There have been reports Google was working on a new Chromebook Pixel with a modified version of Android, and a new leak, via Droid-Life, has just unveiled what the device will look like.

Known as the Google Pixelbook, the upcoming premium Chromebook will feature a hybrid design and support for an official Google-made stylus, which is said to be pressure sensitive and exhibit no lag.

Judging from the images released by Droid-Life, the device is taking inspiration from Microsoft’s line of hybrid laptops, allowing consumers to use the Pixelbook in multiple configurations.

Specs, including processor and RAM, aren’t included in Droid-Life’s report. However, the site does say the Pixelbook will be available in 128GB, 256GB, and 528GB storage configurations, with a starting price of $1,199. The other models will cost $1,399 and $1,749, respectively.

The device matches more closely to the design and color scheme introduced with last year’s Pixel smartphone lineup. Even the new stylus, dubbed Pixelbook Pen and said to cost $99, features a two-tone silver and white color scheme.

Expect to hear more details about the Pixelbook at Google’s October 4 event.
