A video just made the rounds on the internet claiming to be Google’s very own laptop, named the Chromebook Pixel.
The video comes from a company named Slinky. The leaked video was taken down after a while, but was uploaded on YouTube soon enough. The company’s CEO, Victor Koch, claimed on Google Plus that they have been hacked and some of their projects have been leaked. More interesting is that Sergey Brin is tagged on the apology note.
The Chromebook Pixel, named Google Link by the source, features a super high-res screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1700. To top it off, it’s also a touch-enabled display. Halfway through the video, there was an array of colored dots shown which resembles the Nexus logo in a way. Other than that, there seems to be nothing else to note.
No other brands have been mentioned, so it could be possible that this one is similar to Google’s Nexus line – specifically the discontinued Q. The video can be a fake however, but there is a high chance that this could be real since the video is professionally made and the clues hinting towards it.
Rounding up the rumors, it seems that along with this, we will see Android Key Lime Pie with the Motorola X Phone when Google I/O comes.
