Google Pixelbook: Release date, price and what we know so far

For example, the specs and features of the Google Home Mini have now been revealed, which indicates that it too is on the menu. A recent report said that Google will launch the Pixel 2 on October 19th and the Pixel 2 XL on November 15th. Now the leakster has posted another set of images which include both Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL.

At the moment, most reports indicate that Google's upcoming devices will have much more differences between each other than the original Pixel and Pixel XL did. It's also on Google Home, Google Watches and eligible TVs. The Pixel 2 XL leak came out as a shocker, showing a massive 6-inch display, which is about half an inch bigger than the previous Pixel XL.

Of these products, the Google Home Mini has already been leaked by Walmart, which "accidentally" listed it on the website. Amazon had recently revamped its Echo family of devices.

According to leaks so far, both Pixel devices are expected to feature a single-lens primary camera. If in fact the phone ditches the headphone jack it's likely due to waterproofing, which the original phones were lacking.

Google is rumored to bring the bezel-less design to its line-up this year.

Earlier this year, Google announced the next high-end Chromebook to come with a physical button or keyboard shortcut to trigger Google Assistant. That was all we knew when we had originally heard of the Pixelbook though-until today. However, there is no clarity on whether the accessory will be bundled with the laptop, or be sold separately.

These Pixelbooks will function as laptops, but can also be flipped around and used like a tablet.

The search engine giant is also expected to refresh the Daydream View VR headset, and bump up its price tag from $79 to $99. The Pixel 2 XL is also expected to be IP67 certified, and come with HTC U11′s squeeze feature. The 128 GB storage variant will have a higher price while the 64GB variant will be priced lower. It the last few days their images along with key specifications and features have been leaked.

Google is full of surprises, so one can never be sure what tricks it has up its sleeves. It's all but confirmed, but on Wednesday we may also get the official unveiling of the PixelBook, Google's next internally designed Chromebook.

The event will be live-streamed on YouTube and will kick off at 5pm United Kingdom time, or 9am PT. It appears that Google is gearing up to take against the Amazon and release at least one new Home model during the October 4 event.
