Internet-services and products giant Google is expected to launch the ‘Google Pixelbook’ at the upcoming Pixel 2 launch event. The ‘Pixelbook’ is likely to be a hybrid device that can function both as a tablet as well as a laptop. This leak is part of a series of leaks providing pricing details about the upcoming Google devices.
‘Pixelbook’ is likely to replace the Chromebook Pixel and function as a premium device running Chrome OS. Droid Life posted details, pointing out that the ‘Pixelbook’ will come with 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB internal storage variants. One thing to note here is that these Chrome OS devices will not come cheap.
According to the report, the 128 GB variant will go on sale for $ 1,199, the 256 GB storage variant will be priced at $ 1,399 and the 512 GB variant is expected to cost a staggering $ 1,749. The expected Stylus, the ‘Pixel Pen’ is not likely to be bundled along with the ‘Pixelbook’. Instead, potential customers will have to shell another $99 to get the stylus. At these prices, the Pixelbook is priced at par with Apple's MacBook Pro 13 lineup.
The report does not point out any specifications of the device. As pointed out by Android Police, we can only confirm the USB Type-C, headphone jack and volume rocker along with a suspected power button, as can be seen in the image available. It looks like we will have to wait for the 4 October launch event for rest of the specifications. Potential buyers can visit the Google Pixelbook and Google Pixelbook Pen product pages after the launch event to check additional details about the devices.
