Google’s next Pixelbook release might be Surface Pro inspired

Upcoming Google Pixelbook devices allegedly shown off in 3 new leaks

Upcoming Google Pixelbook devices allegedly shown off in 3 new leaks

This is Chrome Unboxed's biggest hint that the device featured in this video, which has since been removed from Chromium, is indeed the "Nocturne" 2-in-1 Chromebook that has been leaked already through the open source Chrome OS code platform.

It is a little hard to believe that Google, who makes the majority of their revenue off of web-based ads, "accidentally" launched advertisements picturing a Pixelbook with thinner bezels than any other Chrome device on the market. However, the leaked video appears to show a surface style keyboard connector, something that is not now offered on ay Chromebooks at the moment.

Next is Facebook ad that seemingly shows a Pixelbook more like the one Google released a year ago (codenamed Atlas). Codenamed Nocturne, not much is known about this Chromebook.

Adding more weight to this, Chrome Unboxed also came across new Pixelbook ads that seem to show a thin-bezeled Pixelbook 2 instead of the current version.

Hurricane Florence's rainfall could be 'catastrophic,' scientist says
Trump also tweeted about Florence and the Carolinas after being briefed on the storm on Monday. - Hurricane Florence has slightly weakened to 125 miles per hour Wednesday afternoon.

We're digging deep to see if we can find the original video the image was taken from but I will have to admit, it would be a stretch to think that Google made a "bad render" of the original Pixelbook in a YouTube TV ad. It shows a Pixelbook on a table in someone's living room and seems to be more about how different Google Assistant devices work together. It's unclear if both of these are Pixelbook 2, and we don't know if they'll ever launch. Except, again, there are much smaller bezels this time around.

This July, we learned that Google does intend to release a sequel to the original Pixelbook, likely to be unveiled at next month's Pixel event on October 9.

The keyboard looks very similar to the design we've seen with the Galaxy Tab S4 and detracts away from the usual silver finish we have used to seeing on Pixel Chromebooks. These devices pack beefier Intel-powered specs, metallic designs, and in most cases offer larger display sizes than what we've typically seen ... In an earlier leak, a developer build of Chrome OS revealed an animation of a tablet with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and slimmed down bezels.
