Google Pixel Tablet gets stylus support

Rumors ·

Last I/O, Google announced yet another tablet of its own, to everyone's great surprise. This tablet is not expected until 2023 but is already certified and gets support for a stylus.

Google briefly showed the Pixel Tablet last May during its annual Google I/O event. According to Google, this is supposed to be the "most helpful tablet" ever, and now we're learning more about how Google plans to do that. Recently the product turned up at USI, where it received certification. USI stands for Universal Stylus Initiative. With this, it seems certain that there will be support for pen input.

Stylus support is anything but unique to tablets, so Google will have to come up with more to make this the most helpful tablet ever. Unfortunately, we don't learn much from USI. Except that Google's tablet is codenamed Tangor. Google itself told us that the tablet runs under Android and uses a Google Tensor processor.

Receiving the first certification is nice, but the timing is telling. The Google Pixel Tablet is in fact not expected until 2023 and is therefore far from ready. Perhaps Google is further along in its development than we currently think.

Google surprises with Pixel Tablet during Google I/O

"Most helpful tablet" won't arrive until 2023

Tablet news ·

During the I/O 2022 event, Google came up with a surprising bit of news. In 2023 it will release another Pixel tablet. Google is not new to the tablet market. It previously sold Nexus tablets from other manufacturers and even a Pixel tablet is not unknown with the Pixel C and Pixel Slate still in our minds.

Aside from a picture and a brief description, we still know relatively little about this Pixel Tablet. It has a relatively thin white screen bezel and a flat glass panel. The tablet should work seamlessly with your Pixel phone and is powered by Google's custom Tensor processor.

In a video of the Pixel Tablet we see the G logo with 4 dots underneath. These look like a connector, although it is still unclear what for. The tablet has a single camera on the back and a single camera on the front. Other information is still missing, but Google promises that it is "the most helpful tablet ever".

Premium Android

Unlike the Pixel Slate, the tablet should run under Android and be premium in nature. From the front, the Pixel Tablet looks a bit like the Nexus Hub; a smart speaker with a large touch-sensitive screen. Google recently replaced the operating system for the Nest Hub. Fuchsia OS is seen as the successor to Android, although it comes a bit early for the Pixel Tablet.
