Today though, we’re talking about its colors. Right now, the Pixel Tablet is available for pre-orders — in a limited number of countries, but still — in Hazel, Rose and Porcelain. We’ve already seen the Hazel color on the latest Pixel 7 line of smartphones, but the other colors seem pretty fresh too.
But where’s the charcoal variant? Google has always had a Black variant of its devices and ever since the Pixel 6 line, it has been dubbed “Charcoal”. Well, 9to5Google has stepped forward with a leaked render of the Tablet in Black, so that may suggest that a Charcoal variant is on its way.

Or is it? Right out of the gate, we can see that something is missing: the dock. As you all know, the Pixel Tablet will be coming pre-packed with its smart dock, which can double as a pretty loud speaker. This is also how the tablet will get its extra smart home mojo, so it feels like an essential part of the package.
Well, if that is the case, could this be a brand new variant of the Pixel Tablet, which will have a lower price, because it will come without a dock? We will certainly have to wait and see about that, but it does sound like an interesting concept. Or we may just never see a Pixel Tablet in charcoal. Bummer!
