Leaked Photos Suggest Samsung Will Wrap Chromebook 2 in Faux Leather

A possible first look at Samsung's next generation Chromebook

The standard disclaimer about leaked photos and rumors applies here -- always take these things with a monster-sized pinch of salt. That said, Twitter user @evleaks has a knack for getting his mitts on press photos of products prior to their official release, and one of the newest photos he's posted is that of Samsung's next generation Chromebook with a faux leather cover .

He tweeted an earlier shot of the Chromebook on Saturday that showed only the corner of the Chromebook, giving us a close-up view of the faux leather that's stitched around the lid. Accompanying the pic is a blurb that reads, "Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 design marches on..." The Galaxy Note 3 also xomes wrapped in leather.

A day later, he posted a full shot of the laptop with the description, "The Chromebook 2." In addition to the faux leather-covered lid, you can make out that it's a thin laptop with a single USB port on the right side.

According to IBTimes , a few listings for Samsung's Chromebook 2 SKUs appeared on B&H Photo a month ago. Those listings showed 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch models, the smaller of which was said to use Samsung's Exynos 5 chip (probably an octa-core Exynos 5410 processor), while the larger model might sport an Intel processor inside.
