It has been reported that the 12th generation Intel hardware currently in development may be in development not only for Chromebooks but also for Chromebase and Chromebox.
This time the reportchrome unoxidewhich indicates that two devices called “Gladios” and “Lisbon” are Chromebox or Chromebases, presumably manufactured by HP.
First of all, it turns out that the developers involved in two devices, Gladios and Lisbon, have also been involved in developing multiple HP devices in the past, most likely an HP device.
There is limited information about specifications etc., butshouting”, is expected to adopt the 12th generation Intel chipset.
Since both computers are HP and also powered by Intel 12th Gen, there is a question as to why two would be developed if it was a Chromebox. Chromebooks can be divided into clamshells and convertibles, but Chromeboxes don’t need to be split in two, so I think Chrome Unboxed would be Chromebase and Chromebox.
So far, I don’t think Chromebox was developed on two separate boards, so it’s definitely possible to have two boards, Chromebox and the base. However, at the moment there is no confirmation that either of them will be Chromebase.
Also, two devices, Gladios and Lisbon, have added support for Qi wireless charging. We don’t yet know what this will do, but a Qi wireless charger can, for example, be included on the Chromebox, or it can be used to charge a USI pen. But if it’s a Chromebox, I think it’s more natural to think of it as a charger than just a pen.
With this limited information at the moment, we don’t yet know what these devices will look like. It is also in the early stages of development and may not be released next year.
Speaking of HP’s Chromebase, the ‘HP Chromebase All-in-One Desktop’ has just finished in Japan, and given this pace, it seems best to think of it as a device that will be announced in the second half of 2023 or 2024.
