Google’s Pixelbook 2 appears to be getting closer to launch, as an FCC ID of the device has just appeared. Quanta Computer, the ODM for Google Made Chromebooks, was spotted adding a new listing to the FCC with a request for a device ID’d as HFSG021A. While this string of letters and numbers may seem meaningless as well, Google’s Pixels 3 and 3a have the respective FCC IDs of G013A and Go20A. Once the HFS prefix is stripped away from Quanta’s listing, we now have GO21A, which matches that of the Pixel 3 and 3a.
In other words, a new Pixel device from Quanta, Google’s laptop ODM.
While it appears initially to be an open and shut case, Googles Pixelbook and Slate’s FCC IDs were HFSCOA and HFSCIA respectively. With that in mind, the GO21A would have the potential to be a different sort of Pixel device. 9to5Google, however, found proof that the device uses an Intel Wireless-AC 9260 modem, one which has already been linked to the Pixelbook 2.
Google is expected to launch its Pixelbook 2 this fall. Whether it’s learned from the lessons of the original Pizelbook and the Pixel Slate is something we’ll have to wait and see about.
