It looks like a 4K Chromebook may be in the works.
Reddit user ‘-nbsp-‘ discovered a few lines from the Chromium boards.yaml file. In the lines of code is the codename ‘Atlas’ and characters related to a 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution — which equals 4K.
That’s currently all the information out there regarding the possibility of a 4K Chromebook being on the way. Chromebooks, like Windows, are made by a number of third-party manufacturers, including Asus, Acer and Samsung. While most Chromebooks are low-end, more affordable devices, Google’s own Pixelbook is one of the few high-end Chromebooks on the market.
It’s possible that Atlas is the codename for an upcoming Pixelbook.
