Samsung NC20 Leak

Samsung is planning to upsize its netbook line with a second model early next year, a leak suggests. The simply-titled NC20 would move from the 10-inch display of the NC10 to a 12-inch (likely 1280x800) panel and would importantly switch from Intel's common 1.6GHz Atom chip to a 1.3GHz VIA Nano, potentially improving its performance despite the lower clock speed. It should also carry the features of the high-end NC10 model, including its 1GB of memory, 160GB drive and 1.3-megapixel webcam.

The system is expected to weigh relatively little at about 3.3 pounds and to cost the equivalent of $642, putting it at the upper end of netbook pricing and above rivals like Dell's Inspiron Mini 12. Samsung is allegedly planning to launch the system in February, suggesting that the company may use CES for the system's introduction. [via Notebook Italia]
