The Google Pixelbook line will remain stale with no Pixelbook 2 until 2023 at the earliest

Google has confirmed that it has no plans to release a new Pixelbook this year, let alone next year. In fact, a next-generation Pixelbook, tentatively called the Pixelbook 2, will not arrive before 2023.

In September, @AppleLe257 published renders of the Pixelbook 2, seemingly based on a leaked prototype. At the time, the leaker claimed that the Pixelbook 2 would utilise Google's Tensor SoC. @AppleLe257 stated that the Pixelbook 2 has a 13.3-inch display too, with the laptop succeeding the ageing Pixelbook Go.

Unfortunately, this laptop now seems unlikely to come to fruition, at least in the configuration presented by @AppleLe257. Instead, Google will leave the Pixelbook series adrift beyond 2022, presumably after it unveils the Pixel 7 series. Chrys Tsolaki, Google's Retail Partner Manager for Chromebooks, has been quoted by Trusted Reviews are remarking:

Next year [2022] there won’t be anything coming. In the future, I don’t know.

Google is already testing a next-generation in-house SoC, codenamed GS201. While this is believed to launch first in the Pixel 7 series, we doubt that Google would use a last-generation SoC in a laptop that it plans to launch in 2023. Until then, Google will sell the Pixelbook Go, which features Intel Core 8th Gen processors.
