Google will unveil the Pixel 4 series smartphones on October 15 in New York. According to a new report, the Mountain View company could also launch a new Chromebook device during the event and will label it as the Pixelbook Go.
9to5Google have obtained a prototype of the Pixelbook Go and has shared almost all there is to know about the upcoming Chrome OS device from Google. As shown in the pictures, the laptop has a matte finish lid at the top with a textured surface at the bottom. The model leaked in the pictures is suspected to be the Not Pink colour while Google is also expected to release the Chromebook in Just Black colour as well.
As for the specs, the Pixelbook Go features a 13.3-inch Full HD display with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. It can also be configured with a Molecular Display of 4K resolution. The device can be powered by Intel Core m3, Core i5 or Core i7 processors with 8GB/16GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage.
Pixelbook Go will feature a Titan C security chip which was present on the Pixel Slate, two USB Type-C ports (one on both sides) and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device will come with two far-field microphones for video calling and triggering Google Assistant. There are two speakers, one on each side of the keyboard.
Speaking about the keyboard, 9to5Google says the PixelBook Go’s keyboard is “just as good or better than the first Pixelbook”. There’s an Assistant key in the bottom-left side, while the home button is positioned where the Capslock key is on other devices and Chromebook keys at the top. There is a traditional “diving board” trackpad at the bottom.
