We’re expecting Google to drop news on its latest Pixel smartphones any day now. Several leaks have taken place over the last couple of months and while much of the focus has been placed on the smartphone lineup, it looks like we’ll be seeing a Pixel tablet this year too.
Google is no stranger to the tablet market. Back in the Nexus days, HTC and Samsung both produced tablets for Google’s first-party hardware lineup. Google will be jumping back in with the Pixel Slate, featuring a 3:2, stylus support and Chrome OS. The Pixel Slate was leaked by the folks at MySmartPrice, with images being posted:
The Pixel Slate seems to be a competitor to both the iPad and the Microsoft Surface, both of which make good use of detachable keyboards. The Pixel Slate will also have a detachable keyboard accessory, transforming the tablet into a capable work machine.
The keyboard comes with a dedicated button for Google Assistant and can wrap around the whole tablet like a case when not being used.
We don’t have confirms specifications at this time but according to Android Police, we could be looking at a 2400×1600 resolution display and an Intel Kaby Lake processor under the hood. We’ll likely see the Pixel Slate announced later this month as part of Google’s annual October event.
KitGuru Says: Google will be giving the Pixel lineup a complete refresh this year, with two new Pixel 3 smartphones and a new tablet. Are any of you looking forward to the next batch of Google Pixel devices?
