Google is set to unveil its latest hardware and software innovations at the annual Google I/O event this week. Ahead of the event, Google has already announced three of the expected pieces of hardware including the Pixel Fold, Pixel 7a and Pixel Tablet. The Pixel Tablet is expected to feature an 11-inch screen, the same Tensor G2 found in the other devices, 8GB of RAM and either 128 or 256GB of storage. It will also have pen support and cameras capable of capturing megapixel images. The tablet is expected to launch on June 20.

Large Language Model

Google is expected to showcase the latest version of its large language model, PaLM 2, at the event. The model, codenamed “Unified Language Model”, is capable of generating content in 100 different languages and has been used to analyse writing, coding and maths tests. Also expected is a new version of Bard and AI-based upgrades to search. A “Workspace AI collaborator” is also on the list of features designed to leverage models for Google Docs and Gmail.

The Pixel 7a is Coming

The Pixel 7a is due to be released on May 11, the day after the Google I/O event. It is expected to feature a 6.1-inch device with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 64-megapixel rear camera. The Tensor G2 will return, bringing with it software features it enabled the first time around.

The Pixel Tablet Too

The Pixel Tablet is rumoured to have a unique spin on the Android tablet with a design that would effectively turn the system into a giant Nest dock. The device is expected to be announced at the Google I/O event, although there are no further details on the product. Google has not released a tablet device in a few years, so it is expected that the company will offer something unique to users.

Some Real World Applications

The Google I/O event will feature CEO Sundar Pichai making the case that the company continues to lead the way in the world of artificial intelligence. There will also be a focus on practical, real-world applications like mobile imaging and dealing with customer service. It is expected that Google will have an unusually consumer electronics-focused keynote with a deluge of rumours aligning.
