Google releases factory images for Pixel Tablet

0 31


Today, the Google Pixel Tablet became widely available, and now Google is releasing the factory images for the new tablet. The codename is ‘tangorpro’ and you can find them now on Google’s developer website. These factory images include Android 13 with the June 2023 security patch.

When you unbox your Google Pixel Tablet, you’ll notice that your tablet is running on TD2A.230203.028, and there should be an update out of the box, that takes you to TQ3A.230605.009.A1, that also brings the June security patch. This does also include the QPR3 update that came in June.

You can download the factory images here. You likely won’t ever need them, but still nice to see Google releasing them for when we might need them.

Why do I need a factory image?

You likely will never need the factory image for a device like the Pixel Tablet. Unless you plan on doing some tinkering and installing custom ROMs and such. A factory image will allow you to flash it onto your tablet and go back to the factory settings. Flashing a factory image will erase everything on your Pixel Tablet.

Google says that the Pixel Tablet will get guaranteed updates until June 2026, and another two years of security patches. So it should get updated to Android 16, and possibly Android 17 if Google is feeling generous. That’s not quite as good as some of the other Android OEMs out there – like Samsung, who promises even longer. But it’s better than it used to be.

Your Pixel Tablet dock will automatically update when needed, as long as your tablet is docked. Seeing as that’s how the dock gets an Internet connection, this makes loads of sense.

So there you have it, Google releasing the factory images on launch day. It doesn’t get much better than that, now does it.
