With the Chromebook Pixel off a market, a all-aluminum, touch-and-pen enabled, Android app-packing Samsung “Chromebook” models were immediately looked to as a flagships of a Chromebook universe. Samsung announced a ARM-powered Chromebook Plus and Intel-powered Chromebook Pro during CES in January, and a Plus saw a reasonable recover date a subsequent month. Review units for a faster, Intel-powered Chromebook Pro went out in February, too, though a tangible recover date remained a mystery.
Now it’s May, and roughly 5 months after a announcement, a Chromebook Pro will finally strike a streets. The reason for a check is a Android apps on Chrome OS feature. It has been around as a “beta” for some time, though jacket things adult apparently took most longer than Google expected. According to a news from The Verge, a Android on Chrome OS beta will continue into a summer. And while a Chromebook Pro’s Android enclosure will be using Android 7.0, it still won’t support window resizing during launch.
The Plus done it to marketplace since a ARM-based device improved matches what standard Android hardware looks like. A small handful of Intel-based Android phones is expelled each year, though apparently Chrome OS done things a small some-more complicated. The Intel Chromebook indeed had worse Android performance than a ARM one, notwithstanding make-up a faster processor. With some-more time to cook, hopefully a bugs have been worked out.
