Everything we know so far about Google Pixelbook 2

Everything we know so far about Google Pixelbook 2 ...

Note: The Google Pixelbook 2 has apparently removed all of what we know so far, based on what we''ve heard. In short, it sounds like you shouldn''t expect a new Pixelbook anytime soon. For posterity, the original article follows:

The Pixel Chromebook has been written several times, and some still believe it will come true even if that hope is only vague.

Chrys Tsolaki, Google''s retail partner, was asked if the company was working on a new Pixelbook laptop in the wake of an Android Authority (opening in a new tab) reports. In the future, I cannot understand how long the company will last.

This statement doesn''t seem to be correct, however, because we won''t receive a Pixelbook 2 in 2022 does not mean the premium Chromebook will not arrive. Perhaps that''s naive thinking considering how long we''ve been waiting for anything else, but we''d rather be optimistic.

All of the current information we have about Pixelbook 2 is shown below.

Google Pixelbook 2 release date

The Pixelbook wowed eyes and attempted to redefine what a Chromebook might be on October 30, 2017. Next, the Pixel Slate (which isn''t getting a sequel) came on October 9, 2018.

At a media event, Google announced the Google Pixelbook Go on October 15, 2019. Much like the Pixelbook and the Pixel Slate.

We predicted the Pixelbook 2 to be released in October 2020 based on that pattern. That didn''t happen either in 2020 or in 2021, according to GivenTsolaki. A Pixelbook 2 won''t be released in 2022.

Google Pixelbook 2 specs

One interesting part of Google Pixelbook 2 rumormongering we''ve seen in the past suggests that Google is treading a standstill in computing.

Multiple Geekbench 4 (opens in new tab) benchmarks on that app''s own site show signs of a ''Google zork'' that ran on AMD Ryzen processors. The scores were published on April 1 and June 3 (both in 2020), with the former date''s machine using an AMD Ryzen 7 3600C 15W with Radeon Graphics. Zork, as odd as it is, was rumored as a potential Chromebook codename since an About Chromebooks post

On the same test, the highest multi-core score from those tests was 8,298 (on a Ryzen 7 unit), which only slightly beat the 7,927 that the original Pixelbook (with a 7th Gen Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM) had.

Is the Pixelbook available on AMD-only devices? It''s not possible that more and more laptops can offer both AMD and Intel versions.

Don''t worry about Geekbench''s choice of answer from a smartphone running Android. ChromeOS does not have its own version of Geekbench, so it must run via Android app emulation.

All of the above information is dating back to the present day, with mobile technology becoming more powerful and effective. Pixelbook 2, when it comes out, should have the most advanced technology underneath its proverbial hood. At this point, it would be speculative given how far away we are from the previously discussed specs.

Google Pixelbook 2 price

Google continues to believe in high-priced Chromebooks. How do we know? The original Pixelbook is still starting at $999 on Google.com even in 2022.

The Pixelbook 2 will start at/around a grand. This is why we''re betting that the Pixelbook 2 will be available for free. We''re waiting to see how they will help us drop that kind of change.

Google Pixelbook 2 outlook

We hope for more reasons for the Google Pixelbook 2 than a minor performance boost. The original Pixelbook had a bit of a battery life problem, lasting only 7 hours and 43 minutes on a single charge, falling below more affordable competitors.

As we continue to search for Pixelbook 2 updates and rumors, we''re hoping to discover a new version of the Chromebook or whether it will not be released in 2022, but it''s best if it''s clear until more information is available.
