In the depths of Summer, leaks of all things #madebyGoogle always seem to crop up left and right. Two years ago we were met with late-summer leaks of the Pixelbook followed by last-year’s leaks and images of the Pixel Slate months before it ever showed up. In the middle of all that, we had the […]
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.
I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy the name Hatch Family. There’s just a nice ring to it. Last year’s unibuild family name ‘Nami’ never really caught on as we were all a bit too focused on ‘Nocturne’ becoming what we now know as the Pixel Slate. Though Gabriel always had a hunch […]
As we get closer and closer to figuring out exactly what ‘Hatch’ is, we learn more and more about the capabilities of this unibuild board. As we saw just in this last week, ‘Hatch’ is responsible for four total baseboards, including ‘Kohaku’, ‘Helios’ and ‘Kindred’ which we just met recently. With these four boards (and […]
First, there was ‘Kukui‘. Then, along came ‘Flapjack‘ which we believe could be the first MediaTek-powered Chrome OS tablets to hit the market. More recently, a third Octa-core MediaTek Chromebook showed up under the code name ‘Krane’ and we’re left here wondering what in the world is going on with Qualcomm. More on that in […]
We’ve talked about ‘Atlas’ for what feels almost like an eternity around here. As a device that began showing up in development alongside the Pixel Slate (‘Nocturne’ back then), we are beyond long-in-the-tooth at this point as we continue waiting and speculating about exactly what ‘Atlas’ is and when we’ll finally see it actually come […]
A few months after the original Google Home made its debut in 2016, a teardown video made its way around the web that revealed pogo pins hiding inside the smart speaker. Speculation quickly arose that Google may have been planning a portable version of the Assistant-enabled speaker but alas, nothing ever came of the development. […]
We love uncovering new Chrome devices that are in the works. No matter what type of Chromebook we find, it’s always exciting to unearth these things and follow its development as features and specs are revealed and we get to share them with you. As of late, there’s been a lot to keep track of […]
Lenovo’s Assistant-powered smart clock was released just this morning and we’ve got one in the house for your unboxing pleasure. We got a glimpse of the tiny smart display at CES Las Vegas back in January and now it’s time to take a closer look. So, without further ado, let’s see what’s in the box.
We’ve been tracking a duo of tablets known only as ‘Flapjack‘ up to this point, but we know a few things about them that make for a duo of compelling entries into the Chrome OS ecosystem. 8-inch and 10-inch tablets with the latest MediaTek 8183 processors, 16:10 FHD screens, and wireless charging make for very […]
First up, some caveats apply with this one. We’ll get into those as we flesh out what is going on here, but there’s a reason we put ‘possible’ in the title and that needs to heavily weigh in as we consider the ramifications of what we are seeing, here. And, what is that, exactly? Well, […]
We weren’t greeted with a new Pixelbook today but Google still brought some impressive and noteworthy products to the I/O keynote. As expected, the Pixel 3A and 3A XL were announced and the budget-friendly smartphone with a premium camera is already popping up in promotions across the web. Another anticipated device debuted center stage in […]
Robby has been busy chasing down every little detail he can find on the new Comet Lake Chromebook codenamed ‘Hatch’. Even though Intel’s 9th Gen processors aren’t expected until mid-year, we’ve now identified one manufacturer that is working on a Comet Lake device and it should be exciting news for a lot of Chrome OS […]
