Android Police reports that unlike the first two Pixel-branded devices, the new Pixel C is a tablet which will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow instead of Chrome OS. The report speculates that Google may talk about its upcoming Pixel C tablet at its Tuesday event. However, it adds that the device is likely to be released in November.
Codenamed Ryu, the alleged Pixel C tablet is said to feature a 10.2-inch display with a pixel density of 308ppi. Under the hood, the tablet is likely to be powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra X1 processor coupled with Maxwell GPU. The device is said to be backed by 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM. For the build, the Pixel C tablet is said to take cues from its laptop line featuring an aluminium chassis.
The report claims that the Pixel C will look like the existing Chromebook Pixel laptop, minus the keyboard. The company is also said to be working on accessories for the Pixel tablet including a keyboard accessory which is said to be available in choices of aluminium and leather. Both the keyboards could be attached to the tablet.
Similar to the Chromebook Pixel, the Pixel C tablet is said to retain the light-bar on the back that will glow to show battery life. Some of the other features rumoured for the Pixel C include a USB Type-C charger.
The report stresses that Google's Pixel C tablet will not feature any OEM branding and will be targeted at a different audience.
