ASUS is known for making great hardware and this is one of the reasons why this Taiwanese company is so popular among hardware enthusiasts. Sometimes ASUS even makes exceptional devices – such as the Chromebook Flip – a convertible notebook, which was launched last year. The device was one of the first notebooks to come with a 10-inch touchscreen display and one of the first Chrome OS devices to have a tablet mode. In addition to this, this year the Chromebook Flip became the first Chrome OS device to gain support for Android apps. Now ASUS is reported to have started working on a new Chromebook that will be more powerful than the Chromebook Flip. Are you ready for one more nice surprise?
There’s no official information on the new Chromebook device so we will have to rely on hints. They make us think that the new Chromebook will have a touchscreen display, tablet functionality and a 6th generation Intel Core processor on the Skylake architecture. This will make the future Chromebook more powerful and likely more expensive than the Chromebook Flip but we cannot guess what the price of the device will be. As a comparison the Chromebook Flip had a display that worked at 1280 x 800 pixels, a Rockchip RK3288 processor and support for up to 4 GB of RAM and up to 16 GB of storage.
It is hard to guess when the new ASUS Chromebook will be ready so we have no other choice but to wait and hope for another great notebook from the Taiwanese computer maker.
