Google Drallion Chrome OS device sporting unannounced Intel Core i7-10810U pops up on Geekbench
This is not the first time we come across the mysterious Drallion device. In early January this year, 9to5Google was reporting on the existence of a Chrome OS Drallion Chromebook with a privacy screen feature that was supposed to be manufactured by Compal. The latest Geekbench entry for Drallion discovered by MySmartPrice unveils that it could actually be marketed directly by Google, plus we also get to see some key specs that include unannounced Intel 10th gen components.
It is still unclear if this is a Chrome OS tablet or a Chromebook. We are inclined to believe that it may be an upcoming Pixelbook model, as the specs mention it is powered by Intel’s 10th gen i7-10810U low-power six-core CPU clocked at 4.90 GHz and coupled with 16 GB of RAM. The Geekbench test identifies this device as running on Android 9, and that is the confusing part. If it runs on Android, it should be a tablet. Still, it comes with an Intel CPU, so the test might have incorrectly identified Chrome OS as Android.
The test scores are nothing spectacular since the unannounced i7-10810U does not feature hyperthreading and it is probably the most affordable six-core ULV Comet Lake processor that will power upcoming ultrabooks and Chromebooks.
