In the next few weeks, Google will be hosting its autumn hardware event, where it will unveil its new Pixel flagship phones - the "showcase" devices for Android 8.0 Oreo, which it announced yesterday.

It's obviously still possible that this new Chromebook Pixel is a completely separate product from Bison, but the timings do match up.

To recall, a report from March this year had declared the Chromebook Pixel lineup dead, with a Google official indicating that the company wasn't planning on updating the series.

The specs of this new Chromebook are now unknown, but going by the specs of various Chromebooks Pixel, we can expect them to be impressive. Whether or not this new Chromebook Pixel is the Bison or not, though, it's expected to be a Chromebook rather than run Andromeda. A new report now claims that the brand is preparing to launch a new Chromebook Pixel laptop and mini Google Home as well. With not two, but four potential products launching under Google's banner, the company will be having quite a busy quarter. It's not yet clear if the same holds true for the mini Google Home or not.

Burnley to bag Wood in £15m swoop
Burnley have agreed a £15m deal with Leeds United to sign New Zealand striker Chris Wood , Sky Sports News understands. I personally hope he will do fine.

At the moment, details of the specs and features of both the Chromebook Pixel and Google Home mini are still unknown.

A smaller, cheaper update would certainly be a welcome development, if Amazon's success with its Echo Dot is any indicator.

Android Police had no additional details about the new device, but noted a smaller version makes sense given the popularity of the more economical Echo Dot, which is $130 cheaper than the Echo.

Google's Chromebooks have made inroads in the education market, so much that Microsoft has built its own Windows laptop to compete with them. Whether it comes with Bison's rumored 12.3-inch screen and Wacom stylus is unknown.
