Google Pixel Tablet has been officially launched at the company’s I/O Developer’s conference. This is the first tablet in the Pixel series and is a return for Google to the tablet market.
The tablet attaches to the charging dock with a speaker to enhance the audio quality. The Pixel Tablet has quad speakers and a nano-ceramic coating.
When the Pixel Tablet is docked, it acts as a hands-free Assistant or a Photo frame.
The tablet can control all smart home devices with the Google Home app that has been redesigned.
The Google Pixel Tablet was officially launched at the Google I/O 2023 tonight (May 10).
The company teased the device first at the Pixel 7 series launch in October last year.
The new product also marks Google’s entry into the tablet, which is mostly dominated by Apple’s iPads and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S and A-series products. Google states the tablet market has not significantly “changed” and the Pixel Tablet would address these problems.
It is powered by Google’s proprietary Google Tensor G2 SoC, which also features in Google Pixel 7 smartphone series.
The Google Pixel Tablet is available in three colours, giving customers ample amount of options.
At its I/O annual developer conference today, Google took a short break from uttering the word “AI” all the time to unveil some new hardware.
And just as we expected, the Pixel Tablet is now fully official. First teased last year, it’s definitely been a long time coming.
The Pixel Tablet has a 10.95-inch 2560×1600 LCD screen with 500 nits of typical brightness, “anti-smudge coating”, and support for USI 2.0 styluses. It’s powered by Google’s Tensor G2 chipset, and features the Titan M2 security coprocessor. You get 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The tablet features a pair of seemingly identical 8 MP fixed focus cameras, one on the front, one on the back.
There’s a fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button, and a “27-watt-hour” battery which should last for “up to 12 hours of video streaming”.
Naturally, the Pixel Tablet runs Android 13, and it will get five years of updates.
It has four speakers and three mics and will be available in Porcelain, Hazel, and Rose.
In the box, you’ll find the tablet and a charging speaker dock, as well as a power brick for the dock.
This has a magnetic docking interface with pogo pins, and 15W maximum charging rate. There’s one 43.5mm full-range speaker inside.
The idea here is that when you aren’t actively using the tablet, it can become a smart display – or a smart speaker with a display attached to it.
Something like that. You can also Cast to it, so you can watch things in the kitchen, for example, without having to hold the tablet yourself.
The Pixel Tablet is priced at $499 in the US, £599 in the UK, and €679 in Germany. It is already up for pre-order from the Google Store in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Japan, and Australia, and will become available on June 20. Google is also selling a Pixel Tablet Case (pictured above) for $79 (£89, €99).
According to Google, the dock has magnets, which makes it easy to dock and undock the Pixel tablet. Check out the complete specifications.

Google is also bundling the charging dock for free.
5) What are Google Pixel Tablet features and functionalities?
Ans) Since it is a Google tablet, the Pixel Tablet is powered by Android, likely Android 13 at first. It means you can expect exclusive Pixel features – be it for photography or productivity. Some of the Google apps are also optimised for this form factor.
Additionally, if you’re already using Google apps like Gmail, Calendar, Meet, Messages, Photos, Drive, and YouTube, you can expect cross-connectivity. It means users do not have to worry about transferring. Speaking of data transferring, there’s also Nearby Share, Google’s answer to AirDrop to share files wirelessly and seamlessly.
Other key features of the tablet include quad speaker system, three microphones, a USB-C charging port, side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and support for Wi-Fi 6. Google has also unveiled a hub that doubles as a speaker, making the Google Pixel Tablet an Amazon Echo Show-like portable device. The hub also acts like a charger and Pixel tablet can turn into a digital photo frame.
6) SPECIFICATIONS OF GOOGLE’S FIRST TABLET EMERGES ONLINE: COULD DETHRONE IPAD IN TERMS OF VALUE.Details?
Ans) Google gave a sneak peek of the Pixel tablet during last year’s I/O event. This year, at I/O ’23 (set to kick off on May 10), the company is likely to unveil its highly anticipated tablet. Alongside this release, the event will also see the introduction of the Pixel 7a and Google’s maiden foldable device, the Pixel Fold.
Although Google has already revealed some details about the tablet, a recent leak occurred when an Amazon Japan listing (which has since been taken down) disclose everything about the device.
7) Google Pixel Tablet will feature an in-house Tensor chip.Details?
Ans) The listing provides confirmation that the Pixel Tablet will come with Google’s in-house Tensor G2 chip. It is the same system-on-a-chip (SoC) found in the Pixel 7 series, including the upcoming Pixel 7a. It will be accompanied by 8GB of RAM and a choice between 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
Additionally, the tablet will sport a 10.95-inch QHD+ LCD display. The panel will have a 16:10 aspect ratio and a rated brightness of 500 nits. Notably, it will support USI 2.0 stylus support for those who like to draw or create digital art.
The tablet will also have 8MP cameras on both the front and back with an f/2.0 aperture. However, the video recording capability will only be limited to 1080p resolution. The camera hardware on the Pixel Tablet will not match the quality of Pixel smartphones. But coming from Google, you can expect access to exclusive features like Magic Eraser and Photo Unblur.
The listing also reveals other specifications of the device. It includes quad speakers, 3 microphones, a USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 port, a 4-pin accessory connector, and a physical mute switch. Likewise, the connectivity options include WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and Ultrawide Band support.
8) How is the separate charging/speaker dock?
Ans) Furthermore, Google has officially confirmed that the Pixel Tablet will come with a charging cum speaker dock. This will bring along extra functionalities and convenience to the users. For instance, when you’re not using the tablet, you can simply dock it and use it as a smart hub while charging the device. This will enable you to control various smart home accessories, such as turning off lights, adjusting thermostats, and more.
You will also be able to use the tablet as a photo frame while in dock mode. The built-in speakers in the dock will enhance the audio quality of the tablet. As a result, it can also be a perfect device for watching movies, listening to music, or making video calls. Leaks suggest that Google might bundle the dock with the tablet itself, so you wouldn’t need to purchase it separately.
9) What is Google Pixel Tablet: Price?
Ans) Although Google is yet to disclose the official price, the Amazon Japan Listing suggests it could cost 79,800 yen (~$592). For that price, the Pixel tablet could offer great value for users. And there’s finally a possibility that it could challenge Apple’s dominance in the tablet market. Since Google has complete control over both the hardware and software of the device, it can finally tune the user experience to create a worthy competitor in this space.
At a similar price, you’ll have the option to choose a 10th Gen iPad. But it only offers 64GB of storage—a meager amount for those with storage-intensive apps. So you can choose the 256GB option which will cost you $599. But even then, you’d be limited to the support of the first-generation Apple Pencil. In contrast, the Pixel Tablet likely presents a more enticing option. It will come with updated hardware and compatibility with the support for the latest accessories. Rumors suggest that the charging/speaker dock might even be included in the price, making it an unbeatable deal.
