Amazon prematurely posted a listing for the Pixel Tablet in Japan, as reported by Android Central (via WinFuture). The Pixel Tablet specs include a Tensor G2 chip — the same chip that powers the Pixel 7 series and the upcoming Pixel 7a — and a 10.95-inch LCD display with 2560 x 1600 pixels of resolution.
Other listed specs include 8GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of storage and support for Wi-Fi 6E. The Pixel Tablet also packs quad speakers, three mics and a USB-C 3.2 port. A 27Wh battery powers the tablet.
In terms of cameras, a 8MP sensor is on the front and back, complete with f/2.0 aperture and an 84-degree field of view. In addition, the Pixel Tablet is apparently compatible with USI 2.0 standard styluses, but we don't believe one will be sold by Google itself.
The listing shows a price of 80,000 yen, which works out to $590. But that doesn't mean that will be the U.S. price for the Pixel Tablet.
How the Pixel Tablet stands out vs. the iPad
The Pixel Tablet is trying to stand out vs. the 10th gen iPad with its unique docking system. The charging dock keeps the tablet charged up when not in use and it offers a wide range of smart display features.
You can use the Pixel Tablet to get hands-free help from Google Assistant from across the room, enjoy your favorite photos and control your smart home devices, such as your lights and smart thermostat.
Google spent a lot of time tuning the magnets in the dock just right so it's fairly easy to remove when you want but stays securely locked in place. And you get richer sound too when docked.

Any idea on the battery life of this product? I've previously owned 3 different Chromebooks each lasting a little over a year before the power gave out & there's no replacement battery, you buy the whole enchalada!Reply
I’ve been using a pixelbook (2017) for 5 years. Yeah the battery lasts about 4 hours now. Not great but not terrible. Are you using the original charger? It shouldn’t die that quick.Gryphon56 said:Any idea on the battery life of this product?

Yes. These were all Chromebooks, used with OEM chargers which they came with & all died in about a year & a half.Waxpatch said:I’ve been using a pixelbook (2017) for 5 years.
