The 10.2-inch tablet, which comes with a magnetic keyboard, will run on the latest Android operating system Marshmallow. The new C will have a screen resolution of 2650 x 1800 pixels and a pixel density of 380 ppi (pixels per inch). It will support 500 nits of brightness.

In terms of processing power, the C will run a Nvidia X1 quad-core processor along with a 3 GB RAM unit.

"We wanted to design a product that would give a great experience of touch and type and hence we designed the Pixel C," said a Google spokesperson.

The magnetic keyboard, which will be available as an accessory for USD 149, connects to the tablet via Bluetooth. Google said that the keyboard can go without charge for two months. Interestingly, the keyboard which works as a front cover for the tablet charges from its battery.

Earlier, Apple had launched a 13-inch tablet with a keyboard and a stylus to compete with other existing tablets in the market especially the Microsoft Surface which claims to give laptop-like productivity on the go.
