A leaker has posted a set of allegedly official renders for a second-gen Pixelbook. This rumored new Chromebook is now portrayed as coming in 5 bright colorways that definitely suggests Google is trying to keep pace with Apple in this regard. On that note, the device is now again touted to come with an in-house chipset.

Google has been rumored to make a new foray into the first-party Chrome OS device market with a new laptop that might launch by the end of 2021. Now, a new leak that might lend this idea further weight has emerged. Its contents hint that the Mountain View giant intends the "Pixelbook 2" to be as modern as possible on its debut.

A very similar candidate Pixelbook Go successor, thought to go by the code-name Atlas, may have been spotted with a silver colorway in an earlier leak. However, it is nowhere to be seen in this new set of renders, which categorically show the alleged Chromebook in frankly Mac Mini-esque blue, green, yellow, pink or orange finishes for a possibly aluminum chassis.

These new images come courtesy of a relatively unknown leaker: Al (or @AppleLe257) on Twitter. Then again, they are presented alongside reasonably plausible spec details, a 13.3-inch display and an in-house Tensor platform included. In addition, the tipster seems to insist that the images might become available in versions with official watermarks soon.

Should they prove accurate, they may indicate that Google truly intends to get serious and catch up to Apple with its hardware in the near future. Therefore, this new Pixelbook might follow its predecessors by ramping up into premium tiers should it truly see a launch soon.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
