Next Chromebook shows up on Google Play Console with key specs
Google seems to have not abandoned its idea to launch a Chromebook yet. The device has appeared on Google’s Play Console now. Code-named ‘Zork’, the Chromebook made ana appearance on the web last year as well with benchmarks appearing in April. However, the new listing spotted by 91 Mobiles, reveals some key specifications of the rumoured Chromebook.
As per the listing, Google’s Chromebook sports an AMD silicon that has a dual-core quad-thread Ryzen 3 3250C clocked at 3.5GHz. It’ll also come with 4GB RAM and a Radeon Vega 3 GPU clocked at 1.2GHz. While the console listing shows Android 9 as the UI running on the device, there might be a good possibility of it running ChromeOS. It is worth noting that Android 9 was also mentioned in the benchmarks that appeared in April this year.
Chromebook Zork is also expected to feature 1,920 x 1,080 resolution with a pixel density of 160ppi on a 14-inch canvas.
Although there’s no word on when the product will be out in the open, it may not take much time since it has appeared on Google Play Console now.
Back in August this year, a new Chromebook showed up with a codename Halvor, which might just be the next PixelBook. As per Chrome Unboxed website, the device is supposed to have a support for an Assistant key.
This is said to be the biggest tipping point that Halvor could be the PixelBook because until now there have only been a few Chromebooks and keyboards that include a dedicated Google Assistant key. And all those Chromebooks are made by Google. We’re talking about Google Pixelbook, Google Pixel Slate Keyboard, Google Pixelbook Go, Brydge G-Type for Pixel Slate, Brydge C-Type and Logitech K580 Keyboard Chrome OS Edition.
