Google Pixel Tablet Certified by the FCC, With UWB Support, No Wi-Fi 6E

We’re getting one step closer to the launch of the Google Pixel Tablet, as the device has been teased for a year now. The product may well debut at next month’s I/O event, but it could also be kept for a fall unveiling. What’s certain is that today it has reached the FCC.

Having been certified by the authority, the device is revealed to support UWB, but also to lack Wi-Fi 6E. This may mean we have a lesser CPU inside, a not so new chipset, maybe a Tensor. This is a pretty big deal, since it’s the first Google Android tablet since the Nexus 9.

It uses Wi-Fi 6 instead of Wi-Fi 6E, which is by the way available on the recent Pixel smartphones. The tablet’s docking station leaked last month, revealing that the device will have quite a few dock-enabled features, not unlike those you’d find on a Nest machine.

The Pixel Tablet is said to adopt the same Tensor G2 chipset that powers the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. The UWB feature on the device may be used for a Tap to Transfer system, similar to the hand off media feature on the Apple HomePods. UWB is also important for Google’s Finder Network, used to more precisely locate lost items.

The FCC also revealed that the device will charge at 18W.
