Preorder pages spill the beans before official announcement

Earlier this summer, rumors of a new Chromebook nicknamed "Kevin" circulated around the web, and yesterday, ChromeUnboxed uncovered the yet-to-be-announced model through a series of retailer listings: the Samsung Chromebook Pro.

ChromeUnboxed noted that it had received a user tip of a listing for the device on B&H, which was quickly taken down. However, the site turned up a listing for the Chromebook on Adorama, as well as a landing page for the device.

The new Chromebook comes with a variety of impressive features: a 12.3-inch 2400 x 1600 resolution touchscreen that can rotate 360 degrees, has minimal bezels, 32GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, a stylus, an all-metal 12.9mm-thick body, and 10 hours of battery time. The hardware seems to be designed with Android app support in mind.

The device is currently listed for preorder on Adorama with a $499 price tag. There’s no official release date listed, but ChromeUnboxed reported that the since-deleted B&H product page listed October 24th for availability.
