Someone’s selling a Google Pixel Tablet months before its release date

2023 will see Google launch its first Pixel-branded tablet in years, but the device has already shown up on the Facebook Marketplace — complete with its docking station. The Pixel Tablet is being priced at $400, and it’s likely to be a prototype if it’s as real as it appears.

While the company had sworn off making tablets and Chromebooks of its own, a shift in the winds and the rise of foldables mean that Google wanted an affordable flagship tablet of its own to push its large screen vision, hence the Pixel Tablet. It’s no iPad, sporting a plain and utilitarian design, and the docking station means it can even take the place of a Nest Hub.

The Marketplace listing shows our first images of the Pixel Tablet running the large-screen optimized Android 13, as well as the aforementioned dock and charging cable. Though Google had shown them off already via renders, these are the first live images we’ve seen so far.

Google’s Pixel Tablet is not the only Pixel product to leak this way. The Pixel 6 Pro popped up on sale in Nigeria’s computer village prior to launch, while the Pixel 7 also showed up on Facebook Marketplace and eBay. There aren’t many details hidden about the Pixel Tablet, though. Google’s product page already reveals most, with a leak earlier in the year adding some finer detail.

The Pixel Tablet is expected to release next year around Google I/O, if not earlier. It should be powered by the same Tensor 2 chipset that’s available with the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, plus the recently-leaked Pixel Fold. Other specs include an 11-inch display, up to 256GB of storage, and support for Wi-Fi 6.

Google has just released the first public beta build of Android 15, marking an end to the developer-focused test phase. The beta version’s release also means that Android 15 is finally in a state where it can be tried by the masses without people having to worry about too many bugs leaving their phone in a sorry state.

The first beta version of Android 15 doesn’t introduce a ton of new features, as most of the notable additions have already appeared in the Developer Preview builds. Google’s blog post, however, mentions the following features as the key highlights

Whatever you do, don’t buy the Google Pixel 7a right now

Google I/O 2024 is just a month away. We expect Android 15 to be shown off, and some hardware, too. In previous years, Google has used I/O to show off the latest for its Pixel A-series device. This year should give us the Google Pixel 8a, and we might even get a peek at what’s coming with the next-generation Pixel Fold 2.

The Google Pixel 7a launched last May, so it’s almost a year old now. At the time, while the 7a was mostly solid, the higher price made it a bit of an awkward recommendation, considering its specs and close positioning to the higher-end Pixel 7.

The Google Pixel 8a leaked again, and now I’m nervous
Pixel 7a back.

Just about everything regarding the Google Pixel 8a has leaked at this point. We've seen high-quality renders of the phone, its specs are everywhere online, and its release date is all but guaranteed. A new Pixel 8a leak appeared online today, and after seeing it, I'm feeling a bit nervous.

TechDroider on X (formerly Twitter) shared two hands-on photos of the Pixel 8a today, including pictures of the front and back of the phone. The back of the phone showcases a black color with a matte finish that looks quite good. We also get a clear view of the two rear cameras, the Google "G" logo in the middle, and the rounded corners.
