After the under-the-radar announcement at Google I/O 2022, the first solid leak of Google’s Pixel Tablet has emerged from the pretty reliable folks at 91Mobiles. This is a spec-focused leak, giving us an idea of the core features we can expect when the Pixel Tablet comes out, including its storage capacity, processor, and screen size.
As per the report, Pixel is currently entering the EVT (engineering validation test) phase. This means that the hardware is complete and no major changes are expected. At this stage, the Pixel Tablet is reportedly coming with an 11-inch display, WiFi 6 support, and 128GB – 256GB storage. It will also be powered by the same Tensor that powered last year’s Pixel 6 when it launches next year. While the Pixel Tablet has been rumored to be positioned as a Nest Hub replacement (something its frugal design seems to confirm), this report claims Google is testing a USI (Universal Stylus Initiative) pen for this. The Pixelbook and Pixel Slate are Google’s last big-screen devices to support a stylus for taking notes and art.
Google’s last Pixel-branded tablet is the Pixel Slate, which is powered by ChromeOS. The company didn’t follow through, instead handing the tablet market over to Samsung and other Android manufacturers. Samsung has done such a good job with Android tablets that it’s hard to see what Google will bring to the table here for a company with a bad reputation on hardware.
Google needs to do a lot to convince turned down fans that the tablet is worth investing in as part of its goal of building the Pixel ecosystem. This would be a compelling argument — if Google hadn’t simply dropped the critically acclaimed Pixelbook.
In addition to the Pixel Tablet, Google will announce the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel Watch in October. We can learn more about the tablet.
