Google’s Pixelbook Go laptop leaks completely hours before its launch

Google’s big hardware event is just around the corner and it seems like most of the event has already been evaporated as a result of complete leaks of the devices that the company is going to launch in the event. We already know everything that there is to know about the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL including their design and specifications that they will bring. But the flagship phone isn’t the only new device Google will have to show off next week, as the company is also expected to introduce a new Pixelbook. Surprisingly Pixelbook Go laptop has also now been revealed in leaks just before its official launch.

Just hours before Google’s event next week, 9to5Google has gotten access to what it claims is a prototype of the company’s new Chromebook, the Pixelbook Go. 9to5Google previously revealed specs and other details on the device last month. A series of photos of the Chromebook were published by 9to5Google from its hands-on time with the device. Taking a look at the snapshots of Google Pixelbook Go, the device seems to have an unusual design with a ribbed texture on the bottom described as “somewhat similar to a washboard or the roof of a dog’s mouth,” by 9to5Google. The top panel, on the other hand, has a smooth, matte finish that 9to5Google compares to the finish of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

Taking a look at the specifications, the Pixelbook Go features a 13.3-inch Full HD or 4K touch screen display, Intel Core CPU, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, Titan-C security chip, two USB-C ports, 3.5mm headphone jack, 2 front-firing speakers, and 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Two notable missing features on the new Pixelbook are support for the Pixelbook Pen and a fingerprint sensor, despite being on earlier models.


Exact cost and availability of the device is still unclear to us, it looks like these two are the only things that have not yet been leaked. However, the cost and the availability of the device will be out in the open as soon as next week when the big event will hit off in the city of NewYork.
