A new high-end Samsung Chromebook with a touch screen and stylus has been leaked on the web. The pre-order pages showed images of a premium laptop before the South Korean conglomerate officially announced the portable computer.  Key features of the Chromebook Pro include a 360-degree rotatable display, average storage space, and possibly Android app support.

ChromeUnboxed first noticed the new images. The Chrome OS site verified summer rumors of a Samsung laptop nicknamed "Kevin."

In fact, the site found the new Chromebook model in multiple retailer listings. ChromeUnboxed received a hot tip about a product listing for the new device on B&H, while it also showed up on a landing page for the Chrome device.

The new Chromebook Pro reportedly includes a 12.3-inch 2400-pixel x 1600-pixel touchscreen, 32GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, and a stylus pen, according to The Verge. The Chrome OS device also includes a svelte "full metal" body of just .5 inches (12.9 mm), and 10 hours of battery life.     

The pen is one of the key features of the Google-powered laptop as it could turn the small computer into a drawing tablet. The product listing suggested the Chrome OS device would be pre-installed with the ArtCanvas app so artists would have a free tool to make digital art.  

Samsung's Chromebook strategy has focused on budget laptops until now. Its Chromebook Series 3 released in 2012 features a slim and light design, ARM processor, and low price.

The new Chromebook Pro was available for pre-order at Adorama for $499 but it seems the page was taken down.

A $499 price tag is high for a Chrome OS device and especially when compared to the processing power of similar computers including the HP Chromebook 13. It would still be a good choice for fans of Android apps.

An official release date has not been listed for the Samsung Chromebook Pro. However, ChromeUnboxed reported a B&H product page claiming the release date was October 24, Monday.

In related news, Apple's October 27 event will launch its new Macs including its MacBook Pro 2016. The company's flagship notebook could reportedly include many new features such as an OLED function key panel to replace the old FN keys, and 5K display developed by LG and Apple, according to iTech Post.  

The new Mac might also include seventh-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs.  It will also reportedly support USB-C and have a battery life up to 10 hours.
