Google Pixel Slate with Chrome OS, detachable keyboard leaked

Google Pixel Slate with Chrome OS, detachable keyboard leaked

The event is scheduled to start at 11 AM ET on Tuesday, October 9th. At the time, we heard a Pixel 3 XL unit was selling for around $2,000 on the black market.

While the Mountain View-based company has not confirmed whether there is indeed a tablet on the way this week, the Pixel Slate is reportedly designed as a companion device to last year's Pixel Book notebook. You also get several links to Google support pages guiding how you can possibly fix your phone. The Tweet reads, "So you think you know".

First of all, it will be the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that are sure to be unveiled. It's certainly bigger with a few notches here and there. At the back, the tablet comes with a rear camera module.

From the photo above and Engadget's early hands-on, both Pixels will have dual-front facing cameras.

The Pixel 2 phones previous year were manufactured by HTC and LG.

So here's what we already know about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which is pretty much everything.

Google's upcoming Pixel 3 series of smartphones might be one of the most-leaked devices in recent history. Both devices are expected to feature a more current display design with slim bezels and rounded corners. The new Google Home Hub will come with a 7-inch screen with the speaker behind it, and it will compete directly with the newly launched Amazon Echo Show. This new tablet was previously being referred to as "Nocturne", and it is going to come with Intel's Core i7 processor with up to 16GB of RAM. That being said, the Google "Bonito" smartphone rumor had surfaced recently, suggesting that the company may announce tiny smartphone as well, a phone that is smaller than the Google Pixel 3. The Pixel Slate can be turned into a laptop thanks to the pogo pin connector on one side.

After all the leaks, it's not surprising to know that Google will also reveal a new Chromecast dongle just like past year. Recently, a Redditor posted an image of a new Chromecast device he claimed to have bought from a local Best Buy.

Whatever the details, it seems a good bet the Pixel Slate, an official keyboard accessory, and a new Pixelbook Pen will break cover on October 9.
