ChromeBooks And Kaby Lake, Apollo Lake Will Be Out Soon

Do you know that the Intel’s [7th-generation] Core - Kaby Lake - processors have starting showing up in Windows laptops, and soon you may also be able to buy a "Chromebook" with a Kaby Lake chip.
Or if you do rather have a model with a low-power processor, it looks like new models with Intel’s Celeron and Pentium “Apollo Lake” chips are on the way too.
While Google and its partners haven’t announced any Kaby Lake or Apollo Lake Chromebooks yet, a series of leaks suggest that they are under development.

Chrome Unboxed spotted details about a new Chrome board code-named “Eve” which features a "7th-generation" Intel Core processor. The leak comes courtesy of Google’s Chromium source code , where there’s also a mention of “tablet mode,” which would suggest the laptop will have a touchscreen display… and may even be a convertible notebook within 360 degree hinge or a detachable keyboard.
The details about the upcoming Apollo Lake model come courtesy of a Geekbench listing spotted by
Roland Quandt.

It shows a device code-named “Google Reef,” which features a Pentium N4200 quad-core processor and "8GB" of RAM.
I wouldn’t read too much into the fact that this board has (Google) in its name, but I certainly wouldn’t be disappointed if this turns out to be a next°generation Chromebook Pixel. While previous models in that line have had Intel Core "i5" or "i7" chips, they’ve also had high price tags. If "Google" options for a Pentium chip for its next-model, it could be a sign that the device will be a bit more affordable.


The "Geekbench" says the Reef-system is running Android "6.0.1", but that makes sense since a growing number of Chromebooks feature an Android subsystem that allows them to run Android apps,  it just a great way of starting.
