The Pixel Tablet is finally here and becomes the first tablet with Google’s Tensor G2 chip. Pixel Tablet is not really a surprise, Google continues its somewhat unusual launch strategy and showed the tablet already in October last year with Pixel 7, but now it’s finally here.
Pixel Tablet cannot be purchased without the docking station, which charges the device, boosts the sound through built-in speakers, and transforms Pixel Tablet into a better version of Nest Hub, which can act as a smart home control, music player, and digital photo frame. Like Nest Hub, Pixel Tablet also has the amazing feature of Ambient EQ, which aggressively calibrates the screen depending on ambient light, making the screen look like a real painting in some situations. For content streaming, there is also built-in Chromecast support in Pixel Tablet.
The tablet itself consists of a 10.95-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 (276 ppi) and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The screen also supports USI 2.0 pens. According to Google, the battery should last for 12 hours of video streaming and can be charged via the dock or USB-C. Inside is Google’s Tensor G2 chip, along with 8 GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128 to 256 GB UFS 3.1 storage. There is a camera on both the front and back, both at 8 MP with support for features such as Magic Eraser, portrait mode (for the front camera), and Night Sight. There is also a fingerprint reader for secure access to all content.
The tablet is available in two different colors: Porcelain and Hazel. It will be available in stores on June 20th at the Google Store.
