Many months ago, Google made it quite clear that we wouldn’t be seeing its browser-based OS – Chrome OS on any tablets or phones, but it never said Chrome OS wouldn’t run on devices powered by similar silicon.
In case you would want to buy a device that comes with Google Chrome OS then you have two options – Acer AC700 and Samsung Series 5 Chromebooks.Both of these come with Intel Atom processors.We already know that Samsung is working on an upcoming Chromebook with an Intel Celeron chip as well as a Chromebox desktop.Two days back Sony’s Chrome book VC 111 was seen in FCC website.
Now we might see the future Chrome OS devices with ARM based processors.Thomas Taschauer spotted the the issues tracker at the Chromium OS project which showed that work’s is being done to get Chrome OS compatible with ARM chipset and in particular a Samsung Exynos 5250 chip.
The Exynos 5250 is expected to be one of the first to feature an ARM Cortex-A15 design, and the 32nm chip should be able to run at speeds up to 2 GHz while using less power than ARM Cortex-A9 chips… and far less power than the Intel Atom processors used in current Chrome OS devices.
There’s no way to know if it’s a desktop, laptop, or even a tablet computer at this point.Just we know that it’s a Sammy Exynos 5250 chip.There have been mentions of the codename being as “Daisy”
Other upcoming Chrome OS products appear to include a devices with x86 chips code-named “Slumpy,” “Stumpy,” and “Newton.”
It’s important to note that the Chromium project functions largely via user contributions, so the work might not be directed by Mountain View.I am not sure on this but things may be different though.Check out the source link for more info on what it could be.
