  • Samsung has officially unveiled the Samsung Chromebook 4 and Chromebook 4+.
  • The former has an 11.6-inch display whereas the latter offers a larger 15.6-inch one.
  • Pricing starts at $230 for the 4 and $300 for the 4+.

The Samsung Chromebook 3 has long been one of the best budget offerings in the Chromebook space. On October 7, 2019, Samsung announced its successor in the form of the Chromebook 4 (and 4+).

While there are now two entries in Samsung's budget lineup, the differences are pretty minimal. The regular Chromebook 4 comes equipped with an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display, one USB-C port, and weighs in at 2.60lbs. Comparatively, the Chromebook 4+ has a larger and sharper 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 display, two USB-C ports, and is a bit heftier at 3.75lbs.

Samsung notes that both models have "undergone extensive durability testing to ensure they are as solid as sleek." Both Chromebooks come with eight military-grade durability standards, meaning you have great resistance against temperature, dust, and "other shocks."
