For the first time in many years, Google is launching a new one Android tablet. It confirmed this on its own Google IO 2022 conference, after the show Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, Pixel watch and Android 13.
But there’s a catch here: it’s not fast. Google has confirmed that it will appear at some point in 2023, but hopefully by now we’ll see it more.
Not much has been shown about the tablet other than the image you can see above (as well as a few other glimpses). In our fresh look, it’s very similar to the Google Home Hub that someone took off the stand, albeit with a slightly different kind of software.
The frame around the screen is quite large, which leads some on the TechRadar team (including this author) to think it could be a mid-range tablet rather than a premium one.
We’ve heard that it will also use Google’s own Tensor chipset, but if it comes out in 2023, it could be a second- or even third-generation version of this processor.
On Google IO the company also showed its focused on Android 13 tabletso we can expect that this software will also appear on this tablet – it makes a great time for Google to release its new version.
Google has described this as an exciting time for tablets, so a big software update and now proprietary hardware, and we hope to hear more about the Google Pixel tablet before its launch.
If we allow to assume briefly: Google did not speak 100% firmly about the tablet, so we assume that it does not yet have a specific release window. However, since the company is teasing it so early, we will almost certainly hear more about it on Google IO 2023.
