Someone is selling Google’s Pixel tablet on Facebook Marketplace

This is one of the only promotional photos that Google has officially released for the Pixel tablet.
Google’s Pixel tablet isn’t supposed to come out until 2023, but we’re already seeing a rumored first unit up for grabs. This leak comes from Twitteralthough this is just a collection of screenshots from a Facebook Marketplace post that claims to sell the announced but unreleased Google Pixel tablet.
The title of the announcement does not mince its words:
***NEW***PRE-RELEASE!!! GOOGLE PIXEL 2023 TABLET WITH SPEAKER DOCKING STATION
The screenshots show a fairly nondescript tablet-like device with a Pixel Launcher-esque interface. It runs Android, not the OS you see on Google’s smart displays. There’s a magnetic speaker dock included in the bundle, but when the tablet is on its own it looks like someone lobbed the existing Google Nest Hub’s screen (but you could say the same of what we have seen in official Google announcements). The power supply looks like the one that powers the Nest Audio.
A screenshot of system information is also included in the Twitter feed. The best part is that it’s upside down so I had to download it and rotate it to read anything. There is around 256GB of storage on the model featured in the Marketplace listing. And when the settings panel is open, you can see the ChromeOS-like dock which contains the most recently used apps at the bottom. This is a good look at Google’s vision of Android 13 in tablet mode, and I’m pretty sure it’s the Hub mode mentioned in Android 13 QPR1.
The photos in the leak are quite blurry, so you can’t read the text or make out the icons without squinting. However, I zoomed in on the rotated photo and noticed that there were around 15 hours and 54 minutes of battery left on the alleged Pixel tablet, or around 70%. That’s already better than some older generations of iPads, according to Gizmodo’s internal benchmark charts.
Nobody will know anything for sure until the official launch. Technically, you can buy this device from Facebook Marketplace if you’re willing to risk $400 to find out early. Maybe you’re keeping everything you get for yourself on this vacation.
