Chrome OS external keyboard images show an interestingly thin tablet that lines up nicely with the specs I’m thinking will be in Nocturne, expected to debut on October 9. Here’s what it looks like.
Connecting dots between Chrome OS code changes, recent FCC tests and Google’s October 9 event suggests that Nocturne may be a revision of the HP Chromebook X2 with LTE and possibly a secondary thin keyboard attachment.
Annoyed by hearing yourself echo on a voice or video chat with a Chromebook? That may be a non-issue going forward thanks to AEC support for Atlas and Nocturne.
Good things come in threes and for the third time in three days there’s another leaked image of the Pixelbook refresh with much smaller bezels.
Leaked ads show a Pixelbook that looks like today’s version but with smaller bezels for a larger actual display. Expect newer Intel processors and perhaps a lower starting price.
The 4K Atlas Chromebook will have speedy NVMe support for its local storage, just like the current high-end Pixelbook. Could this be the high-end detachable laptop Google debuts on October 9 at its #MadeByGoogle event?
The #MadeByGoogle hardware event is happening on October 9 in New York City where we should see at least one, if not two, new detachable Chromebooks. Will it be Atlas, Nocturne or both?
The FCC is assigning new IDs to both a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module and an LTE chipset to none other than Google. There are many device possibilities here, but pairing this news with previous evidence of the Pixelbook 2 suggests a Google-branded LTE-capable Chromebook.
The 4K detachable screen of the unannounced Atlas Chromebook might wow your eyes but the 1080p-capabled IMX208 camera sensor should wow folks you video chat with.
For two key reasons, I think the Atlas 4K Chromebook will launch as the Pixelbook 2 (or Pixelbook 2018 if you prefer) tipped to launch before the end of this year.
