Tech News – Future Chromebooks could make use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor – TechNews#4


Tech News – Future Chromebooks could make use of the Snapdragon 845 processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip will make
its way onto many of 2018 flagship Android phones and always connected PCs
but there’s a chance we will see it in the Chromebook as well
unlike the upcoming flagship smartphones which run Android or the always
connected pcs which are run on Windows Google’s Chromebook line is powered by
the Chrome OS buried within the code of the Chrome OS
XDA developers have discovered clues to the potential future of a Snapdragon
powered chromebook the team at XDA discovered that two commits were
recently added to the Chrome OS code the first adds a new board called chess it
but gives no additional information regarding what Scherzer is or what it
does however the second commit reveals such as a board overlay for a reference
device that will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 in terms of performance
and power consumption the Snapdragon 845 would be a great fit for Chromebooks by
providing the powerful yet energy-efficient chip to run the device
however they’ve been a few obstacles to the use of Snapdragon processors the
Snapdragon 845 would make a great processor for a Chromebook as the line
is meant to balance performance and battery life while maintaining an
affordable price point thanks to the lightweight nature of the Chrome OS
Chromebooks generally offer battery life that can outperform traditional laptops
another unanswered question is just who would be making the Snapdragon powered
Chromebooks and where they would fit into the overall ecosystem with the
exception of pad cell book Chromebooks aim for the sub dollar 500 market so it
would be unusual to see it go beyond that in terms of manufacturer that’s
anyone’s guess however sensing there’s a major
contender here the company already makes some of the best Chromebooks on the
market and it has extensive experience working
with the snapdragon thanks to its Galaxy S smartphones
