Again in February, a decide to the Chromium Gerrit printed that “secret” 4K Chromebooks had been within the pipeline. The remark hooked up to the dedicate, on the time, gave the impression of only a wink and a nod to the long run risk, however it seems that there could also be a selected title hooked up to Chrome OS’ 4K long term. “Atlas” is the codename for a 4K-equipped board lately came upon in a document on Google‘s Chromium Git.
For the uninitiated, Chromebooks, like Android telephones, have a secret title hooked up to their . The unique 2016 Pixels had been Sailfish and Marlin, Google‘s Pixelbook is Eve, and this upcoming (no matter it finally ends up being) is known as Atlas.
The overall excerpt, which actually simply main points the answer of the framebuffer/display screen and localization choices, is slightly under:
# 3840×2160, boots restoration symbol on USB ports.
display screen: [3840, 2160] sdcard: False
hi_res: [en, es-419, pt-BR, fr, es, it, de, nl, da, nb, sv, ko, ja, id, th, ar, ms, zh-CN, zh-TW, fi, pl]
At this time, all we all know is that Atlas, no matter it’s, can beef up a 4K panel, and it is most probably a Chromebook. Units with out monitors in-built (i.e., Chromeboxes) normally specify in a remark that there’s “no same old panel dimension,” and outline a lot decrease resolutions than 4K.
Different helpful main points, like who’s production it or what specifications it has, are missing. Atlas can even simply be a building board, destined to by no means see the sunshine of day.
No matter Atlas is, regardless that, it looks as if Google‘s trying out Chrome OS on 4K .
