Google is well known for having a stake in many areas, and their October 4 event will likely bring the announcement of another: laptops. Google has already brought us Chromebooks, but the new device, known internally as 鈥淏ison鈥 and informally as the 鈥淧ixel 3,鈥 according to聽Android Police,is so much more. Hiroshi Lockheimer,聽SVP of Android, Chrome OS & Play, hinted at something huge.

Bison will reportedly be super thin with a 12.3鈥 screen, and Google intends for it to support tablet mode as well, potentially like the Lenovo Yoga.聽It will likely boast either an聽Intel M3 or i5 Core processor with 32 or 128GB of storage and 8 or 16GB of RAM.

Other features include聽a fingerprint scanner, two USB-C ports, stylus support (stylus not included), a battery that will last about聽10 hours and 鈥 wait for it 鈥 a 3.5mm HEADPHONE JACK! Looks like Google isn鈥檛 ready to go the way of Apple yet. The trackpad will have features similar to Force Touch on the聽MacBook, so expect lots of haptic feedback. Bison will likely run Andromeda, a combination of Chrome OS that we鈥檝e seen in Chromebooks, and Android.

Even though Bison is聽not going to be cheap, the聽planned price point聽is nonetheless聽competitive: The device should start at $799 (still cheaper than a MacBook). We should be seeing Bison聽launch around September聽2017.
