According to rumors, internet giant Google plans to make its own notebook, which presumably will work well with the new and also in-house operating system called “Andromeda.”
According to media reports, Google is currently working on a new notebook, which is probably called “Pixel 3” on the market – the internal name is “Bison.” Instead of Chrome OS or Android, it is to run on the new Google operating system “Andromeda,” which is a kind of combination of the two. However, contrary to the assumption that Google would give release keynotes/new-details for Pixel 3, the internet giant is currently silent. Below you can find all current information about the Andromeda notebook (as of October 2016.)
Convertible or 2-in-1 device
According to the portal Android Police, Google is not marketing the new device as a Chromebook. According to the currently available info, this is a very thin notebook that does not exceed a thickness of 10 millimeters. It probably has a 12.3 inch display that supports a tablet mode. Whether it is a convertible with foldable display or a 2-in-1 device, is not yet known. In addition, an Intel processor from the m3 or m5 series, optionally 8 or 16 gigabytes (GB) of memory as well as 32 to 128 GB of memory in the device are rumored to be available.
Competition for Windows & Co.
Other features include a fingerprint scanner, two USB ports (type C,) a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, stereo speakers, and four microphones. The notebook is supposed to support a stylus; the battery can last ten hours. And according to a new report, a backlight is provided for the keyboard. Android Police is claiming two independent sources, according to which the new device will hit the market in the third quarter of 2017 for a starting price of 799 US dollar. With the “pixel 3” Google wants to make devices that can compete with Windows-based items, such as the surface by Microsoft. When and in what form the notebook will actually appear, remains unknown.
