The notebook should be named Pixel 3 and does not yet have a specific release date, but specifications have already been released. The device would contain 4 GB of RAM, Intel processor, not yet specified, two USB-C ports, 3D active touchpad and backlit keyboard, the body of the notebook would be only 10 mm thick, which makes it compete directly with the Macbook Air.

The idea is to directly rival Windows and Mac devices and pin Microsoft and Apple in another segment as well, as in addition to this computer with Andromeda, Google also intends to launch a new Nexus Tablet with the system in partnership with Huawei that also. would have 4 GB of RAM.

If you have thought: "is this the system we were calling Fuchsia?"No, apparently no, there are no deeper details about it, but we will keep an eye out for any news and you will find out here at Diolinux. Fuchsia will really be for IoT.

Are Microsoft and Apple getting a big competitor?

Certainly. If there is a company capable of beating it, or at least competing with these giants, no doubt Google. With the application base Android already has, it can be interesting to a lot of people.

What did you think? Will Google reach the top of this market? Will Andromeda get it?
