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.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
