Throughout the years, Chrome OS has arrived on a wide assortment of structure factors like laptops, desktops, all-in-ones, tablets, and then some. New proof proposes Google is seeing bringing Chrome OS to another structure factor — dual-touchscreen Chromebooks.
Over the most recent couple of years, an ever increasing number of makers have started exploring different avenues regarding dual-screen PCs and tablets.
ASUS has just discharged such a double screen Windows PC — the ZenBook Duo Pro — and Microsoft has been effectively creating Windows 10X, which was at first expected explicitly for double screen gadgets, including their own Surface Neo tablet.
In view of that, it’s not very astounding to see that Google has been chipping away at a Chrome OS gadget — codenamed “Palkia” — that is inside recorded as having two touchscreens and a trackpad.
We even observe that reality spread out in the portrayal of a code change, where a designer depicts the areas of the chips that control each screen.
One understanding of this portrayal is that “Palkia” has both an internal touchscreen like some other clamshell Chromebook and an external one noticeable when shut.
In any case, in the code, we find that Palkia has “tablet mode” handicapped alongside the typically important equipment sensors. Basically, that implies we’re taking a gander at a clamshell-just gadget, not a convertible or tablet.
Consolidating the entirety of this, our translation is that this dual-touchscreen Chromebook could be fabricated comparably to the ASUS ZenBook Duo Pro, with a second, littler showcase underneath the pivot, yet its absolutely impossible to know without a doubt.
Before you let your creative mind run excessively wild and begin putting something aside for a double screen Chromebook, signs as of now highlight “Palkia” being a model/analyze — not an item we’ll have the option to get one day soon.
In a remark on one code change, a Chromium designer recommends that they “don’t need to pay much resource for a POC project” — “POC” here signifies “proof of concept.” Elsewhere in a similar change, two distinct engineers express that “Palkia is not an OEM device,” which means there’s no organization like ASUS, Acer, Lenovo, or even Made by Google themselves wanting to discharge this specific Chromebook venture.
Rather, it appears as though Google is planning for the future chance of Chromebooks having more than one touchscreen, following the pattern of Windows (and to a degree macOS) workstations offering a second inherent showcase.
When the hardware support is completely practical, it ought to be fascinating to perceive how the Chrome OS group chooses to deal with this sort of second display, in the event that it will be any not quite the same as just interfacing a subsequent screen.
