Another day, and yet another leak for an upcoming Google product. This time, we’re getting a chance to see the Google Pixel Slate. Yes, that’s right, rather than seeing more information regarding the third generation Pixel phone — and let’s face it, is there anything else we really need to know thanks to all the leaks — we’re seeing Google’s newest Chrome OS tablet/laptop.
MySmartPrice has dropped images of what the Slate will look like, complete with accessories. The Pixel Slate appears to sport Chrome OS but with its own UI flair. Personally, I think it looks pretty polished. Also shown is the Slate’s stylus and detachable keyboard, the latter connecting with a pogo connector. There’s no word on what the stylus holds, but it appears to be almost pen-like.
We’re not sure of the price or if it’ll be like the Pixelbook in terms of its premium feel — or price, for that matter. There’s also the question of whether or not the keyboard and stylus will come with the tablet, or if it’ll be separate and cost extra ala Apple style. We’re also not sure when the device will ship, though, if we had to venture a guess, it would probably be within the next few weeks following the announcement.
We’re also still not sure about a few things regarding the tablet. For instance, we don’t know what’s under the hood processor, storage or component-wise. Even so, we’re just two days away from knowing for sure. With the Slate, Google appears to be unveiling a new Chromecast, wireless charger, and of course, its third generation Pixel phones.
