There were already rumors that Google might be working on a new Chromebook device in 2016, which was codenamed "Bison" and was supposed to have a slim form-factor with a thickness under 10mm.

As for the new Pixel smartphones, two new models are expected: a refresh of the original Pixel smartphones released previous year, and a larger "XL" model with extra features. The new Pixel Chromebook is speculated to feature a 12.3-inch screen, along with options for either a 32GB or 128GB internal storage unit, coupled with 8GB or 16GB of RAM.

Few details exist about a smaller model of the Google Home, but there's a high likelihood that it'll simply be a smaller version of the original Google Home.
