Google’s Pixel brand is limited to Chromebooks, the first Chromebook Pixel was launched back in 2013 and a few months ago an updated model was released. According to a new rumor Google is going to expand the Pixel brand to tablets later this year, it’s going to launch a tablet called Pixel C that runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The Pixel C will be unlike the other Pixel devices because it won’t be running Chrome OS, rumor has it that the tablet will be powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the new version of Google’s mobile operating system that’s expected to be released next month.

Pixel C is rumored to have a 10.2 inch display with 308 pixels per inch, under the hood it may have an NVIDIA X1 quadcore processor with Maxwell graphics processor aided by 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

Since it’s part of the Pixel brand the tablet is rumored to look quite like the Chromebooks, metal finish and all, without the physical keyboard obviously. Though it is said that two keyboard accessories will be offered as well, one in a metal and the other in a leather finish, which attach to the tablet and charge automatically when closed.

Pixel C is also expected to have a lightbar on the back which will glow to indicate remaining battery life, a USB Type-C charger may also be on board, and the tablet is expected to carry a premium price tag even though there’s no information as yet on what Google might ask for this tablet.

Nothing has been officially confirmed as yet so take all of this with a grain of salt for now.
