To offer a laptop always connected, Google could offer a Chromebook equipped with a smartphone processor.So far, the vast majority of Chromebooks available on the market are equipped with Intel processors. Apart from the relatively poor Rockchip chips, as on some Asus devices, there are almost no other alternatives But it appears that a new solution is emerging with the introduction of a chip Snapdragon 845 on a future model of Chromebook .
According to various information cross-referenced by the About Chromebooks website, it seems that the Chromium OS coders - the free system on which Chrome OS is based - have worked to make a device called Cheza compatible with their system. This laptop, whose origin is unknown, has the particularity of working with the latest processor of Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 845, which is found especially in the latest smartphones.

The code line analysis also uncovered some other clues about the device. According to About Chromebooks, Cheza would be a 2-in-1 device with a detachable keyboard, equipped with at least two USB-C ports. The test device would have a display of 2.560 x 1.440 pixels. And thanks to the Snapdragon processor, it would most likely contain a 4G modem, which would allow the device to be constantly connected.
Based on an ARM architecture, this type of Chromebook could therefore be Google's answer to Microsoft's Always Connected laptop projects, which also use processors traditionally assigned to smartphones. If we still know very little about Cheza, About Chromebooks is betting on a release of the device in the fall, given the progress of the project.
