The Pixel Slate is the new flagship device which is designed to work on the Chrome OS. It will come with 8MP front- and rear-facing cameras as well as dual front-facing speakers and a 293 ppi display, and can be unlocked via fingerprint sensor like as in MI. Each variant of the device will also come with an Intel processor, from a Celeron on the cheapest to a 8th Gen i7 on the most expensive.
