Google working on ‘Pixel 3’ laptop with new Andromeda OS

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.
