Google is expected to launch its Pixel Tablet this week at Google I/O, but Amazon jumped the gun and briefly posted its product page, giving us our first complete peek at the device’s specifications. Here’s what we found out. (With thanks to Roland Quandt for posting about this on Twitter.)
The Pixel Tablet will be sold in (at least) two colors, Porcelain (white) and Hazel (greenish-brown). (A third color, Coral, has been seen in the wild as well.)
As expected, it is powered by the same Google Tensor G2 SoC and Titan M2 security processor that debuted in the Pixel 7 series in late 2022. It ships with 8 GB of fast LPDDR5 RAM and can be had in configurations with either 128 GB or 256 GB of non-expandable UFS 3.1 storage.
The display is a 10.95-inch LCD panel with a 2560 x 1600 resolution, a 16:10 aspect ratio, and a pixel density of 276 ppi. The display outputs 500 nits of brightness, has an antiglare coating, and is compatible with USI 2.0 smartpens.
Connectivity comes via dual-band Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2, and it includes a UWB chipset plus Google Cast capabilities.
There are two cameras, one on the front and one on the rear, and they appear to have identical specs: 8 MP with an f/2.0 aperture, fixed focus, and an 84-degree field of view (FOV).
For audio, the Pixel Tablet sports four speakers, three microphones, and noise suppression capabilities.
There is a single USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 1 port for wired connectivity and a 4-pin accessory connector for magnetically connecting to the bundled speaker dock; both support charging, data transfer, and audio out.
The Pixel Tablet has a 27-watt-hour battery, and battery life is rated at up to 12 hours for video streaming.
Google will support the Pixel Tablet with a minimum of five years of security updates.
