According to Kuba Wojciechowski, the Google Pixel Tablet has entered an important phase in its developmental journey called the EVT phase. Short for Engineering Validation Test, the EVT phase is typically preceded by the prototype phase, which involves the company trying out several design and software variations. By the time a product reaches the EVT phase, the company has nearly finalized the design. The key objective of this phase is to check how well the final design holds up to the rigors of normal usage. As part of this, Google will put the Pixel Tablet through multiple tests to ensure the product is ready to move to the final production phase. Wojciechowski also confirms that some Google Pixel Tablet units have been shipped to India for EVT validation — indicating that it will be among the list of countries where the product would go on sale.
In addition to revealing the current development status of the Pixel Tablet, Wojciechowski also revealed some of the device’s rumored specs. He claims that the Pixel Tablet could be offered in 128GB and 256GB variants and will also feature a 10.95-inch display. While there was no mention of crucial aspects of the display, including the display type and resolution, the report does state the possibility of it getting a USI 2.0 stylus. The rest of the features of the Google Pixel Tablet continue to remain shrouded in mystery. However, with a planned 2023 release, there is still some time for additional details of the product to leak.
