After being announced under the radar at Google I/O 2022, Google’s first solid Pixel Tablet leaks have surfaced from fairly trusted folks at 91Mobile. It’s a spec-focused leak, giving us a look at the key features we can expect when the Pixel Tablet debuts, including storage, processor, and screen size.

According to the report, Pixel is currently in the EVT (Engineering Verification Test) phase. This means that the hardware is fully completed and no major changes are expected. At this point, the Pixel tablet is said to come with an 11-inch screen, support for WiFi 6, and 128GB – 256GB of storage. It will also be powered by the same Tensor that powered the Pixel 6 last year when it launches next year. Although the Pixel Tablet has been positioned as a replacement for the Nest Hub (something its frugal design seems to confirm), this report claims that Google is testing a USI (Universal Stylus Initiative) stylus for this. The Pixelbook and Pixel Slate were Google’s last big-screen devices to support styluses for note-taking and art.

Google’s last Pixel-branded tablet was the Pixel Slate, which runs ChromeOS. The company didn’t follow through, instead leaving the tablet market to the likes of Samsung and other Android manufacturers. Samsung has done such a good job with Android tablets that it’s hard to see what Google will bring to the table here for a company with a reckless hardware reputation.

Google will need to do a lot to convince disapproving enthusiasts that this tablet is worth investing in as part of its goal to build the Pixel system. It would be a compelling argument — if Google didn’t just unofficially drop the critically acclaimed Pixelbooks.

Other than the Pixel Tablet, Google is set to announce the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel Watch in October. We may learn more about the tablet next.
