Dell and HP prepare to bring premium Chromebooks with Intel's Kaby Lake processor to compete against Google Pixelbook

The substantial rise in demand and interest in the Premium Laptop segment has attracted the eyeballs of some of the major computer manufacturers around the globe including Dell and Hewlett-Packard. But this time around it's not the High-end Windows laptops on which these companies are putting on their resources. According to a recent report published by XDA-Developers, five Premium and high-end Chromebooks are being in the development stage which is set to release by the end of this year.



These upcoming Chromebooks, unlike every Chromebook, will come with high-end hardware configuration which earlier versions didn't have. The move to launch a premium Chromebook has come to give a tough competition to the already successful Google Pixelbook that is a premium Chromebook with a high-end specification like Windows or Mac laptops.




The fourth quarter of 2018 will witness 5 amazing high-end Chromebooks, two of which are being developed by HP and Dell. All five Chromebooks will be powered by Intel's Kaby Lake processor, a minimum of 16GB of RAM, SSD Storage and a 2400 x 1600 res screen panel. 




These five Chromebooks are codenamed as; Akali, Pantheon, Sona, Vayne and Nami. Moreover, it is reported Vayne is being developed by Dell and Sona is the property of HP. All these Chrome OS devices will run on the latest Chrome OS master board with is also codenamed as Nami. Nami is believed to be a "master board" capable of integrating high-end specification in a Chromebook.




These Chromebooks will come with a 360-degree convertible screen panel, Wake on Voice and back-lit keyboard (with Akali being an exception). These high-end Chromebooks will have a support for Linux apps. Whether these devices will have a stylus support, that still remains the mystery.


The time will tell if this idea of making the budget Chromebooks an expensive high-end enterprise Chromebooks turns out to be well or not. Nonetheless, Google has made it's gamble already.
