The higher-end 4K option will have the same "Molecular Display" branding as Google's Pixel Slate tablet, according to the site, which cited anonymous sources. You'll apparently be able to choose between models with Intel Core m3, i5 or i7 processors, 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage.
