Google Pixelbook likely to be launched soon

Earlier this year, Google shut down its tablets division to focus solely on building laptops

Google Pixelbook 2 has been in news for quite sometime now. Rumours of the tech giant launching the successor to its Google Pixelbook first surfaced last year prior to the launch of the Google Pixel 3 last year, however, they soon faded away when the device missed launch event last October. But now, fresh reports indicate that Google might be ready finally to launch the Pixelbook 2 later this year.

A new FCC filing contain the hallmarks of a Made by Google product which indicate that Google might be ready to launch the Pixelbook 2 along with the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones later this year. The FCC filing comes from Quanta, which manufactured the original Pixelbook. However, the filing has been kept confindential up to January 1, 2020, which gives Google ample time to launch the device during its October's launch event.

However, one point of confusion is the FCC ID 'HFSG021A', which as noted by 9To5 Google is a closer match to Pixel smartphones (for example, Pixel had the FCC ID G013A while Pixel 3A had the FCC ID G020A) than the original Pixelbook, which could indicate that the tech giant could changing its naming scheme to make it resemble the Pixel phones.
