Google’s hardware event is still leaking

Share

Many leaks have already given out several specifications of the upcoming Pixel phones.

The element of the design that immediately stands out is the ribbed back panel, which is both notably distinctive and apparently feels nice in the hand when walking around with the Pixelbook Go.

Like the Pixelbook, the Pixelbook Go will have a premium metal exterior, albeit not quite as sleek and sober.

The report included multiple images of the new device as well as a detailed hands-on video of the prototype.

The lid of the laptop has a more conventional matte finish. The Pixelbook is also expected to come with a 2 MP front-facing camera and two front-firing speakers.

The Pixelbook Go was first whispered about in the rumour mill last month, but now, thanks to 9to5Google, there's irrefutable proof that it's a thing, and will nearly certainly get its official release at Google's hardware event in NY on Tuesday. It will have a 13-inch screen with the options of regular 1080p and sharp 4K resolutions, and it will run on typical laptop specs like Intel Core processors, 8 to 16 GB of RAM, and 64 to 256 GB of storage. In addition to the "Not Pink" color seen above, the Pixelbook Go will be offered in "Just Black" too. We do think there will be other variants such as Core i5 and i7, 16GB of RAM, and 128GB and 256GB storage configurations.

For connectivity, the prototype unit sports a USB-C port on each side of the laptop, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack on the left side.

Google's Pixelbook Go will be configurable with a variety of hardware.

This is obviously the newest Chromebook from the company, and hopefully Google won't bust itself up with ridiculous pricing like the Pixel Book.
