According to a new report, Google will announce another consumer-marketed Pixel device, but this year, it won’t be a Chromebook powered by Chrome OS. Rumored to sport the name Pixel C, the device will be a tablet with a 10.2″ display, featuring Android 6.0 and NVIDIA-made Tegra X1 processor with 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM.
Expected to also feature a USB Type-C port, the Pixel C could feature the same look as past Pixel devices, with the metal build and Google-colored light bar. Google is expected to launch two keyboard attachments for the device, one leather and the other aluminum.
Pixel devices, from what we already know, are Google’s top-tier, luxury products. They are not made in partnership with any other OEMs, and usually carry a very high price tag. So, while the idea of a Pixel tablet running Marshmallow is exciting, anyone hoping for a Nexus-like price tag may be disappointed when announced.
The Pixel C is reported to launch later in November, but we may see it teased at tomorrow’s Nexus event.
