Google’s Pixelbook Go Prototype Is Showcased in New Leak

The Pixelbook Go will feature up to 16GB RAM, an i7 processor, and 4K 13.3" screen. It also comes with an intriguing corrugated design.


9to5 Google has managed to get its hands on an unreleased prototype of 's Pixelbook Go. Though it shares similar naming to Microsoft's Surface Go, it's actually a traditional clamshell laptop.

The color showcased in the leak matches the Google Pixel's ‘not pink', while the bottom of the device has a strange corrugated orange design. The model here is apparently the entry-level one, holding an Intel Core m3, 8GB RAM, and 13.3-inch FHD display.

However, the publication reports that i5 and i7 variants will also be available, with the option to bump up to 16GB RAM and a 4K screen. Either way, that screen's aspect ration will be 16:9, and you'll get a headphone jack, powerful front-firing speakers, a 2MP webcam, and two USB-C ports.

As well as the pink variant, the Pixelbook Go will reportedly be available in the usual ‘Just Black'. The prototype didn't have a fingerprint sensor or Pixelbook Pen support. It will of course run Chrome OS, which means app support will be limited.

Essentially, this is closer to a Surface Laptop than a Surface Go, despite the naming. The only unknown factor here is the starting price and whether Google's fans will be interested in a relatively uninspired Chromebook device.

We'll likely find out the former at Google's NYC event on November 15. Rumors and commons sense suggest a Pixel 4, 4Xl, Nest Mini and Nest WiFi will launch alongside it.
