We know the arrival of the hotly-anticipated ASUS C434 is just around the corner. What, with the FCC filing already out of the way and the listings already on education/enterprise resellsers like Promevo, the clock is ticking against the full-tilt release of the successor to the very popular ASUS C302.
One of the primary focuses here at Chrome Unboxed is future hardware. After all, our early days were all about new devices! What is coming feels just as important as what is here now, so we will continue looking for the latest and greatest developments in the Chrome OS ecosystem.
There had been a bit of a break in news about ‘Atlas’ (which we firmly believe to be the Pixelbook2) since the end of 2018, but things are popping up left and right lately and we’re even inclined to think there’s a good chance that the Pixelbook 2 could make its debut at a smaller […]
Back in August of 2018, a few stories went around stating that Google was working on a facial recognition feature for Chromebooks and, to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t find any real evidence at the time pointing to anything beyond facial recognition for cameras. After all, modern mobile cameras use facial recognition all the time, […]
The upcoming Chromebook, known only as ‘Sarien’ at this point, is a device likely coming from Dell with top-tier specs, a detachable form-factor, and Wacom stylus support. Additionally, the fact that two USB-C docks are being tested alongside both ‘Sarien’ and ‘Arcada’ not only tipped us off to Dell being behind these devices, it also […]
We haven’t spoken much about ‘Cheza’ and Qualcomm-powered Chromebooks in quite a while around here. To be honest, I fully expected to see something from this entire effort at CES or at MWC last week, but we’re still waiting to actually see something emerge from Qualcomm or any other manufacturer.
ASUS is aiming for a March release of their latest flagship Chromebook and it looks as though they should be right on time if reseller listings are accurate. Just last week, an Amazon UK listing popped up for the thin-bezel convertible and even though you can go ahead and place your order, it is technically […]
Ever since we laid eyes on the upcoming ASUS C434 in January at CES, we’ve all been eagerly awaiting the day when it shows up at the office for review. After such a long wait following the excellent C302, the ASUS C434 looks to be every part the proper successor to its beloved predecessor.
Asus predicted a March release date for their newest premium Chromebook and it appears they should be right on schedule if not early to the launch. Our good buddy Kevin Tofel of About Chromebooks has uncovered the FCC filing for the ASUS Chromebook C434 which is a good indicator that it will be available, at […]
Speculation is fun. Scouring the Chromium repositories and looking for juicy morsels is exciting to us and often times it takes some serious mental acrobatics to create educated hypothesis on upcoming devices that are more than simple conjecture. Despite our best attempts, occasionally we miss the mark but it isn’t for lack of trying. With […]
We’ve talked quite a bit about the slightly-mysterious ‘Sarien’ in the past week. From its emergence as a new flagship Chrome OS device to the fact that it looks to be made by Dell, ‘Sarien’ is starting to add up to a very intriguing option in the high-end Chromebook space.
We just uncovered a new flagship Chromebook in ‘Sarien’ yesterday and this device already has some head-scratching development happening over at the Chromium Repositories. As we continue sorting through it, we’ll obviously continue sharing our findings, but one thing that is pretty straightforward is a line of commits that point directly to not only a […]
As we start the year here in 2019, the Chromebook landscape has evolved, giving us new form factors in devices like the Pixel Slate and HP Chromebook X2 while at the same time delivering up solid, high-quality Chromebooks left and right with devices like the HP x360, Dell Inspiron Chromebook, and Lenovo Yoga C630. As […]
