There are a growing number of Chrome OS devices on the market, ranging from the $1300 Google Chromebook Pixel to the $199 Acer C7 Chromebook, with a Samsung Chromebox desktop or two thrown in for good measure.

Now Chrome evangelist François Beaufort reports that members of the Chrome OS team appear to be testing at least two new devices.

The first is a board code-named Sonic, and the second is one code-named Peach Pit.

At this point, that’s about all the public information that’s available about these devices. At least the Peach Pit model appears to have an ARM-based processor, suggesting it could be an updated system board for the Samsung Chromebook… or it could be a different Chrome OS device powered by an ARM processor.

Chrome OS can run on devices with x86 or ARM-based chips, and we’ve seen Chromebooks with everything from a Samsung Exynos 5250 ARM Cortex-A15 dual-core processor to Intel Core i5 chips.

There’s also a Chrome OS device code-named Puppy under development. That model’s expected to have an NVIDIA Tegra 4 ARM Cortex-A15 quad-core processor.

  1. The more the merrier…but I just hope that eventually *all* Chromebook models (old and new) will be made available in Canada.

  2. Sounds pretty good.

    I believe a $250, Exynos-Octa based Chromebook would be a killer especially if it comes with similar Linux support as the Pixel and the XE303.

    A similarly priced Tegra4 variant would also be a best-seller especially now that open-source Tegra drivers are being built.

    In-fact, Nvidia supports desktop Linux better than Samsung, so the Tegra4 Chromebook would be a pretty appealing machine.
