Google’s Pixel 3 XL isn’t the only thing getting leaked ahead of the company’s big event next week: images of the company’s Pixel Slate tablet have also surfaced.
Rumors of Google’s first Chrome tablet have circulated in recent weeks. MySmartPriceposted several images of the device today, which show off the device using Chrome OS and a detachable keyboard. The site reports that it appears to have a 3:2 aspect ratio, comes with a pen, and features a pair of cameras, one in the front and the other at the back. It also features a USB-C port on the side, speakers on each side, and appears to be missing a headphone jack. Finally, MySmartPrice points to a pair of black sections on the back of the tablet, which they speculate could be for cellular connectivity.
Pictures of the detachable keyboard differ from the images that leaked back in September from bluetooth keyboard manufacturer Brydge, which showed off a detachable keyboard with square keys and which connected to the tablet via Bluetooth. However, it’s possible that Brydge’s keyboard could be a mockup or third-party device, rather than one made by Google. This new set of images show off a keyboard with circular keys (which matches a short video from Chrome Unboxed from last month) that has a physical connector, and which features a dedicated Google Assistant key.
