Chrome OS Beta Channel Sees a Seventh Chrome 68 Build
The Chrome OS Beta Channel has been updated but not in the way that was expected. An almost unheard of seventh build has arrived to the channel in the current cycle and comes a few days after it was expected to be moved up a build. The new build is still based on Chrome 68 and is build 68.0.3440.87 (Platform version: 10718.71.2). Chrome 68 was expected to be in the Chrome OS Stable Channel by this point. That release was suppose to happen on July 31st but clearly hasn’t yet.

As the name somewhat suggests, the two Spin models are 2-in-1 designs where you can fold the screen back onto the device to go into tablet mode. The 13″ Chromebooks sport a 2256 x 1504 IPS display with a 3:2 aspect ratio.
