Google Pixel Slate teased ahead of October 9th event

We have seen many conflicting leaks making us believe that Google might launch an entirely different device at their event.

There are no further details for the device as of this moment, However, we are hoping to find out more at Google's event tomorrow.

Likely scheduled for unveiling during Google's October 9 hardware event is the Smart TV kit, a new bundle that includes both a Google Home Mini smart speaker and an unannounced third-generation Chromecast. Well, thanks, apparently, to an infinite number of leaks, we do not know a lot of things. And now, we learned even more about this new Google Pixel Slate as some renderers leaked on MySmartPrice.

The Pixel Slate will be presented together with the Pixel 3 smartphones on the evening of October 9th. The Pixel Slate can be turned into a laptop thanks to the pogo pin connector on one side. On the inside, the phones will be identical in terms of hardware and performance. The smaller Pixel 3, however, looks like a shrunken version of last year's Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will support wireless charging for the first time.

What can we expect on Pixel Slate? They're also expected to feature a second front-facing camera for wider selfie angles - though some theorizing that it might be for an upgraded portrait feature or some type of Face ID-esque facial recognition.

Now Engadget has got its hands on a Pixel 3 XL before the official launch. The Google Home Hub will support voice assistant, and it will also come with built-in support for YouTube and other Google apps. The new Pixel Slate will be available in four flavors, with Intel Celeron, m3, i5, and i7 processor options. The keyboard fold also serves as a casing as well as a stand for the tablet.

Apart from that, Pixel Slate will most probably be just a Wi-Fi enabled tablet and not a GSM/CDMA data enabled tablet. Overall, this is hugely promising, as the Pixel 2 had one of the best shooters in the business. The main camera can also record 4K 30fps.
