Chromebooks have come a long way now since its initial launch. There are a bunch of them on the market as of now, and most of them are definitely worth the price tag, and it makes us want to wait for more in future. Now according to some new reports, it is expected that the next Chromebook will be manufactured by Samsung. It is also reported that this Chromebook is codenamed ‘Kevin’.

We also have some rumours stating that this Chromebook Kevin will take the form of a convertible notebook and could apparently be paired with a Wacom active stylus and digitizer. If this is true, it will be the first time that we will be seeing a Chromebook that supports stylus for input. It is being reported that this new Chromebook is being tested by two Samsung employees. The same was confirmed after a series of commits found in the Chromium OS Repositories referring to Kevin. Apparently, these two employees have been posting these commits using ‘@samsung.com’ e-mail addresses.

Looking at the sources evidence, the series of commits were with some components and features including touchpad functions, big.LITTLE SoC voltage settings, board voltage regulation, processor clock and what not. It looks like it will be powered by a Rockchip RK3399 System-on-Chip which accommodates an ARM processor with big.LITTLE architecture. So now we just to wait until it is finally launched. Also, it is not surprising to see a Chromebook being developed by Samsung.

Samsung’s Series 3 Chromebook was the first one to be marketed by Google as well. And technically Samsung was the first company to push the idea of Chromebook to the masses with their offering. So now, this makes it more interesting as to what we will be getting this time from them. However, it is not officially confirmed yet, so until then we suggest you to take this with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned for more details.
