September 12, 2018 — Pixelbook 2 appears in YouTube TV ad
One leaked ad showing the Pixelbook 2 not enough? Lucky for you, because a second one’s already popped up.
According to one Redditor, the above image appeared during a commercial for YouTube TV. Just like the device that we saw in the Chromebook ad a couple days ago, this shows a device that looks very similar to the current Pixelbook with much smaller bezels.
Adding more weight to the legitimacy of this leak, the same Redditor also shared a Motion Photo from his Pixel 2 that shows a couple seconds of the ad in action.
September 10, 2018 — Leaked ad shows 2nd-gen Pixelbook with much slimmer bezels
Atlas has been rumored for some time as a marginal upgrade over the 1st-gen Pixelbook, and thanks to an online ad that was recently discovered, we now have our first look at the machine.
The ad is pretty similar to other Chromebook advertisements Google’s been running, but the product shown in it is a device we haven’t seen before. The underside has a two-tone design that looks identical to the original Pixelbook, but as you can see for yourself, the bezels surrounding the screen are much smaller.
Lastly, the ad also reveals that the Pixelbook Pen will continue to work just fine with the new hardware.
September 8, 2018 — Video reportedly shows detachable Pixelbook 2
Like we previously talked about, this year should see Google releasing two Pixelbook 2 models — Atlas and Nocturne. Today, a short video clip apparently gives us our first look at the latter of those two devices.
The video’s pretty short and only shows a small portion of Nocturne, but it reveals some key details.
First of all, the buttons on the keyboard are circular instead of the traditional square design of last year’s Pixelbook. Few laptops have these circular buttons, so it’s interesting to see Google feature them on what’s likely its flagship Chrome OS device of 2018.
The bezels surrounding the display also appear to be much slimmer than the Pixelbook.
How do we know this is Nocturne and not Atlas? While we can’t confirm this with 100% certainty, the black pad that separates the keyboard from the screen sure does look like something you’d find on a Surface Pro — suggesting that the keyboard can detach from the main computer and reinforcing the belief that this is, in fact, Nocturne.
August 10, 2018 — Commit suggests two Pixelbook 2 models are coming this year
The Pixelbook is still one of the best Chromebooks you can buy, and later this year, Google may treat us to not just one, but two new machines to succeed it.
Thanks to some hard work from the folks at Chrome Unboxed, various commits hint at two new Chrome OS devices that Google is working on. Referred to as Atlas and Nocturne, these are believed to both be new entries in the Pixelbook 2 series.
What evidence backs this up? According to the commits that were found:
- Atlas and Nocturne share the same board.
- Features have been enabled for both Atlas and Nocturne in the same commit — something that doesn’t happen that often.
- “Krabbylake” is mentioned in the commit for Atlas and Nocturne (maybe a new version of Intel’s Kabylake processors?).
- Another codename “Whiskers” is referred to as a keyboard accessory for Nocturne, indicating it’ll be a detachable 2-in-1 device.
