We’ve got less than 24 hours left until Google’s big hardware unveiling, and there’s a lot to look forward to. Now, in the eleventh hour, Evan Blass has published a fresh Google Pixel Slate leak that gives us a new look at the device.
The best gifts for Android users
We caught a closer look at the Pixel Slate in a leak over the weekend which gave us a closer look at the hardware. Today’s leak adds on to that by giving us a better look at the Pixel Slate, not as a tablet on its own, but docked on its official keyboard.
This Pixel Slate leak shows exactly how Google’s official keyboard for the Slate will connect to the tablet, revealing a folding design which isn’t dissimilar to Apple’s iPad Pro keyboards. As noted in a past leak, the keyboard itself connects over a set of pins at the bottom of the tablet itself.
Further, we get another look at the software here. Previous images of the Pixel Slate either showed an outdated version of Chrome OS or the app drawer. This render, on the other hand, shows a blank homescreen. There’s a row of apps along the bottom and the shortcut for the app drawer. Up top, there’s also a search bar which includes the Assistant logo. This is something we’ve seen on some Pixel 3 leaks and makes sense given Google’s continued focus on Assistant.
