Google might not launch a new Pixel notebook, but this patent that recently surfaced online shows an interesting device that comes with a section that can be covered and opened.

Although nothing has been confirmed yet, it looks like a new Pixel C notebook/convertible tablet is on its way. For now, it is only in the patent stage, but it comes with a few interesting design traits, and it would be nice to see it hit the market.

According to an exclusive report by SlashGear, "A new kind of notebook computer was granted a patent for Google this week by the USPTO. In this patent, a notebook with a new method for multiple use-case scenarios was presented." This portable comes with a keyboard that can be covered while using it as a tablet. Depending on the variant, it might feature a fingerprint reader, a wireless transceiver, and/or NFC connectivity.

The original Pixel C is a tablet that also had a keyboard accessory with its own hinge, but when used as a notebook it would look completely different than it is pictured in the patent mentioned earlier. It remains to see if Google would try to conquer the market with a new Pixel convertible/notebook/tablet or the design described by the patent remains in this early stage.
