Google’s Chrome OS tablet to be called Pixel Slate


Though we’ve heard numerous rumors about Google’s mysterious Chrome OS tablet, a new one is confirming the name of the device. David Ruddock of Android Police tweeted that “Google Pixel Slate is the name of Google’s first Chrome OS tablet.” This lines up with previous rumors regarding the name of the device, and Ruddock stated that “this is from a source I trust,” lending further credence to the name.

The Pixel Slate has been less leaky than the Pixel 3/XL, but we do know a bit about what to expect. The device will reportedly feature a 2400×1600 screen, which matches the aspect ratio of the Pixelbook. Additionally, it should feature two USB Type-C ports, a fingerprint scanner, and connector pins for use with detachable keyboard, docks, and other accessories.

Google is set to release the Pixel Slate on October 9, alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
