Google seems to be working on a new Chromebook with codename Asurada. A few days ago some details about the upcoming Chromebook was revealed by Chromeunboxed with some expected specifications.

Google ‘Asurada’ Chromebook details
According to the listing, the upcoming Google Chromebook will be powered by an octa-core MediaTek 8192 SoC, clubbed with Mali-G57 GPU. The listing also revealed that the device will be backed by a 4GB RAM. Besides, the Geekbench listing suggests that the upcoming Google Chromebook will run on Android 9, but we can expect the latest Android operating system as Google never launches its latest product with outdated Android versions.
The Google Chromebook with codenamed Asurada manages to score 480 points in single-core and 1,728 in multi-core Geekbench benchmark testing. Previously, it was expected that the Chromebook with codename Asurada will launch with MediaTek 8192. The chipset is said to be an upgrade over the MediaTek 8183 processor (aka Helio P60T).
Interestingly, this is not the first Chromebook powered by a MediaTek chipset, it was Lenovo Duet tablet that was introduced with MediaTek 8183 aka Helio P60 SoC in January at CES 2020. According to a report, the MediaTek 8192 is added to the repository “just two weeks ago but there has already been a lot of work done with the platform.” The report also claimed that the “developers have already cloned a baseboard from the previous MT8183 devices and created an overlay for an actual Chromebook.”
