The Pixel Tablet was officially presented yesterday, May 10th, at the Google I/O. The manufacturer is back on the tablet market with a special twist:
The Pixel Tablet is a tablet and a smart display at the same time. You can find out everything about the release, prices and specs below.
Pixel Tablet: These are the specs
Unsurprisingly, but mentioned for the sake of completeness, the tablet runs Android 13. Google emphasized at the I/O that they have optimized the operating system for tablets and foldables.
The screen has a screen diagonal of 11 inches in a 16:10 format and has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. You can unlock the tablet via fingerprint sensor.
Four loudspeakers for stereo sound are installed on the flounder, which can be used by the user. Three microphones are at your side for video conferences.
The tablet is powered by the Tensor G2 processor, which is also found in the new Pixel 7a and the Pixel Fold.
The 8-core processor is supported by 8 GB of RAM. You can choose between 128 GB and 256 GB for your data.
A special feature of the Pixel Tablet: Google has installed a Chromecast.
The 7000 mAh battery is charged either via the USB-C socket or the included dock. This is where another special feature of the tablet comes into play.
If you place the Pixel tablet on the dock, it automatically becomes a smart display, which is similar to the Nest devices.
In this mode, audio and video content can be streamed to the device via Chromecast. The sound then goes out via the dock, which according to Google promises a stronger bass.
