Ahead of Google’s big hard­ware event next week, 9to5Google has got­ten access to what it claims is a pro­to­type of the company’s new Chrome­book, the Pix­el­book Go. 9to5Google pre­vi­ous­ly revealed specs and oth­er details on the device last month.

As expect­ed, the Pix­el­book Go has a 13.3‑inch 16:9 screen in either 1080p or 4K res­o­lu­tion, two USB‑C ports, and options for Intel Core m3, i5, and i7 proces­sors. Oth­er specs are said to include up to 16GB of RAM, 256GB of stor­age, a 2‑megapixel front-fac­ing cam­era, a head­phone jack, and the Titan C secu­ri­ty chip seen in the Pix­el Slate.

The Pix­el­book Go appears to have an unusu­al ribbed tex­ture on the bot­tom, which 9to5Google describes as “some­what sim­i­lar to a wash­board or the roof of a dog’s mouth,” so make of that what you will. The mod­el that the site got its hands on has a coral col­or on the bot­tom with a mat­te fin­ish on the top pan­el that’s rem­i­nis­cent of the “Not Pink” Pix­el 3.


It’s clear that the device is a pro­to­type — the Google logo has been swapped out for a place­hold­er, and anoth­er word­mark reads “Pro­duct­Name” above the key­board. Still, it’s an exten­sive look at what Google is like­ly to announce next week, so it’s worth check­ing out 9to5Google’s full gallery.

Google’s event is hap­pen­ing on Wednes­day in New York City, and we will of course be there to bring you all the news on the Pix­el­book Go, the even-more-leaked Pix­el 4, and no doubt much more.
