Shocker: it looks like a tablet.

The Pixel Tablet is supposed to launch sometime this year — Google I/O in May feels like a pretty good venue! — and ahead of its eventual release, somebody captured a video of the tablet in real life at Google’s “Shaped by Water” installation currently happening as part of Milan Design Week (via 9to5Google).

In the Instagram video from Saori Masuda (you’ll need to browse over to the very last video in the gallery), you can see many Google and Pixel devices laid out along a table, including some Pixel Tablets, Pixel Watches, different versions of Pixel Buds, and Pixel phones.

For the Pixel Tablet specifically, the video doesn’t reveal a lot that we didn’t already know, especially because Google has already revealed what the tablet and its charging dock will look like. Perhaps the most significant new information is the colors on display, including a pink-ish coral, a gray / white, and a darker gray (with what looks to be a black bezel around the screen instead of white). Maybe we’ll be able to buy the tablet in those colors (and, according to 9to5Google, a missing fourth color) when it’s finally released.

9to5Google also notes that a privacy switch to turn off the microphone and camera, which it reported on last week, is not present in these Pixel Tablets on display.

We’ve collected some screenshots from the video in the gallery below.


Google didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment. But I feel like the chances are pretty good that it appears at Google I/O on May 10th, especially since a device that seems suspiciously like the Pixel Tablet was recently certified by the FCC. The show could feature a lot of other device announcements, too, including the heavily leaked Pixel 7A and the long-rumored Pixel Fold.
