In addition to announcing the Pixel 4 smartphones, Google’s event also saw the company announce a new Pixelbook laptop in the form of the Pixelbook Go, whose photos were actually leaked a few days ahead of the event. If the Pixelbook was a laptop you’ve had your eye on but felt it was a bit out of your price range, then Google might have your back with this model.
We have been hearing rumors that Google has a new Pixelbook in the works. Now thanks to a report from Chrome Unboxed, it appears that a video has leaked online that seems to show the Pixelbook 2 in action, and based on what we can see in the video, it seems to suggest that the device could sport a detachable keyboard.
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.

Even with the Core i5 edition, the Pixelbook delivers an exemplary, flawless web experience, with a user interface that can be smoother than more powerful PCs.
Google is reportedly going to launch a variety of devices this fall and if a new report is to be believed, we should add a new Pixelbook to the list as well. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, new Pixel Buds, and a new Pixel smartwatch are already expected to be launched in October this year and it’s believed that there’s going to be a new Pixelbook as well.
Google’s Pixelbook is a high-end Chromebook and it doesn’t really have a rival as most manufacturers tend to make affordable laptops powered by Google’s cloud-based operating system. However, if a new report is to be believed, there are at least five high-end Chromebooks in the pipeline with at least two of them being developed by Dell and HP.
Announced in October last year, Google’s Pixelbook is the company’s latest attempt at making its own Chromebook. It is a pretty sleek device and even comes with a Pixelbook Pen, which is basically a stylus that lets users interact with the device. For those who own both and are looking for a way to protect it, you’ll be interested to learn that the Pixelbook sleeve has been officially released.
You can’t use Google Assistant on a Chromebook unless you spend a lot of money on Google’s Pixelbook. The company launched this premium Chromebook last year and aside from the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, it was one of the few devices with native Google Assistant integration. It appears that the company is now preparing Assistant for Chromebooks other than the Pixelbook.
As far as operating systems are concerned, we know that Google has its Chrome OS and Android, the former designed for laptops while the latter is the most popular smartphone operating system in the world. However in recent times we have heard the rumors that Google could have a new OS in the works codenamed Fuchsia.
Google recently launched a new Chrome OS laptop in the form of the Pixelbook. In a way this laptop seems to be positioned to compete against Apple’s MacBooks as well as Microsoft’s Surface tablets, with one of the features being an accompanying stylus called the Pixelbook Pen.
It has been a few years since Google launched their Chromebook Pixel laptops and according to a rumor from last year, the Chromebook Pixel 2 was reportedly cancelled. It turns out the rumors were partially right because while the Chromebook Pixel 2 might be dead, Google isn’t quite done with its own Chromebook laptops yet.
