Google had already teased its Pixel Tablet at last years’ Pixel 7 event, telling us to expect the device at some point in 2023. Today at Google I/O, they made it all official. Here’s what we know about Google’s new tablet that also doubles as a sort-of smart home dock with speaker attached.
We’ll have more soon, but Google told us most of the specs (which we knew) that include an 11-inch high-res screen, Tensor G2 chipset, 4-speaker setup, 8GB RAM with 128GB or 256GB storage, and 8MP rear and front cameras. It does indeed come with a dock that doubles as a speaker and charger.
Here’s the full list of Pixel Tablet specs:
- Display: 10.95″ LCD, 2560×1600

- Audio: 4 speakers
- Connectivity: WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, UWB

Google also revealed that the Pixel Tablet has Google Cast built-in (!), a home hub mode to let you control your smart home (goodbye, Nest Hub), and easy-switching between multiple profiles, since your household might have multiple people who want their own tablet experience each time.
Google Pixel Tablet arrives next month (June 20) starting at $499. There are three colors available: Porcelain, Hazel, and Rose. And yep, the speaker dock is included. Pre-orders open today.
