Chrome OS seen hopping to ARM with Samsung Exynos 5250

Google Chrome OS logoA new discovery within Chromium OS bug tracking has suggested that Chrome OS is not only close to using ARM but may use one of its fastest processors. Thomas Taschauer has spotted numerous references to "Daisy," an unknown device that would use Samsung's Exynos 5250. The 2GHz, ARM Cortex-A15-based chip could both significantly improve battery life and thinness while making a Chrome OS device as fast or faster than current Intel Atom Chromebooks.

Three other devices, "Newton," "Slumpy," and "Stumpy," are also mentioned, although these would be Intel-based hardware. The need for three new devices could represent different form factors, such as tablets and desktops.

Google has given other clues that it may be expanding Chrome OS to ARM in the future, such as references to Tegra processors. To date, however, it hasn't made official announcements and has focused mostly on upgraded Intel chip support, such as low-power Celeron chips.
