To any Googlers out there:

Firstly, does Samus still lock users out of their devices if they're in Developer mode and the battery runs flat?

Secondly, I can't see anything in any of the announcements or reviews I've read about LTE, but I saw that it was being tested. Was this dropped or is it in the LS version?

Cc: +Bill Richardson 

Otherwise the machine looks absolutely great and I'm looking forward to picking up an LS at some point in the future!

FYI, I just found out that the Rockchip systems didn't get this fix. Sigh.

Samus to use high end LPDDR3 RAM

Just discovered this morning that Samus will include (for the first time in a Chromebook?) The very low power LPDRR3, the same favoured by Apple in their Macbook Airs and Microsoft in the Surface Pro 3. This joins (the also expensive) Panel Self Refresh Samus is set to premier on Chromebook hardware, in an effort to increase battery life.

+Chip Colandreo Yep, this certainly won't be on sale this year, but should still make it before the middle of 2015, it seems.

Hello, what have we here!

Samus is going into DVT soon (Design Validation Test) Which by some accounts means it's in the manufacturing stage and one step closer to release! This is looking less and less like a development board and more and more like Google might has something new for us...

+Ketan G Probably. I've never followed a Chromebook this closely before, but if I had to guess (and I've guessed wrong before) It probably won't be released until between this November and March next year.

The plot thickens!
If you direct your browsers over to: http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/developer-information-for-chrome-os-devices/chromebook-pixel-2015

Which is the general information page for Samus (Pixel 2015) there is this interesting part that reads:

'LTE on some models'

but neither the two models out are supporting it. This is very strange...

Fascinating. Odd too that they used "the Chrome Notebook".

[New Apps] Came across another couple of Samus screenshots, but the more interesting thing here is the icons being shown off. It appears that Google are dogfooding the Android camera and calculator apps for Chrome OS. There's also a picture of the new app launcher icon (magnifying glass): http://www.omgchrome.com/chrome-os-app-launcher-icon-search-glass/

This may have all been covered before, but I thought I'd stick it here just in case.

Also interesting is the "Google Now" icon placeholder.  Hopefully they're moving the Google Now cards out of the notification center and into a place that's more "on demand".

If they do a multi-mode machine I hope it's a Yoga 11e configuration as opposed to the half-baked N20P. The Yoga is an amazingly useful machine, albeit a bit blocky since it's a machine for the K-12 market. A sleek and light version of the Yoga with Pixel screen specs would be an extraordinary top-of-the-line device.

[Samus] I/O? or sooner...

As a refresher:
0. (Duct-tape) Idea phase
1. Engineering Prototype
2. (EVT) Engineering Verification Test
3. (DVT) Design Verification Test
4. (PVT) Process Verification Test
5. (MP) Mass Production.

As a disclaimer, Design Spring notes that PVT lasts anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, after such a lengthy process in development, I think everyone is hoping for the former. Next you hear from me will probably once it hits MP, but by then the big tech blogs may have picked up their own leaks... Bring on Pixel 2.0!

+Nikolay Suknyarov Woah, they've hidden everything with the word Samus in it. That... was unexpected.

*well, from open issues anyway

IT'S COMING!

Just visited the Developer Information for Chrome OS Devices page and now attached at the bottom is a list of USB type C adapters! 

We're close, very close...

Pixel owners! There is a lot of code at the moment being put into making the lightbar more modular and useful. 

1) It appears they're finally making it more accessible to user commands. Currently, the only way of achieving this is to be in Developer Mode and using something like +François Beaufort's Lightbar App in the Chrome store.

2) Another interesting feature which may-or-may not come to our Pixels is 'tap for battery' which would allow tapping (somewhere) on the Chromebook, presumably when it's in hibernation, and the lightbar would briefly lightup to show the current battery level. Very cool, but I can only see evidence that they're testing this on the unreleased Samus at the moment, so it might be dependent on specific hardware beyond what our Pixels have.

Yeah, I was about to say that, Jacob. With Samus around, Chromebook Pixel might not be such a unique chromebook anymore -- it may be even a worthy sucessor to Pixel.
