Alleged Google Pixelbook successor hits FCC
The Google device codenamed "Atlas" has just surfaced in an FCC listing. If the rumor turns out to be true, this portable made by Quanta Computer Inc. will soon hit the market as the Pixelbook 2. Unfortunately, the aforementioned listing only confirms the presence of WiFi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 5.0 support.

The Google Pixelbook might not be as cheap as most Chromebooks on the market, but it is one of the most popular devices in this niche. Now, its successor seems to be finally near, although it still has not been confirmed. However, an FCC listing is often as good as an official confirmation.

The device codenamed "Atlas" that has recently been spotted on the website of the Federal Communications Commission carries the ID "HFSG021A" and has been made by Quanta Computer Inc. — the same company that manufactured the first-gen Pixelbook.

Unfortunately, there is not much to talk about in terms of confirmed specs and featured. The aforementioned listing only confirms two connectivity-related attributes of the Google Atlas: WiFi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 5.0. The list of rumored specs and features includes an Intel Core processor, 8 GB of memory or more, and a display with at least 12.3 inches in size.

Since the Google Atlas device has been in the rumor mill for a while, we should get ready to see it finally coming out before the end of the year.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
