- It will feature an LCD panel, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage

Google Pixel Tablet images and key details have been leaked by Android researcher and leaker Kuba Wojciechowski. In May 2022, at the I/O 2022 developers event, the search engine tech giant confirmed the existence of the Pixel Tablet. The tablet is confirmed to launch this year globally. There is a possibility that the company may make it official alongside the Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold foldable phones in May 2023.
Wojciechowski had previously claimed that Google’s first Pixel-branded tablet would arrive in two options, the Pixel Tablet and the Pixel Tablet Pro. However, new information revealed by the tipster states that there will be only one version of the tablet hitting the market.

Google Pixel Tablet images, key details
The tipster has shared the leaked images of the Pixel Tablet’s pre-production unit. The device can be seen placed on a speaker. According to the leaker, Google may offer two kinds of docks, such as a speaker dock (Korlan / K6) and a charging dock (Yuzu / Y4) for Pixel Tablet buyers.
The tipster had previously claimed that the Pixel Tablet and Pixel Tablet Pro have “Tangor” and “TangorPro” codenames, respectively. These devices are said to be equipped with the original Tensor chip and the Tensor G2 chip, respectively. The above images belong to the TangorPro variant.
The tipster has now claimed that the Tangor model has been axed, which means that TangorPro will be the only model heading to the market. The device will feature a screen that offers a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM by Samsung, 26GB of built-in UFS storage by Kioxia, and a side-facing fingerprint reader.
The leaker claimed that the Pixel Tablet is equipped with a display supplied by China-based CSOT. The screen is paired with a Richtek RT4539 six-channel LED driver that is usually seen on devices with LCD panels. Hence, it appears that the Pixel Tablet will have an LCD screen.
Google Pixel Tablet specifications (rumoured)
Previous reports have revealed that the Pixel Tablet will have a 10.95-inch screen and will run on a 64-bit version of Android 13. It will have support for the USI 2.0 stylus. Apart from the 256GB edition, there could be a lower variant with 128GB of storage.
The Pixel Tablet will support Wi-Fi 6E but may lack LTE connectivity. It may feature an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 camera on the front. The same snapper could be available on its back.
Google Pixel Tablet India launch (rumoured)
The tipster said in September 2022 that the Pixel Tablet units had been shipped to India and other markets for internal testing. While it is expected to launch in May 2023 globally, there is no India-specific information on the release date.
