Google is reportedly working on a next-gen OS that would combine Android and Chrome OS, and named as Andromeda. There are rumors that Google will unveil an Andromeda-powered ‘Pixel 3’ laptop, which will hit the market in Q3 2017.
The Pixel 3 would feature a 12.3-inch display, with Google wanting its ultra-thin laptop to be used in ‘tablet’ mode, too. We could see something similar to Microsoft surface or Lenovo Yoga-type of flexibility with the Pixel 3. The Pixel 3 is supposedly powered by an Intel Core m3 or i5 processor with 8/16GB ram and 32/128GB of storage. We should see two models of Pixel 3, one with the Intel m3/32GB storage/8GB RAM and the higher-end model with Core i3/128GB storage/16GB RAM.
Expected specifications of the Pixel 3:
- Intel Core m3/Core i5 processor
- 8/16GB RAM
- 32/128GB storage
- Fingerprint scanner
- 2 x USB Type-C
- 5mm audio jack
- Stylus support
- Stereo speakers
- 10-hour (or so) battery
- Backlit keyboard
- Glass trackpad w/haptic feedback
- Andromeda OS
If Google can make work and combine its Android with Chrome OS to make similar OS like Windows/iOS, then the Andromeda can become the third most use OS and we could be looking at Google operating systems in PCs.
