I found some build instructions at chromium.org and some public repo (not google's) at github, but so far no apk.

I'm asking because I couldn't find a video or demo of chromium running on android either which makes me wonder if it works at all or just limited to a webview basic mode.

I saw it once and tried researching it but could not find it again. Not 1 apk but 2. You need them both. I do not remember their names.

Sounds like some modded whatsapp apks I seen, but couldn't find anything either

Wonder how difficult would it be to couple the chromium-based webview with a browser UI

Yes, but it gets released everyday.
The trick with the official build of Chromium for Android is that it's constantly being released by the Chromium team.
These builds don't auto-update, so you need to install new builds occasionally( I install a new build every day, personally).
I put together an app getChromium that's available on Google Play(can't link anything in here yet) that securely pulls the latest build from the official repository and installs it.
Code's on github.
