Annual Google Developer Conference, Google I/Otakes place on Wednesday, but specifications of one of the devices likely to be shown at the event leaked over the weekend.
A listing for Google’s upcoming Pixel Tablet surfaced on Amazon Japan on Sunday. The now-removed page, which was previously spotted by WinFuture and others, said the tablet would be powered by Google’s Tensor G2 chip, have an 11-inch LCD display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels and 500 nits of brightness, 8GB of RAM and up to 256 GB memory.
Other features of the tablet include 8-megapixel front and rear cameras, Bluetooth 5.2, USI 2.0 touch pen compatibility, and four speakers, according to the listing. The Japanese price for the Pixel Tablet was ¥79,800, or roughly $590, £470 or AU$870.
Google did not respond to a request to confirm the device’s specifications.
Google previously announced that the Pixel tablet is coming in 2023, but hasn’t given any more details yet. CNET’s Scott Stein says Google could position the tablet as a home hub device and also expects it to be part of the company’s AI efforts.
In February, Google introduced its own AI chatbot called Bard, which is likely to get a lot of attention at I/O this week. The chatbot had a lot to make up for when CNET compared it to competitors like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Microsoft’s new Bing.
The Pixel tablet won’t be the only device scheduled to be shown off Google I/O on Wednesday. The company’s foldable phone, the Pixel Fold, is coming after years of rumors. Google will show more of Android 14, which is currently in beta, and we might get the debut of the Pixel 7A phone.
