Another detail about a potential Samsung Chromebook 2 leaked out this weekend. Based on an image from industry insider @evleaks the refreshed model will have the same faux leather trim and stitching Samsung uses on some of its tablets and phones.

This is the second mention of a Samsung Chromebook 2 as earlier in the week, an online retailer started to take pre-orders for the device. The listing quickly disappeared after news of it broke. A pair of new Chromebooks are expected, one with Samsung’s Exynos chip and one likely to have an Intel Haswell-based Celeron processor.
