Renders of a Google Pixel tablet have been produced by the talented designer Snoreyn based on a recently revealed design patent. The Pixel tablet in the fan-made renders operates on Android 12 and borrows some of its looks, especially the color scheme, from the upcoming Google Pixel 6 smartphone.

There is plenty of hype at the moment about the soon-to-be-launched Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones, and it certainly wouldn’t be a bad thing if the search engine giant also released a tablet device to accompany the forthcoming Pixels. While this is extremely unlikely, it hasn’t stopped designer Snoreyn (Giuseppe Spinelli), working in conjunction with LetsGoDigital, from creating a set of eye-catching renditions of a Google Pixel tablet.

The renders posted at the end of this article are based on a design patent that was published in June of this year. While the line drawings in the patent don’t give too much away about the potential Google Pixel tablet, there are a couple of observations to pick out. First, the device has the tiniest of bezels, which could actually be a drawback for some users in regard to holding the tablet without accidentally operating an app on the touchscreen – even though it does make for a good-looking slate.

Secondly, there is a rectangular housing or bump on the rear with rounded corners, which Snoreyn has used for placing the familiar Google "G" logo. The Pixel tablet has been imagined to operate on Android 12 in the images, but as LetsGoDigital points out, Google could opt for Chrome OS here. The company’s seemingly mothballed Nexus lineup of devices utilized Android, with the Google Nexus 9 tablet being launched with Android 5.0 Lollipop (later upgraded to Android 7.1.1 Nougat).

The color scheme chosen for the Google Pixel tablet renders clearly emulates one of the colorways that have been shown off in marketing images for the Pixel 6 smartphones, and in this case it sports a pleasant sand color (“sorta sand”, “just sand”, “oh so sandy”?). With Xiaomi recently shaking things up in the tablet market with its highly successful Pad 5 launch perhaps now would be a good time for Google to revisit its tablet lineup and release a Pixel slate.
