Google Pixel C tablet to launch today

It's pretty much certain that Google will launch two new Nexus phones tonight, but it has today emerged that we could be surprised by a new tablet too.

Sources told Android Police that the big G will unveil a new slate by the name of Google Pixel C at the launch event in in the US.

It'll reputedly be a 10.2-inch tablet, with a USB Type-C port.

However, despite taking its name from Google's line of Chromebook Pixel notebooks, it'll run Android 6.0 Marshmallow rather than Chrome OS. But it won't be branded as a Nexus device.

Confused? We can't we say we blame you.

Like the Pixel Chromebooks, it won't feature any other manufacturer's branding. So the Google logo will be the only one you'll see on it.

Also like the Pixel Chromebooks, it will have a screen resolution of 308ppi, and a light bar on the back showing how much battery is left.

It will go on sale in November, alongside two keyboard accessories: one in aluminium and one in leather.

The Google event kicks off at 6pm tonight. We're expecting two new Nexus phones – the Nexus 5X and 6P – as well as a new Chromecast streaming dongle.
