We have long known that the Google Atlas Chromebook is under development and it seems that the laptop has advanced enough to check the actual device. In the two videos below, you can see that Atlas is set in the steps for some display tests, both of which have generated errors that Chromium's team will be working on. Brandon Lall was kind enough to advise me on these bugs.

Here's your first look at Atlas in a video shot of a portrait mode:
This does not show us much more than a rounded-corner display, the top two rows of keyboard keys that are standard, and an interesting part below the display: there is a container that says "Product Name".
The second video provides a much better overall view, although we can not say much more than it except the speaker grilles on the left and right of the keyboard. Look carefully and see them.
From these videos, it's impossible to say what the natural display resolution is, although there are references to Atlas code 4K in the past. If I had to guess the size of the screen, I would say that it is in the range of 12 to 13 inches, based on the keys on the keyboard compared to the screen. The display looks rather widescreen than the current 3: 2 ratio of Pixelbook and Pixel Slate.
And this leads to a curious thought: Perhaps the Atlas will not be a device from Google, also known as: a sequel to the Pixelbook. The aspect ratio is not the only reason to wonder about it;
I have no evidence to support this, but I obey the fact that Atlas is Samsung's device for several reasons.
First, it does not have a high-end Chromebook on the market compared to the Chromebook 14 of Dell Inspiron 14, Acer Chromebook 13 and Spin 13, or Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630.
And secondly, Samsung does not make a new Chromebook debut for a while. Last year's Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 was a previous year's update, and Chromebook Pro by Samsung also started in 2017. The rounded corner design also reminds me of the current Samsung devices. Again, I have no evidence to support these thoughts at this time; I think I remember that although the original code suggested that Atlas would be a 2-in-1 mobile as the HP Chromebook X2, the second one showed otherwise on the hinge basis. It's hard to say for sure, but it looks like a standard 2-in-1 device. I am completely expecting eight generations of Intel processors inside Atlas, regardless of its form factor or manufacturer. It's possible to see Atlas's debut in May in Google I / O – especially if it's a Google device, but we're more likely to see a drop-down event if it's created by the Google Chromebook. And if it is Samsung or any other hardware partner who will sell it? A startup event can happen at any time as soon as Atlas is ready.
