Dual-screen laptop models first appeared on the market. Now Google seems to be thinking about a new form of Chromebook device.9.95 Google has found code in the latest version of the Chromium software for Chrome OS that refers to a device with a code name Palkia that uses it in addition to two touch screens and a touchpad. It seems that the software is adapted to support laptops with input from a second monitor.

The Palkia code shows that the tablet mode is turned off, it seems to be a regular laptop design with a second screen on the inside rather than another small screen on the fold when you close it. laptop. The second screen, which can show the keyboard or anything else it needs (for example, the way the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 works), may look a bit odd but will be very flexible.

However, the appropriate code is identified as “POC” or “idea project” and not for “OEM”. This means that this is just an experiment – at least for now, it’s too early to expect a device with two Pixelbook screens from Google or the manufacturer in the near future. If a test shows that using two screens for a Chromebook is no better than one, Google can suspend the project before reaching the user.

However, this is still a fascinating idea nonetheless. The second screen can be used as a custom game controller or as an input area for the stylus while the home screen is still comfortable displaying other content. Besides, users can even run two Android applications at the same time on two screens.

We will have to wait and see how Google decides to implement this technology. It is entirely possible for a scenario where any Chromebook will have two standard screens and keyboards – like Asus’ ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 series.
