The big Google hardware event in October will probably focus a lot on the excessively filtered Pixel 4. But apparently the company also has other products to announce, including its newest Chromebook: a new 13.3-inch and 4K Pixelbook. 9to5Google .
It is said that the Chromebook, officially called Pixelbook Go, is closer to the original Google Chromebook of 2013, with a simple cover design, as opposed to the 2-in-1 transformer design of the Pixelbook or the pixel-style tablet .
The Pixelbook Go has apparently been in development for a while, with Google confirming that it had future Chromebooks in process in April, along with FCC presentations for the product that will arrive in July. The images of the device have also been filtered recently in recent weeks, showing a design with more rounded corners than the generally angular design that Google has chosen with its previous Chromebooks.
The 9to5Google report also sheds light on the specifications of the Pixelbook Go: it will have a 16: 9 and 13.3-inch touch screen with options for an FHD or 4K panel. It's a big change for Google, which has used 3: 2 aspect ratio screens in its previous Chromebooks to better display web pages and documents. The internal hardware will have a wide variety of configurations to choose from, with Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors; 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM; and 64 GB, 128 GB or 256 GB of storage.
As for the ports, the Pixelbook Go will have USB-C ports (one on each side) and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It is said that the laptop itself has a magnesium alloy body, which apparently makes it lighter or lighter than the original Pixelbook.
Nothing is known about the price or release date yet, but we are likely to discover them soon when Google officially announces the Pixelbook Go at its October 15 event. The Verge contacted Google for comments and will update this post if we receive a response.
