Google’s Andromeda OS powered laptop may not be that far off according to rumors
Chrome, Android, by your powers combined I bring you ANDROMEDA!
Late last year it was rumored that the tech giant Google is planning to merge its Android and Chrome operating systems in hopes to combine both of the said systems best features for a new and improved computing platform. This year, new rumors has sparked that it may not be that far off, as the alleged OS merger, which is said to be called Andromeda OS, will power its first laptop sometime in Q3 2017.
According to the rumors that surfaced on Android Police, the tech giant, is said to be currently working on a Project Bison that will most likely bring out the new Andromeda OS powered device in the form of a 12.3″ workstation laptop.
In addition to the 12.3″ display, the Bison project, which also shares the informal name of Pixel 3, will also be sporting a fingerprint scanner, USB type C ports, pressure sensitive trackpad, and a battery life of 10 hours. It’s less than 10mm thick frame will also be packing some powerful hardware as it will allegedly be powered by either an Intel M3 or Intel Core i5 Processor, up to 128 GB of storage, and up to 16GB of Memory.
With the features in mind, and as well as the lightweight frame dimension, the Pixel 3 can be compared to Apple’s Macbook Air, albeit Google’s alleged Andromeda powered device maybe a little cheaper as the leak points out a starting price of USD 799.
The details are still a little blurry at this point, however we are expecting more news from Google with this Android-Chrome OS merger and perhaps some verification if Project Bison is truly in motion in the near future, with hopefully some details to be revealed at their product launch event this October 4, 2016.
