At Google I/O 2023, the search giant made a couple of announcements across their products including some new Pixel hardware like the Pixel 7a, Pixel Tablet, and Pixel Fold.
First up is the Pixel 7a, which has a 6.1-inch FHD+ display at 90Hz (compared to 60Hz on the Pixel 6a).
The 7a is powered by the Google Tensor G2 chip like the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
For cameras, the Pixel 7a has a 64MP main lens, 13MP ultrawide and a 13MP front camera. There’s also Super Res Zoom up to 8X and Real Tone support.
Google says the 7a’s 4,400 mAh battery should last up to 24 hours and supports fast 20W wired charging and a first for the A-series, wireless charging.
For colours, the Pixel 7a comes in Charcoal, Snow, Sea and Coral (a Google Store Exclusive).
The Pixel 7a is available today for $599 CAD ($499 USD from the Google Store, Best Buy Canada and Amazon.ca.
Back at their fall hardware event, Google teased the Pixel Tablet.
The tablet features an 11-inch LCD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. The device comes with an 8MP front camera.
Powering the Pixel Tablet is the Tensor G2 chip with 8GB of RAM. Storage options include 128 GB and 256 GB.
Other specs include Wi-Fi 6 support, Bluetooth 5.2, Ultrawide Band chip and Google Cast. There are also quad speakers and 3 microphones.
Battery life on the Pixel Tablet is around 12 hours of video streaming.
What’s unique about the Pixel Tablet is that it comes with a dock that basically turns the tablet into a Nest Hub Max. Meaning you’ll be able to use it as a smart display.
Google will also be selling the dock separately in case you want an additional one to dock your Pixel Tablet in different rooms.
Colour options for the tablet include Hazel (which has a black bezel) and Porcelain (which has a white bezel).
The Pixel Tablet is launching in June for $699 CAD for the 128 GB and $799 CAD for the 256 GB.
The Pixel Tablet is up for pre-order today from the Google Store, and Best Buy Canada.
The official case for the Pixel Tablet retails for $109 CAD and the Charging Speaker Dock is $179 CAD.
Google is now getting into folding phones with their first foldable, the Pixel Fold.
The foldable has a 7.6-inch AMOLED display on the inside and a 5.8-inch AMOLED display on the cover screen.
Powering the Pixel Fold is the Tensor G2 chip with 12GB of RAM and two storage options, 256 and 512GB.
For cameras, the Pixel Fold has a 48MP main lens, 10.8MP ultrawide, and 10.8MP telephoto. There’s also an 8MP camera on the inside.
The battery in the Pixel Fold is 4,821 mAh. There’s also 30W wired charging and wireless charging support.

Google has said at this time, the Pixel Fold will not be released in Canada.
If you’re in those countries, you can pre-order the Pixel Fold from the Google Store. It’ll come in two colours, Obsidian and Porcelain.
