Our team has found signs that Google may be making a second Pixel tablet that will be called “Pro” and come out in 2019.
The Pixel tablet that Google promised would be released in 2023 has been highly anticipated by fans of the Pixel series ever since Google I/O. We’ve been keeping a close eye on the device’s development, and we’ve already said that it would be a Google Assistant smart display like the Nest Hub.
Nevertheless, Google has been attempting to highlight the ways that large-screen Android devices, and particularly tablets, may become useful for productivity since the initial release of Android 12L at the beginning of the year. This has been going on until today, when Google showed off new widgets for Keep and Drive that are made for tablets.
Up until now, a lot of the rumours around the Pixel tablet have suggested that Google would prefer to keep prices low by using lower-end technology. After all, its main goal is to add to the Nest Hub Max’s ability to handle video chats by giving you an extra screen for movies, TV, and other media in your smart home.
According to what we have already discovered, the Pixel tablet’s camera capabilities will not be on par with those of the most recent Pixel phones. In this hypothetical situation, the Pixel tablet would be more like the Pixel 6a than a flagship device, which would make it less of a good example of what Android tablets can do.
There is, thankfully, still hope for those who want the 2023 Pixel tablet to be a productivity machine rather than a replacement for the Nest Hub.Google released the first beta of the upcoming quarterly update for Android 13 today. Our APK Insight team discovered proof of the “tangorpro”, codenamed “upcoming Pixel smartphone,” inside.

Here is a list of all the new features in Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1.
The existence of “tangorpro” definitely suggests that Google is hard at work on a “Pro” form of the Pixel tablet. For context, we know that the Pixel tablet Google demonstrated in May is in development with the codename “tangor.” As additional proof, Google also abbreviated “tangor” to “t6,” and the current Android 13 Beta has references to “t6pro.”
With the release of the Pixel 6 Pro last year, the trend of “Pro” editions for Made by Google products started, and it has most recently been continued with the Pixel Buds Pro. The larger Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro both used the same processor, but the larger model had a better display, additional RAM, and a telephoto lens.
The Pixel tablet and its “Pro” version will not share the same rear camera sensor, which is the only distinction we can currently make between them. Unfortunately, we are unable to ascertain exactly which sensor is meant for the “Pro” model just yet. We’ve said before that the Sony IMX355 sensor, which is also used in the Pixel 3 and Pixel 6a, will be used in the Pixel tablet that costs the least.
Beyond that, we have no other information on the alleged hardware upgrades on this premium tablet. It’s probable that this “tangorpro” will also have a better display and more RAM, similar to the Pixel 6 Pro. There’s even a chance that the entry-level tablet will use the first-generation Google Tensor from last year, while the “Pro” version would use the future Tensor G2.
The strongest hint we’ve had regarding pure productivity came from Rich Miner, the “CTO of tablets” for the Android team, who described a vision of “tablet-first” experiences. Building for devices with dedicated styluses is a big part of this, and we’ve previously speculated that Google might include USI (Universal Stylus Initiative) support in its Pixel tablet series.
If Google really wants to introduce a “Pro” Pixel tablet, fortunately we won’t have to wait too long to find out more because the firm plans to unveil new Pixel and Nest devices during an event in October.
Tell us in the comments what you’d want to see Google prioritise for a high-end Pixel tablet running Android.
