We have yet another LG G3 in today’s repertoire of news, but that is not all the Korean manufacturer has for us. The LG Chromebase has been released, while Lenovo hits the Chrome OS market with its N20 and N20p Chromebooks.
The LG G3 has been leaked like no other. If the recent high-res (albeit a bit covered) images and previous leaks were not enough, we now have another two images for you. These showcase features the other images gave us no clues on, though.
According to the latest photos, the LG G3 could very well come with a replaceable battery. In addition, one of the images shows what looks like a metal back. Could it be?
Opinion: I highly doubt the LG G3’s design will include metal parts. LG has always focused on plastic builds. Well-put-together plastic, but still plastic. Not to mention, all leaks have shown what looks like a plastic back. If this image is real, maybe it’s just plastic made to look like brushed metal?
Let’s step into the Chrome OS world. The first round comes from LG, with the release of the Chromebase. After testing the LG Chromebase at MWC 2014, I didn’t walk out too impressed. Yes, it’s a great Chrome OS device and features the very best display any Chrome OS device can offer (without counting the Chromebook Pixel, of course).
The lack of portability is a huge factor to consider, though, so it was really all about the price. The LG Chromebase is now available in the US and we finally know how hard it will hit your bank account.
Opinion: It’s not a bad price for a computer that can double as a Chrome OS computer and a secondary monitor, but it’s also not a stunning price. What do you think?
Lenovo has been teasing its Chromebooks for quite some time. Chrome fans all over the world have been waiting for the news, especially knowing one of these would feature Lenovo’s iconic “Yoga” design. The company is finally ready to share more details and we must say we are pretty impressed with what they have done.
There are two versions, one is the N20, which is a regular Chromebook. The N20p features a touch screen and will even bend over backwards for you (literally). Other specs include Intel Celeron Haswell processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 11.6-inch 1366x768p displays and 16 GB of internal storage.
Both will be available this summer. The N20 will cost only $279 and should be released this July. The higher-end N20p, on the other hand, should be out in August for $329.
Opinion: I am personally very excited about the N20p. It will be one of the very few touchscreen Chromebooks. Lenovo’s flexible form factor and price range help, too!
