The difference this time around is that the Pixel Slate is going to have Google's own low-powered Chrome OS software at its core, rather than the ever-popular Android. We saw this set into action with the launch of the HP Chromebook X2 and Acer Chromebook Tab 10. All these devices and more will be announced on October 9 when Google will host its annual hardware event in NY. The internet is buzzing with leaks about Google's new smartphones and therefore, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect. That also will keep the price very low; it's rumored to be as little as $149. Majority of these leaks came from a Russian guy who allegedly sold a bunch unreleased version of the device. Oddly enough, it doesn't feature a camera for video calls, so you won't be able to make video calls using Google Duo or anything similar. However, even though not many leaks on this one have emerged online, we know something about it. Both sides of the tablet are equipped with a camera, and a fingerprint reader can be found on the top edge and a USB Type-C port on the side.
Along the bottom of the tablet are several magnetic pogo pads for communicating with accessories.
But, we're here to talk about the Pixel Slate.
The new Pixel "Slate" by Google is said to be a Chromebook tablet created to be attached to a separate keyboard.
Impact: If Google ends up releasing a tiny Pixel "Bonito" at some point, or as early as tomorrow, that would certainly be a surprise despite this report. Thanks to MySmartPrice and the search giant's United Kingdom online store (via ChromeUnboxed), we have official-looking renders of a collapsible keyboard and a new Pixelbook Pen. Google will live stream the event once it gets started.
Recently, serial tipster Evan Blass also shared a new render of the upcoming Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. So, Google wanted to continue with only a single team for future releases. The device will be available for grabs in dark blue color. Google will be jumping back in with the Pixel Slate, featuring a 3:2, stylus support and Chrome OS. Now the new introductions will be the one advancing this series.
Google will also be launching other products on October 9. We'll likely see the Pixel Slate announced later this month as part of Google's annual October event. However, the details about this device are scarce at the moment, so it remains to be seen if it indeed gets launched. It comes with 15,922 MB of RAM. It is also possible that at the presentation we will show the extension of the range of smart columns, which Google pays a lot of attention.
Of course, this isn't the first Chrome OS tablet, either.
