The Google hardware leaks are just getting silly now: What looks like the Pixelbook 2 with smaller bezels appeared in a blog post… on Google’s own blog.
A hidden Google Store link shows that new device orders may begin on October 9, the day Google is expected to show off a refreshed Pixelbook, the Chrome OS tablet code-named “Nocturne” and new Pixel phones. Get your credit cards ready!
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 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.
