When it comes to Windows-powered laptops, there is a wide array of designs and form factors to choose from, with the latest innovation being dual-screen laptops. However, Chromebooks have seen little to no experimentation. But things are about to change, as recent code submissions suggest Google is working on a dual-screen Chromebook (via 9to5Google).

The device in question is codenamed ‘Palkia’ and the code submission on Chrome Gerrit clearly mentions a second touchscreen on the device. There is also the mention of a tablet mode, however, it is unclear if we are talking about a clamshell form factor with two inner display or a conventional foldable design with a touchscreen display on the outside as well as inside.

However, a developer’s comment suggests that ‘Palkia’ is not an OEM device, which means this is just a prototype device made to test the waters and we may not necessarily see a foldable Chromebook with dual screens in the near future. However, it is a sign that Google is not averse to the idea of such a device and is experimenting with the software side of things for such hardware.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
