Google Chrome Pixel Concept Video Leaked, Gives Us Glimpse of a Beautiful Future

Chrome Pixel

Today, there is some potentially exciting “news” about Google and Chromebooks. Without diving too far into the back story, let’s talk about the actual video and then we will discuss how it came to be leaked to the Internet. In this video, a narrator (that we wish was Morgan Freeman), discusses pixels and their importance to anything image-related. Now, imagine a Chromebook that featured a touchscreen display with a resolution of 2560 x 1700. Too good to be true, right? Maybe or maybe, not. No one has been able to confirm if this is real or not. 

It is referred to in the video as the Chromebook Pixel. Think of this device as a Nexus-like Chromebook, designed and manufactured entirely by Google, “down to the last pixel.” It is quite the video, which someone clearly spent a ton of time working on. From what we can tell, this isn’t your everyday sloppy leaked video. So, how did it come to light?

According to the CEO of the website, Slinky.Me, the video was stolen after their servers were “hacked.” Interestingly enough, some are speculating that this is some type of hypebeasting move by either Slinky or even Google to get people excited for what is next in the Chromebook department.

Watch the video and let us know what you think. If this thing ever becomes real, I might just have to be the first in line. Needless to say, it’s gorgeous.

    Video is broken.

    Chromebooks actually look appealing to me now. I WANT ONE!

  • CaptM

    Aw man, I couldn’t watch this at work and was really wanting to see it when I got home.
    Now it’s marked as private content and no longer available. DAMN

    What video????

  • AJ Myrick

    Does anyone notice that the video has been made private?

  • Fynd

    16:9 ratio would be 2560×1440
    16:10.625 is 2560×1700

    I’d think Google would shoot for the prior. Unless my math is wrong.

    Uh, that video didn’t say anything about the product. Oh it has a touchscreen.

  • wakefinance

    Looks like Apple will be their hardware partner for this one…

    I think they mean “designed by apple” that looks an awful lot like my macbook pro.

    Also, does google do their advertising in house? If not why would it just be sitting on a server for someone to find…which probably consisted of terabytes worth of data.

    Why do people even speculate about 2560×1700 when the vast majority of users can’t afford anything over 1920×1080?

    This chromebook would be lucky if it had 1920×1080.

    • Doan

      I’m not sure your statement stacks up.

      • ElixirBlack

        Do you really think it is going to have a resolution above 1920×1080?

        • Doan

          I was referring to your comment about the vast majority being unable to afford better than 1920×1080.

          • ElixirBlack

            Look at the price of panels > 1920×1080 on Newegg. Do you think those items are affordable for the vast majority of consumers?

          • Doan

            Around $300 for 1080p+, yea, the majority can afford that. It’s higher end than most need, so they don’t buy it, but that’s not saying they can’t afford it.

            ie: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260047

          • ElixirBlack

            I’m not talking about 16:10 at 1920×1200 and you know it.

  • JBartcaps

    They better keep those colors on the chasis! i’ve always wanted a Google product that actually had their colors on it.

    Oh btw, i want this.

    • Mark Mann

      google’s colors are grey?

  • Michael G

    I know it wasn’t but it sounded a lot like Tom Selleck narrating. lol
    I’m due for a new lap top soon. Perhaps this will be the successor to my Toshiba Satellite.
