Google is taking another shot at a Pixel tablet, with a high-end detachable meant to rival the iPad Pro and Surface Pro. The Pixel Slate is a Chrome OS tablet with a detachable keyboard cover that turns it into something very closely resembling a laptop. It can get fairly high-end, too, with 8th Gen Intel processors on the inside that go up to a Core i7 paired with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The tablet has front-firing stereo speakers, 8-megapixel front and rear cameras, and a 12.3-inch screen that Google says is faster and more efficient than a traditional LCD. It also includes a fingerprint sensor built into the power button, which is a first for a Chromebook. Google product director Trond Wuellner said the Pixel Slate will deliver “a modern computing experience.”
