It's unclear whether the 2-in-1 device will dual-boot the two operating systems independently or run Android apps natively in ChromeOS, something Google announced it was working on during Google I/O 2014. It's likely that it will switch automatically between the two in a similar manner to Windows 10's Continuum feature.
Quanta Computer is designing the Chromebook, according to sources from Google's supply chain, which point to the end of March for its completion date.
Other vendors are said to be joining the 2-in-1 Chromebook party later in the year, though names are yet to be confirmed - although you can safetly bet that Samsung won't be one of them following its exit from the laptop market.
- Oh, go on then - show me the best Chromebooks
