Is this an early look at the Google Pixel Tablet’s UI?

Google will launch its Google Pixel Tablet in 2023 and while we know it is poised to be a two-in-one smart screen that can also become a smart home hub when docked on a speaker stand — what isn’t known yet is how the UI will look and feel on the tablet.

Leaked images recently showed what Google Assistant and Discover could look like on the tablet. Now, on its relatively low-profile Workspace Updates blog (opens in new tab), Google has just provided a GIF which may give us an early glimpse of what the upcoming Pixel Tablet’s UI will look like.

The update shows the company’s latest efforts in ensuring a “top-class user experience on large screen devices” and shows the arrival of keyboard shortcuts for the Keep app.

But as 9to5Google (opens in new tab) notes, the GIF above is 674 x 421, which scales up to 2,560 x 1,600. That’s the resolution that the Pixel Tablet will reportedly offer (opens in new tab) when it’s released next year. 

Notably, a post (opens in new tab) on the same blog from July showed another tablet UI update in Google Sheets for tablets. Its resolution? 512 x 320. If you multiply that by five you also reach 2,560 x 1,600.

It’s worth noting that other Android tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 also share the 2,560 x 1,600 resolution, but whether or not this was screen recorded directly from a Pixel Tablet prototype or something else, it still gives us an idea of how Google may want things to work.
