the Google I/O 2022 developer conference officially opened. At the developer conference, Google released five new hardware products in succession, including smartphones, smartwatches, TWS headsets, tablets, and a concept AR glasses. Among them, the Pixel tablet is designed for entertainment use, but will not be available until 2023. It’s also the first time Google has launched a tablet since the Chrome OS-powered Pixel Slate in 2018.
The Pixel Slate has had successor models before, but Google later said it would stop plans for a tablet. Before that, the last tablet to run Android was the Pixel C in 2015.
Google says it plans to make the tablet “the perfect companion to the Pixel phone.” In addition, the 2023 tablet will be powered by the same Google Tensor chip as the phone.
However, Google did not disclose the price of the tablet. The teaser image shows that the tablet has a white border on the front, with a rear single-camera design, and four white contacts below the Google G logo, available in gray and green-gray colors.
