Lenovo Teases ChromeOS Tablet Successor with Powerful Upgrades
Chromium Code Hints at 'Ciri' Device with Impressive Specs
The world of ChromeOS tablets and 2-in-1 devices may be getting a new contender, with all signs pointing to a successor to the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5. While not an official announcement, intriguing clues have emerged from Chromium, the foundation of ChromeOS.
This potential ChromeOS tablet, codenamed ‘Ciri,’ is stirring up excitement due to hints found in Chromium’s code. What’s catching the attention of tech enthusiasts is the fact that ‘Ciri’ shares the same battery specifications as the Duet 5. While not conclusive, it’s a compelling indicator of a successor in the making.
What adds to the anticipation is that ‘Ciri’ is expected to be powered by the MediaTek MT8188 chipset, a component that’s yet to be officially unveiled. This chipset is projected to offer substantial performance gains compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 found in the Duet 5.
