Two self-governing and reliable sources have already confirmed that Google is preparing a new laptop to be released in Q3 2017. The project, known internally as ‘Bison’ and by the informal nickname ‘Pixel 3,’ will possibly be the first brand-new device to showcase Google’s combined Android and Chrome OS ‘Andromeda’.
Google Likely To Launch A laptop Running New Andromeda OS
Rumors about Google’s new operating system are gaining strength. Andromeda, a name that is thought to be the end, should be arriving within few days. But it seems that the tech giant Google does not want to present it just as a simple operating system, hence, it also prepares a new laptop. This device should be the first to run the Andromeda OS.
Although not much is known about the Andromeda and not on where it will run, but it would appear on the 4th of October where Google will make the presentation of what will be the future operating system that will unite the Android and Chrome OS.
What is Andromeda?
Andromeda will be a mixture of two operating systems, Android and Chrome OS and the company says that it will bring to Android, the best qualities of Chrome OS. In particular, it will be that long expected when it comes to bringing the mobile operating system to the desktop, something that till now has not been achieved.
To show that Andromeda is a preparation system for these platforms Google shall also have the Pixel 3, the new laptop will mark the final entry of the brand in this field, which has been trying to take revenge with the Chromebooks and Chrome OS.
What are the specifications expected in the new Pixel 3?
According to the Android Police, who actually brought this information from two different sources and both the sources are reliable, reveals that this new notebook will get much of its inspiration to the Surface Pro from Microsoft. As it will have a 12.3-inch screen, a fingerprint reader, two USB ports type C and various sensors.
It will also have the possibility to be converted into a tablet and will supposedly carry a pen or stylus. The processor will be the Intel i5 or i3, it will have 32 or 128GB of storage space and 8 or 16GB of RAM. Its thickness will be reduced, with sources pointing to 10mm.
In addition to the rumors, the all new Andromeda OS may also come with a tablet. This should be the next tablet that the company will advertise and will be manufactured by Huawei.
It is also speculated that the new Nexus tablet will be initially launched with Android, but will have a testing program to be released shortly after, giving the possibility to start testing with Andromeda.
Even if it is already presented on 4th October 2016, then it is not expected to be Pixel 3, whose internal name is Bison, as it will be placed on the market before the summer of 2017. Also, the tablet from Huawei will not see the immediate daylight, being released closer to the end of 2016. Almost guaranteed are the new Pixel smartphones, the new Chromecast 4K and new Wifi router. All the news are about to arrive and will be known very soon.
