Google could be working on a new Chromebook Pixel

Google’s Pixel Chromebooks are a thing of beauty. Not only are they ludicrously overpowered for Chrome OS, but they also sport stunning high-resolution displays, glossy touchscreens and ooze classic, minimalist style. It’s why the Pixel 2 – complete with two USB Type-C ports – impressed us, and why we fell in love with the Pixel C tablet despite its flaw.

Now it looks as though Google is ramping up to announce a new Chromebook Pixel. According to OMGChrome!, last month Google posted a job listing for “Quality Engineer Chromebook Pixel”. The role, based in Shanghai, calls for someone to “drive design of experiments and collect SPC [statistical process control] data to enable evaluation, qualification, and verification cost-effectively in manufacturing quality across functional teams.”

Google clearly sees the next Pixel as a defining moment for Chromebooks, stating that the new engineer role will “be part of shaping Google’s next game-changer”.

Now that Chromebooks can run Android apps, the need for a higher-end device makes more sense than it did before. While even your low-end Chromebooks can run Android apps with relative ease, it’s never a bad thing to have more power.

As always, don’t expect the Pixel to be cheap. The original shipped for around £1,000, with the Pixel 2 going for a similar asking price. Even the Pixel C will set you back £400 – before you’ve bought the optional £120 keyboard. Still, it will be interesting to see what Google plans to do with a third-generation Pixel.
