In 2013, Google launched its first Chromebook with the Pixel brand. It seemed to showcase the potential of the Chrome OS on the high-end hardware. It was welcomed and loved by many gadget lovers. Later after 2 years, in 2015, Google launched Pixel 2 with USB Type-C ports and some high-end hardware. Google launched a tablet called Pixel C later. The Pixel brand is now being used for the Google’s new line of smartphones. So it seemed like Google is planning to bring all their products with the Pixel brand.
The 2015 version of the Chromebook Pixel was discontinued in the last August. So people were thinking that the Google will come up with the next version of the Chromebook Pixel. But in a small meeting with journalists at the MWC 2017, Google’s Senior Vice President for the hardware Rick Osterloh said – “but we have no plans for Google-branded laptops”. So the people thought that the Pixel Chromebook’s or Google-branded laptops are dead now.
But today, Rick Osterloh said on Twitter that there are just “no plans to share at this time.” So, it’s not dead. Check his tweet below.
Hey all, Google’s own Chromebooks aren’t “dead” as has been reported. They will live on, we just have *no plans to share at this time* 😉
