Google officially presented the Pixel Tablet during its traditional I/O conference. Information about the device appeared on the network long time ago, so we only have to summarize it.
The body of the Pixel Tablet is made of aluminum and has a special nanotextured coating. The novelty was equipped with an 11-inch LCD with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:10. Tensor G2 chipset is responsible for performance. LPDDR5 RAM is installed at 8 GB, and UFS 3.1 storage capacity is 128 GB or 256 GB. The tablet has two 8 MP cameras: front and main.
One of the main features of the tablet is the included docking station. It charges the tablet and also has a built-in speaker. When the Pixel Tablet is docked, it turns into a smart display — your photos can be displayed on the screen, and there’s also quick access to the Google Home app to control other smart devices. The device has built-in Chromecast technology, so you can “transfer” music from your smartphone to your tablet in a couple of clicks.
Google claims to have solved the problem with typing on a tablet – voice typing should work perfectly. Also, the developers provided the possibility to quickly switch between different user profiles.
The Pixel Tablet received four built-in speakers, three microphones, a USB-C port for wired charging, and a fingerprint scanner. A battery with a capacity of 27 Wh should be enough for 12 hours of video streaming. Google offers a special case with a stand for the tablet, which allows you to position the device at the most convenient angle.
The Google Pixel Tablet is available in three colors: white, pink, and green. The cost of the novelty starts at $499. Pre-orders for the tablet are already open, the device will go on sale on June 20.
