Google prepares an event in New York for this October 15 , here we will meet the new smartphones of the family, the Pixel 4 and 4XL . In addition to this, Google is expected to present new smart speakers as well as the next generation of its Pixelbook laptop, which would be updated after having met that first version in 2017 that received such good comments at the time.
Now, thanks to information from 9to5Google , we learned that this new laptop would change the focus of the first Pixelbook of 2017, so it would not even be called ‘Pixelbook 2’, but Pixelbook Go and would be a more traditional approach to the idea of ’laptop ‘, all with a vision very similar to what we have today with Chromebooks.
Returning to the basic
According to the information of 9to5Google , this supposed Pixelbook Go would eliminate the 2-in-1 convertible format of the first Pixelbook , since Google would search for “something more traditional”. It is also said that there would be no compatibility with the Pixelbook Pen or with that Pixel Slate keyboard . That is, it would be a laptop with the design we all know.
It is said that this Pixelbook Go would arrive with a 13.3-inch touch screen, which would be in Full HD and 4K resolution options , and would adopt a 16: 9 aspect ratio instead of the 3: 2 of the 2017 Pixelbook. In fact , according to 9to5Google, this device would be the one that leaked at the end of July under the code name “Atlas”.
9to5Google mentions that this Pixelbook Go would have a wide variety of configurations and prices . For example, we can choose between different Intel processors, such as the m3, i5, or i7, with 8 or 16 GB of RAM, and with 64, 128 or 256 GB of internal storage. In addition to the option of Full HD or 4K screen.
This Pixelbook Go would retake some elements of its 2017 brother, such as the double front speaker, although it is now said that they would be much more powerful, two front microphones such as the Pixel Slate , a 2MP camera with the ability to record at 1080p and 60fps. The return of the Titan C security chip is also mentioned, as well as two USB-C ports and 3.5 mm jack.
According to the forecasts of 9to5Google, the Pixelbook Go would have an approximate price of 799 dollars , in addition to that it could arrive with options of several colors, as is currently the case with the range of Pixel smartphones.
Fortunately we will not have to wait long to confirm or deny this information, since there are only a few weeks left for the ‘Made by Google’ event of October 15 , where we will know all the new devices of the company for the end of the year.
