Google plans to launch a new Pixelbook at next month’s “Made by Google” hardware showcase, according to multiple sources familiar with the plan.

Two of those, “Nocturne” and its failed predecessor, “Meowth”, were accounted for by the Pixel Slate, leaving “Atlas” unexplained.

Google’s Pixelbook is a slick, expensive piece of Chrome OS hardware. Odds are, users who pick it up will want to keep it protected when they’re out and about. There are a few sleeves available for the machine, but Tech21 debuted its Evo Adapt case for the Pixelbook not long ago for always-on protection.

At last year’s October hardware event, Google unveiled its high-end Chromebook called the Pixelbook. With its $1,000 price tag, consumers would get the best specced Chrome OS machine on the market packed inside premium hardware.

But if buyers, like myself, spend that much cash on a laptop, it shouldn’t be plagued with unmanageable Bluetooth problems — especially since pretty much none of these issues have been resolved even six months after its release.

While the Pixelbook only runs Chrome OS, its hardware isn’t — technically speaking — entirely locked in to the lightweight laptop (and lately, tablet) OS from Google.

In 2016, we learned that Google was beginning work on a new operating system, with speculation at the time being that it could replace Android. Things were quiet until May of last year, when an innovative, but early home screen design was uncovered. Now that we’ve seen it up and running on a Pixelbook, it seems more likely Fuchsia could eventually supplant both Android and Chrome OS.

With the resurgence of attention on Google’s new Fuchsia OS, we thought it would be good to give a recap of what exactly Fuchsia is and why we’re excited about it.
