Google Pixel Tablet screen size and storage variants revealed by new report
Google's long-dead tablet lineup is slated to make a comeback sometime in 2023. Google teased the Pixel Tablet at I/O 2022, showing off its design and UI. Third-party leaks chimed in with other details, such as its camera sensor and stylus compatibility. 91mobiles, in collaboration with prolific Pixel leaker Kuba Wojciechowski, has now revealed more about the tablet.
The Google Pixel Tablet is now in EVT (Engineering Validation Testing) stage and is being tested worldwide. Information mined from regulatory authority listings suggests that it could feature a colossal 11-inch screen; quite uncommon for a "budget" device. This listing could be referring to the supposed Pro model that was discovered within Android 13's code. Other specs include 128/256 GB of storage, Wi-Fi 6 and Android 13. Previous reports suggested that the Pixel Tablet could use the Pixel 6/Pixel 6 Pro's Tensor SoC. Given that the tablet isn't due to launch anytime soon, we will have to rely on leaks for further information.
Until this point, the Pixel Tablet was shaping to be a glorified Smart Display. While Google is no stranger to the tablet market, the ecosystem has changed since its departure. Pixel phones have been lauded (and derided) for their camera prowess. Unfortunately for the Pixel Tablet, cameras are one of the least used components in that class of hardware. Google might have to advertise the tablet as a home hub/productivity champion for it to stand any chance against Apple, Samsung and others.
