Google's Pixelbook Go Laptop Detailed in New Leak

Pixelbook Go prototype leaks in full hands-on video

Along with the Pixel 4, Pixelbook Go, Google Nest Home Mini, and Pixelbuds 2, we now have rumors floating around about a Pixel Watch and a 5G version of the newest Google-made phones. The images and video shared in the report are said to be of a prototype of Google Pixelbook Go.

Like the Pixelbook, the Pixelbook Go will have a premium metal exterior, albeit not quite as sleek and sober.

The element of the design that immediately stands out is the ribbed back panel, which is both notably distinctive and apparently feels nice in the hand when walking around with the Pixelbook Go. The front lid, meanwhile, sports a more traditional smooth finish.

The video also illustrates the audio quality of the prototype's two front-facing speakers, which according to 9to5Google, deliver exceptional sound. It's something I would have loved to see on the original Pixelbook to sign into the device more easily rather than using my Google password.

The Pixelbook Go will be officially unveiled on October 15th at Google's media briefing in NY. The model they saw came in "Not Pink", though there will reportedly be a "Just Black" colorway as well. For connectivity, this laptop might come with Two USB-C ports, 3.5mm headphone jack, WiFi and Bluetooth options.

Various specifications will exist, ranging from lower-end Intel Core m3 through to Core i7, with 8GB or 16GB RAM, and 64-256GB storage, depending on what you need and how much you want to spend.

Apart from running Chrome OS, rumours suggest that the Pixelbook Go will have all the makings of a regular laptop.
