The future Google Pixel Tablet will have a good set of features, according to the announcement, which appeared briefly on Amazon‘s Japanese site before being removed.
The 11-inch tablet will reportedly be equipped with a Google Tensor G2 chip, 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The device is also expected to have an LCD display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels and a brightness of 500 nits. The tablet will also support the USI 2.0 stylus, have two 8-megapixel fixed-focus cameras (f/2.0, 1/4-inch sensor), four speakers, three microphones, a USB-C charging port, and support for Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi wireless modules 6.
The capacity of the battery built into the tablet will be 27 Wh, which should be enough for up to 12 hours of video streaming.
In the now-deleted ad, the price of the Pixel Tablet was 79,800 yen (about $591) for 128GB of storage, while previous rumors suggested that the price of the tablet could start at 600 euros (about $662) in Europe. The listing also mentions a launch date of June 20, although Google has yet to officially confirm it.
First announced at last year’s Google I/O event, the Pixel Tablet is expected to be available in four colors, including green/black and beige/white, as well as a light pink variant.
The tablet will come with a wireless dock that can charge and act as a speaker, effectively turning it into a smart display similar to the Amazon Echo Show.
Google is expected to introduce the Pixel tablet, as well as the first foldable smartphone Pixel Fold, budget Pixel 7A and may preview the upcoming Pixel 8 and 8 Pro at this year’s I/O event on May 10.
