Pixel Slate is Google’s new detachable Chrome OS tablet

At its annual Made By Google event, the tech giant has launched the Pixel Slate tablet alongside the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. The convertible Pixel Slate is the first tablet from Google in three years, and its big USP is that it can be switched from a tablet to a laptop by using the detachable keyboard. This is Google’s first tablet to run on Chrome OS and it offers up to 10 hours of battery life, dual front facing speakers, touchscreen smart display, and supports Pixelbook Pen. As with other recent Chrome OS offerings, it supports Android apps from the Google Play store.


The Pixel Slate is priced starting at $599 (roughly Rs. 44,400), and is available in Midnight Blue colour option. Google is offering YouTube TV for free for three months on the purchase of Pixel Slate. Google Pixel Slate keyboard will need to be bought separately, and it is priced at $199 (roughly Rs. 14,700), and lastly the Google Pixelbook Pen is priced at $99 (roughly Rs.7,300). The Pixel Slate will go on sale later this year in US, UK and Canada through Google stores, and other partnered outlets. The New Adobe Acrobat comes preloaded on the Pixel Slate.


The newly launched Pixel Slate has round edges and sports dual front speakers. It features a 12.3-inch (2,000×3,000 pixels) low temperature polysilicon (LTPS) LCD ‘molecular’ touchscreen display with 293ppi pixel density and 6 million total pixels. It is powered by eighth gen Intel Core m3, Core i5, i7, or Celeron processors paired with 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB of RAM options. It comes with 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB inbuilt storage options.

Coming to the Pixel Slate Keyboard, it connects to the Pixel Slate at the bottom, to convert it into a laptop. The folio at the back doubles up as a stand, and it allows for ‘infinite adjustability’ to suit your viewing angle needs. It features a full-sized backlit keypad, rounded ‘hush’ keys, a full-featured trackpad, and doesn’t need any charging or pairing.
