This Wednesday (05/10/2023) we finally had the chance to meet the Google Pixel Tablet — a highly anticipated device unveiled by Google at the prestigious I/O 2023 event (where the company also unveiled the Pixel 7a and the Pixel Fold).
This remarkable tablet offers a versatile experience, working both as a tablet and a smart display, thanks to its innovative base equipped with integrated speakers. This feature enhances audio quality, ensuring immersive sound and clear responses, even in noisy surroundings.
One of the standout features of the Pixel Tablet is its 11-inch IPS LCD display; with its slim bezels, this high-resolution screen provides an expansive viewing area for various activities like, for example, video calls using popular apps like Google Meet, where the 8-megapixel front camera (cleverly nestled within the bezel) will get the work done.
Even though tables are not commonly used to take pictures, the main camera of the device also has a resolution of 8 megapixels and is even accompanied by a flash, allowing users to capture moments with enhanced clarity.
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Google Pixel Tablet boasts an elegant design — constructed from premium aluminum, it is available in sophisticated colors such as “hazelnut,” “porcelain,” and “coral,” complemented by a sleek nanoceramic finish.
When utilized as a smart display, the tablet seamlessly attaches to the base via a magnetic connection, adding a touch of style to any environment.
Convenience and security are at the forefront of the Pixel Tablet’s user experience. The device features a fingerprint sensor discreetly integrated into its edge, offering effortless unlocking without the need for complex passcodes or facial recognition. Additionally, its advanced voice capture system, comprising three microphones, ensures accurate voice recognition and response even in challenging acoustic environments.
Another noteworthy aspect of the Pixel Tablet is its integration of Chromecast functionality, making it the first tablet with this feature. With a simple touch, users can effortlessly stream content from various devices, mirroring the experience of sending content to a TV.
Under the hood, the tablet is powered by the formidable Google Tensor G2 processor, the same powerhouse found in the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro smartphones. Paired with 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and offering up to 256 GB of internal storage using the high-speed UFS 3.0 technology, the Pixel Tablet excels in delivering smooth performance, even for resource-intensive tasks. Running on the native Android 13 operating system, the tablet guarantees three years of updates, ensuring users stay up to date with the latest features and security enhancements.
