Google Pixelbook Go hands-on ahead of next week's unveiling

Google Pixelbook Go hands-on ahead of next week's unveiling

9to5Google actually gave us a rundown of the purported specifications of the upcoming Pixelbook Go last month, but on Friday, the site returned with even more details, as well as a series of photos of the Chromebook from its hands-on time with the device (which, we remind you, has yet to even be announced).

A report by 9to5 Google has revealed that the upcoming Google Pixelbook Go might come with a ribbed texture back and what looks like a coral colour variant. It shows off the device's soft, circular design with an interesting design for the base of the laptop that's supposed to add more grip.

The Pixelbook Go is now the rumored name, though I don't have any reason to believe it won't be called that. Apart from that, the prototype presented here is equipped with a 16:9 13.3-inch 1080p touchscreen.

What just happened? Google is hosting a Pixel-themed hardware event next Tuesday in New York City although at this rate, there might not be much left to wow attendees. Reportedly, the laptop will come in configurations up to a Core i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB storage, and a 4K "Molecular Display". Alongside this "Not Pink" version, there should be a "Just Black" color too.

The Pixelbook Go will also include a Titan C security chip, two USB-C ports, two front-firing speakers, a 2MP front camera with support for Full HD video capture at 60fps, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Google's previous Pixelbook laptops haven't really been all that popular in the past, and the Pixelbook Go is likely going to follow the same route.

Google's Pixelbook Go will be configurable with a variety of hardware.
