Forget Nexus tablets, Google has a 10.2-inch “Pixel C” slate in tow
It came in as a bit of a surprise that Google won’t be offering a tablet PC in this year’s line of Nexus devices; the software giant has chosen to produce two smartphones instead. However, for the tablet-loving Android fans, all hope is not lost for your Android 6.0 Marshmallow tablet from Google this year.
We’ve received information that Google is expanding the Pixel Chromebook lineup in order to accommodate a new device that will come in place of this year’s skipped Nexus tablet. What will be the name of the product? AndroidPolice reports that it’s going to be called “Google Pixel C.”
Google Pixel C is said to be packing a 10.2-inch display while a detachable keyboard — which might conceal extra battery juice — will offer the device a laptop feel when the user wants to go on full productivity mode.
With a reported 2015 launch date, the alleged tablet/laptop is purportedly carrying a NVIDIA X1 quad-core processor and Maxwell GPU alongside 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The screen is said to be sporting a pixel density of 308 PPI with a brightness that can be tuned up to 500 nits. The device will be booting on Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box instead of Chrome OS found on other members of the Pixel family.
Finally, we’ll keep our ears wide open to know whether Google will make mention of the said device at the Nexus 6P and 5X launch event tomorrow. For now, it’s important to digest everything you’ve heard with an adequate dosage of salt until we have an official confirmation.
