Google appears to be testing a Chromebook with two screens. Some traces of the device have emerged in recent days in the source code of Chrome OS: the device would be called "Palkia", a name that will be more than familiar to those who know about Pokémon, and in its description two touchscreens and a trackpad are mentioned. The developers say there are two touch controllers: one on the back and one on the base.
Further investigations allow us to deduce the format, which is the traditional clamshell format of laptops: no 360 ° hinge, no tablet mode, no 2-in-1. Of course these are prototypes, whose actual arrival on the market is very difficult to predict. It is true that in recent times the market has become increasingly interested in devices with dual touch displays: in the Windows world, Microsoft is even preparing a special version of its operating system optimized for them, and has already presented a "laptop" that will exploit it ; however, the plan appears to be having some hitches and changes of course.
In the meantime, however, less "extreme" solutions are starting to appear on the market, such as the ASUS ZenBook Duo Pro or the more recent ROG Zephyrus Duo. The lower screen does not occupy all the available surface, leaving enough space for a keyboard and – indeed – a trackpad. It takes a while to guess, of course, but this seems to be the form factor that Google is working on.
