of the focus over the past day has been on the insane number of deals for Prime Day, the tech world hasn’t just stopped until Prime Day is over. Earlier this morning, the folks over at Android Police spotted a previously unannounced Chromebook from Samsung. This new Galaxy Chromebook Go packs a pretty solid spec-sheet, although full judgment will have to be reserved until we find out more.
- Display: 14-inch HD (1366 x 768)
- Processor: Intel Celeron Processor N4500

- Connectivity: LTE (optional) / Wi-Fi 6 / Bluetooth v5.1
- Ports: (2) USB-C / (1) USB-A v3.2 / 3.5mm Headphone Jack / MicroSD / Nano SIM

This Chromebook sports a 14-inch HD+ display, while being powered by the Intel Celeron N4500 chipset and either 4GB or 8GB of RAM. Storage goes up to 128GB, and there are plenty of ports to go around. From the images on the press page, it would appear as though the keyboard is backlit, which is a nice touch.
What may help the Galaxy Chromebook Go stand out from the crowd could be the optional LTE connectivity. To fit in with the whole “Go” moniker, it would make sense for this to feature the option for LTE, but it’s definitely something worth considering whenever the Chromebook Go is unveiled.
Speaking of which, there is no information available as to pricing or availability. We won’t be surprised if the Chromebook Go either just “appears” on Amazon or Best Buy. Or maybe Samsung will drop a press release detailing more information about the different configuration options, along with a pre-order date. Until then, keep your eyes peeled.
