The Google Pixel Tablet was teased at Google I/O this year. Apple is expected to launch its upcoming tablet in 2023. On the Google Git website, a device codenamed 'Tangor' has been spotted that runs on a 64-bit-only version of Android 13. 

The codename is believed to belong to the Pixel Tablet. There is a 64-bit version of Android 13 that occupies less memory than the 32-bit version. Additionally, it suggests that the Pixel Tablet might not be able to run 32-bit applications.

As first spotted by Esper's Mishaal Rahman, a device from Google has been spotted on Google's Git website, which will allow users to test the device.

An update to Tangor that targets 64-bit only is listed on the site. Tangor is the codename Rahman gave to the Pixel Tablet, according to him. As a result, Android 13 could be running out-of-the-box on the tablet in a 64-bit version only.

A 64-bit version of Android 13 could reduce the memory usage of the Pixel Tablet if the tablet runs on that version of Android, Rahman said. There is also a report that the upcoming tablet will not be able to run any 32-bit applications. 

Aside from that, there is no other information regarding the Pixel Tablet in the commit. The definite launch date and specifications of the tablet have not been announced by Google.

The Google Pixel Tablet was teased by the US company earlier this year during Google I/O. In terms of power, a Tensor SoC is expected to be used in the tablet. 

A Pixel Tablet is expected to launch in 2023, according to rumors. In addition, the company has confirmed that the upcoming tablet will come out of the box running Android 13 out of the box.

The US FCC has been spotted spotting four model numbers in the Pixel 7 series on their database, according to recent reports, which confirm what we have seen so far.

The upcoming series of flagship devices is believed to support wireless charging, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth, NFC, and all four at the same time, as reported by a previous report.
