Both the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have leaked on several instances, extensively revealing their design and specifications. Now it is Pixelbook Go's turn. The folks over at 9to5Google got an exclusive hands on a prototype Pixelbook Go device and they have now showed it off on video today. The top is some sort of soft-matte finish, similar to what you might find on Google's Pixel phones.

However, the Go has less bezel around its 13.3-inch screen than the earlier Pixelbook, making for a smaller footprint.

It's quite the leak, just ahead of Google's Pixel announcement event, which is penned for 15 October.

Now, the Pixelbook Go which is supposed to be unveiled at the same event has come out in the open revealing its design, features and specifications.

We won't know prices until the day, but this is the most "normal" laptop we've seen so far from Google and we'd expect it to be priced to compete with the likes of the Windows Surface Go, its most obvious rival. The Pixelbook is also expected to come with a 2 MP front-facing camera and two front-firing speakers. Alongside this "Not Pink" version, there should be a "Just Black" color too. There will apparently be models that include Intel Core i5 and i7 chips, up to 16GB RAM and 256GB storage, and a 4K "Molecular Display".

While Apple's MacBook runs on macOS which is full-fledged desktop-grade operating system, the Pixelbook Go runs on ChromeOS which is considerably lightweight OS and is designed for running web applications.

For connectivity, the prototype unit sports a USB-C port on each side of the laptop, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack on the left side.
