Google working on a Pixel C?

google-chromebook-pixel-2-540x334Rumours are afoot that Google is to launch a new Pixel device in the coming months, not running Chrome OS. It will be a 10.2-inch Android tablet with detachable keyboard and marketed as the ‘Pixel C’. A new Pixel tablet is said to be designed by Google, made from high-grade parts and might be arriving in the next couple of months.

The Pixel C, code named Ryu, will have a 10.2-inch display with 308ppi and a super-bright back light capable of 500 nits. Inside there’s an NVIDIA X1 quad-core processor and Maxwell GPU. This is supplemented by 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

The build quality will continue to feel like a Pixel, which have all offered metal designs and gorgeous screens. The tablet will look like the existing laptops, just minus the keyboard.

A little bit of brand confusion to shake things up. Google has a line of Android tablets called Nexus, the Pixel name has always been synonymous with Chrome, why meddle with that… unless is dual boots ChromeOS and Android 6.0?
