Google is expected to launch a new Pixelbook during its fall event this year, to follow-up on the one they launched in 2017.
The Pixelbook might be a device that has been codenamed Atlas, thanks to an information that comes from a Tweet from Evan Blass. The information was then taken up by Chrome Unboxed, who discovered that the ‘Atlas‘ comes with a 4K display, a Kaby Lake CPU and no SD card support. It has a Google Assistant button, backlit keyboard and 8GB of RAM.
What was strange about it though, was that it seemed to hold a lot of RAM for a Chromebook, since the Atlas was using NT6CL256T32CM-H1 memory. This RAM chip is an 8GB LPDDR3 RAM module. Most Chromebooks had less RAM than that, aside from last year’s Pixelbook.
Obviously the inclusion of a Google Assistant key on the keyboard does mark the ‘Atlas‘ as the next possible Pixelbook, though I admit, that can’t be the only reason to go on to make a 100% positive claim on it.
But you guys know what I say about leaks and rumors, yes? Grains of salt, grains of salt.
We’ll find out the truth pretty soon.
