Google 'Atlas' Chromebook in works; 4K display hinted

A new Chromebook codenamed 'Atlas' with 4K display in works.

    Google is reportedly working on a new Chromebook with a 4K display. Chromebooks are mostly low-cost laptops that are aimed at people who do most of their work within a web browser. If you are someone who's main motive to use a laptop is to check email and binge over Netflix then the Chromebooks work just fine.

    But still, there's no harm in having a top-end Chromebook variant with a 4K display. Other specifications of the device are still under the wraps, but what's certain is that the Chrome OS' source code that supports the Pixelbook, under the moniker "eve," it will also support "Atlas."

    Atlas is the codename of the device that features a display resolution of 3840 x 2160 or more commonly called the 4K resolution. Although this is a new device, it doesn't seem to sport an SD card slot. The full -screen ultra-HD Netflix support could be a huge selling point for the device as it would be a cheaper alternative to its Windows counterparts.

    There's a possibility that Google might talk about the "Atlas" at its annual I/O event in May. But if some other manufacturer is developing it, we might have to wait longer.

    Moreover, Google is also planning to renew its market strategy for its Indian consumer base. The company is reportedly planning to bring a mid-range Pixel smartphone for the Indian consumers. We might also get to see some other budget category devices alongside the mid-range variant of the current flagship.

    Google is expected to make these announcements sometime around July or August, while the Pixel 3 is expected to see the light of day by the end of the year. The reports also suggest that the company will focus more on the distribution of its products.

    Besides, Google also recently released the Android P preview. The update brings a slew of new features. Since a lot of OEMs have launched their devices with an iPhone X-like notch, the new mobile operating system will have support for the new design with the camera and sensor cut-outs. Apart from this, there are few alterations made to the Settings menu, the Quick Settings menu, power button, multi-camera API and others.
