It has been a while since the Chromebook Pixel was released and there’s some evidence to support the theory that perhaps Google could be looking to do another manufacturing run of the first-party Chromebook Pixel notebook. Google has published a job posting which hints that it’s looking to hire talent that will be tasked with the job of working on the next Chromebook Pixel notebook.
The job posting that Google has published is for a “Quality Engineer, Chromebook Pixel.” The person who gets selected for this job will be based in Shanghai, China.
He or she will be responsible for driving the design of experiments, collecting data to enable evaluation, qualification, and verification cost-effectively in manufacturing quality among other things. The person will also be “part of shaping Google’s next game-changer.”
If this is true and a new Chromebook Pixel is in the pipeline, it would be the third version of Google’s notebook. The first arrived back in 2013 and the Chromebook Pixel was later updated last year and reintroduced at $999 and $1,299 price points.
Previous response to the product shows that people are open to the idea of a premium Chromebook and are open to paying for one. Perhaps that’s why Google is considering making one again, but it’s unclear at this point in time when a new Chromebook Pixel will be launched and how much it’s going to cost.
