Despite being announced over six months ago during the Pixel 7 series launch, the Google Pixel Tablet has yet to hit the market. However, new information has recently surfaced, shedding light on the device’s storage options and expected price points.
As the anticipated Google I/O 2023 event draws closer, leaks and rumors surrounding the event are beginning to surface. Among the speculations is information about the Pixel Tablet, which reportedly will feature 8GB of RAM and will be available in two storage options. According to a tweet from WinFuture’s Roland Quandt, the two storage options for the Pixel Tablet are reportedly 128GB and 256GB. This aligns with storage sizes offered by Pixel phones and is notably higher than the base storage options available for Apple’s non-Pro iPad lineup.
It is anticipated that the Pixel Tablet will be released in up to four different color options, with the availability of certain colors depending on the country. Google has already showcased two color options, including a green tablet with a black frame and a beige tablet with a white bezel. It is possible that the beige option may be called “Porcelain,” while the green color may be named “Hazel,” based on information from the recently leaked Charging Speaker Dock.
Google Pixel Tablet: 128 or 256GB, "Porcelain" or "Haze", pricing looks like 600-650 Euros.— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) April 19, 2023
Based on the latest information, the 128GB base model of the Pixel Tablet is expected to cost around €600-€650 in Europe. However, it’s not yet clear whether the listed prices will include the charging dock that was teased by Google, which allows the tablet to function as a smart display device. As previously reported, the dock was briefly listed on Amazon for $129 before being removed.
Assuming that the report is accurate, it is worth noting that the rumored price range of €600-650 for the entry-level 128GB Pixel Tablet in Europe would be higher than the cost of the Pixel 7, which currently retails for €649 in the same region. In the United States, the Pixel 7 sells for $599. As a point of reference, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, which features an 11-inch display with a 2560 x 1600 resolution, 8GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, and an S Pen stylus, is priced at $699 for the 128GB storage option.
Rumors surrounding the upcoming Pixel Tablet suggest that it will sport a 10.95-inch screen with a resolution of 1600 x 2560px. It’s also expected to feature a Tensor G2 chipset and support 18W charging. The device will come equipped with Wi-Fi 6 and UWB connectivity, and both front and back cameras will have 8MP Sony IMX355 sensors. Additionally, there may be an optional stylus pen available for the device.
