Google Pixelbook 2 Release Date And Specification Rumours

Google Pixelbook 2 Release Date And Specification Rumours
The last Chrome OS device to emerge from Google was the Pixelbook, a top-notch Chromebook which works both as a laptop and tablet.

If there's one thing - other than the price - preventing more people buying a Pixelbook one it's the operating system it runs: Chrome OS. This is fine if you want to do web-based stuff, but it's limiting when you need to run Windows-specific software for more demanding tasks.

However, that could be about to change as XDA Developers has been tracking code changes and in particular a new branch of the Pixelbook codenamed Eve-Campfire. 

In a nutshell, there's enough evidence to support the theory that Google has been using Microsoft's certification tools so that the Pixelbook can run Windows 10 legitimately. The Pixelbook, being the most recent device, is used as the test bed for future products, so while it's unclear whether the original Pixelbook would get an update that allows users to install Windows 10 or whether only the next-generation Pixelbook will gain the capability remains to be seen.

What are the Pixelbook 2's rumoured specs?
A user on Reddit has discovered some juicy details in a file related to Chrome OS which essentially reveals a device codenamed 'atlas' with a display resolution of 3840x2160 pixels.

And as you well know, that is 4K.

As of yet, no Chromebook has had a 4K screen: the Pixelbook's 12.3in display has a resolution of 2400x1600.

Previously there have been rumours of a 'secret 4K Chromebook' which many took as a joke. However, this discovery adds weight to the theory that Google will indeed launch a 4K Chrome OS device soon.

Whether this is a tablet or a 2-in-1 hybrid like the Pixelbook is yet to be confirmed, but other leaks and rumours suggest the new device will have a Kaby Lake chip, a keyboard and a trackpad.

When is the Pixelbook 2 release date?
Right now, the device itself is based on only a couple of discoveries, and Google made no mention of it at its annual developer conference - I/O - which was  in May.  

When more rumours surface, we'll be sure to add them here.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
