What seems to be the Google-branded Pixelbooks replacement, that goes by the name ‘Nocturne’, may be ready for release in the next couple of months, according to a new commit on the Chromium Gerrit. This is the first detachable device made by Google. The code is able to add a factory image builder that, as the name signifies, builds a factory image. If you don’t already know, a factory image is a snapshot of the system’s elemental firmware and used for more extensive testing. If everything does go well, Nocturne could be ready to become a finished product pretty quickly.
Along with Nocturne, other Chromium Gerret changes that have been reported over the last few months have made many think that Nocturne will be one of two Chromebooks. The second Chromebook has gotten the codename ‘Atlas’ and seems to be a standard Chrome OS device. Both Atlas and Nocturne have been shown as being powered by Intel’s Kaby Lake Y processor. The specifications that are deducted from testing seems to show that the CPU is backed up by a minimum of 8GB RAM and a high-resolution display of 2400 x 1600.
