Google may launch the second-generation Pixelbook with updated design and smaller bezels alongside its much-anticipated flagship Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL smartphones, and Pixel-branded Watch. The alleged new Pixelbook is tipped to ship before the end of 2018 as well.

According to Evan Blass, Google will add second-generation Pixelbook with smaller bezels to its fall hardware lineup, which is expected to include Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL smartphones and Pixel-branded watch. While there are no other details available, but one could expect Pixelbook to run Chrome OS on the latest Intel or Qualcomm ARM chipset along with support for Google Assistant of course.

Replying to his own tweet about the Pixel smartphones launch from May, Blass noted, “Add to this fall hardware lineup a second-generation Pixelbook, with smaller bezels, scheduled to ship before the end of the year.” So, coming October we are expecting the Pixel phones to arrive and at the same time we should also expect the Pixelbook and may be Pixel-branded watch.

Last month we got to see renders of the two smartphones, but today both appeared on Android Open Source Project (AOSP) again, further confirming the launch of these two devices. The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL have been touted to have codenames “blueline” and “crosshatch” respectively. Earlier reports had also suggested there to be a third device, which is codenamed “albacore”.
