The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, as well as the Pixel Watch, were all shown off at the same time as the Pixel Tablet. In 2023, the new tablet will be available.
At Google I/O in May, the Pixel Tablet made its official debut. And the Mountain View team just showed off a little bit more of it. The device will come out around next year. Its goal is to compete with Android tablets made by Samsung and Xiaomi, which have been the most popular so far. But it also stands out because it works better with the home.
It will include the same Tensor G2 processor as the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro and can operate the smart home. Mountain View homeowners showed how to utilize it with a speaker-equipped port. This means that the Pixel Tablet can become something like a Nest Hub.
Google doesn’t want the Pixel Tablet to end up in a desk drawer when it’s not being used. So, they’ve decided to make it fit in better with the rest of the house. It might not be the most complex in its field, but it takes a unique approach to what other brands have already done. In that case, they said it was the most “versatile and adaptable” they could find.
When the Pixel Tablet is magnetically docked, it becomes a digital photo frame and Google Assistant shortcut. It also states the dock’s built-in speaker has better-than-decent sound quality. When you remove it, it operates like a conventional tablet, and its strength seems to be video and music.
So don’t expect the device to be made for professional users and put on the market. It’s a home tablet in the strictest sense of the word.
Pixel Tablet aspires to be your smart home center
The Pixel Tablet is interesting because the dock can also be used to charge it. So, you don’t have to worry about the battery if you want to take it out of the dock to watch videos on YouTube or TV shows and movies on a streaming service.
Google still won’t say much about the rest of this device’s technical specs, which is a shame. We don’t know yet what storage and RAM options it will have when it comes out. Yes, it has been said in passing that a stylus can be used with it, but no details were given. We shouldn’t forget that it should work with the USI standard. As for software, it will come with Android 13, and people from California have talked about how they worked with app developers to make their apps work better on tablets.
If you want to know when you can get it, there’s also bad news. For now, all Google has said is that the Pixel Tablet will come out in 2023, but they haven’t said anything else.
