Among the products that Google is expected to launch at its fall event this year is a new Pixelbook. The company launched one last year as well so it’s safe to assume that there’s going to be a successor to that device this year. A new report mentions that the new Google Pixelbook specs may include a 4K display.
The folks at XDA Developers believe that the next Pixelbook is a device codenamed Atlas and that it features an Intel Kaby Lake processor with 8GB of RAM. It may not have an SD card slot but is said to feature a 4K display and a backlit keyboard with a physical button for the Google Assistant.
It’s the 4K display and 8GB of RAM that makes this device stand out from the other Chrome OS-powered devices that are being worked on right now. These specs are out of pace for the conventional Chromebooks that tend to be a budget affair with the specs to match. Moreover, the lack of an SD card slot is a big indication as well since last year’s Pixelbook didn’t have one as well.
Google hasn’t said anything about a new Pixelbook at this point in time. There haven’t been any major leaks concerning this device as yet, though it’s possible that some might emerge in the weeks leading up to the launch.
