Google could launch ‘Andromeda’ OS on Pixel laptops next year

By : |September 28, 2016 0

Google is working on a new OS called Andromeda which is expected to be an Android-Chrome fusion and this could make an appearance on the Pixel 3 laptop which launches in 2017, reports Android Police.

Google has long been rumoured to be working on combining the core assets of Android and Chrome for a unified OS experience, most notably by bringing Android apps onto select Chromeblooks earlier this month.

But Andromeda would be a true hybrid of the two operating systems, unifying the OS of Google-designed phones, tablets and laptops.

The laptop, called the Pixel 3 and codenamed Bison, would launch with Andromeda in Q3 2017, Android Police says. It’s also likely Andromeda would come on a new Huawei Nexus tablet even sooner, according to 9to5Google.

Hiroshi Lockheimer, a senior vice president at Google focusing on Android and Chrome OS, also teased that Google could be getting ready for a big software reveal at its October 4 press event:


Bison is reportedly an ultra-thin convertible laptop like Lenovo’s Yoga series that will feature a 12.3-inch display. With seventh generation processors, Intel has almost killed m series by keeping only m7 in the offering. So expect the processor to upgrade from Core m to Core i processor.

Google is also aiming to make the device less than 10 mm thick, which should undercut every other tablet offering in the market.
