The previous stars of the current I/O developer conference were clearly the Google Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a. But other hardware came onto the stage, which was also teased for the first time last year. The Google Pixel tablet is here. It is based on a 10.95-inch LCD display with 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. The panel offers a typical brightness of 500 nits, an “anti-smudge coating” and support for USI 2.0 pens. As with the Fold and the 7a, it is powered by a Tensor G2 chipset in combination with a Titan M2 security coprocessor. We also get 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The tablet sports two seemingly identical 8-megapixel fixed-focus cameras, one on the front and one on the back. There is a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button and a “27-watt-hour” battery, which is said to be enough for “up to 12 hours of video streaming”. The Pixel Tablet runs Android 13, but Google promises to provide updates for five years. It has four speakers and three microphones and will be available in Porcelain, Hazel and Rose colors.
In addition to the tablet, there is also a docking station in the box that acts as a charger and speaker. The dock has a magnetic holder for the Pixel Tablet and charges with 15 watts. Inside is a 43.5mm full-range speaker. With the dock, the Google Pixel tablet transforms into a smart display that can display audio and video from your entire smart home.
