Google Has Apparently Placed Orders for a Detachable Pixelbook

By Radu Iorga

Google is expanding its format variety for the recently announced Pixelbook and it would appear that this time they’re going with with a detachable model. The device already had a 360 degree foldable touchscreen, but you couldn’t take it apart.

Sources from the supply chain are now mentioning a version made by Quanta Computer that will allow this detachment. Quanta has declined to comment on the orders or clients. Google debuted the Pixelbook last week, with the Pixel 2 phones and it should hit the market soon. The whole idea of a Chromebook Pixel came to life in 2013 and the second generation arrived in 2015.

Google has been working in the meantime with brand vendors like Acer, ASUS, Lenovo and Samsung to make a big push for the Chromebooks in the education segment. They have succeeded, judging by the simple fact that 58% of mobile devices in the K12 education sector ran Chrome OS in 2016. Windows had a 22% share and iOS 14%. Lately though, Chromebooks have been getting pricier and better specced, although not exactly on par with Windows 10 models.

We now learn that Google may be paying Quanta to make a detachable Pixelbook with a 12 inch touchscreen. It’s not yet clear if it will keep the specs or not, but we may expect a midrange or even entry level version of it, as Google itself has teased.

Google Pixelbook Leaks, Seems Like a High End Chromebook; Stylus included

By Radu Iorga

Google has a major event scheduled for October 4th, where they’ll unveil the new Pixel 2 phones. It appears they will also bring a new Pixelbook laptop, that has just leaked via the pics below. We also have details about the product below.

This Chromebook is known as the Pixelbook and it’s going to come in 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB storage flavors. The prices are $1199, $1399 and $1749 respectively. The bulk of the devices’ details isn’t known yet, but we’ve heard that it will fold into a tablet device.

Google will also offer a Pixelbook Pen, a $99 stylus with lots of pressure levels. Tilt support is also here. Google has already launched two Pixel-branded Chromebook laptops in 2013 and 2015, but none in 2016. They will be high priced models, that will rival the Surface Pro and iPad Pro.

The stylus seems rather Apple Pencil-inspired, being a bit more massive than usual and it has its own button. The way the screen hooks to the keyboard is rather bizarre in format, but not atypical for Google. I wonder who the OEM is, but my bet is Huawei.
