Samsung may fix the Chromebook Pro’s biggest problem with a backlit keyboard
Samsung’s machine has a fantastic screen, high-end design, and it runs fast. For the most part, the Chromebook Pro has what you’d expect from premium Chromebook hardware.
But there’s one very obvious feature missing from the device: a backlit keyboard. It’s a strange error, especially considering the Pro’s relatively high asking price. Although, it’s one that may be remedied in future so not to repeat the mistake of the hardware.
Chrome Unboxed has discovered details that point at the addition, though it’s unclear what form it might take. It may be added as part of a second run of the current hardware, or a feature included in a rumored beefed-up version of the Chromebook Pro.
While it’s not official yet, the change would make the Pro a much more appealing option in the increasingly crowded Chromebook landscape.
