Specifications

Hardware

The Pixel C is powered by the Nvidia Tegra X1 octa-core system-on-a-chip, which is based on ARM's "big.LITTLE" architecture: four cores are faster, while the other four are slower and more power efficient.[4][5] It features 3 GB of RAM and models are available with 32 GB and 64 GB of storage. The Pixel C features a 10.2 inches (260 mm) 2560×1800 resolution IPS panel with a pixel density of 308 ppi.

An optional keyboard accessory is available for the Pixel C. The tablet can attach to the keyboard magnetically via a hinge (to use as a laplet), or the keyboard can be attached to the front or back of the tablet for storage. The keyboard connects via Bluetooth and is battery powered; when the keyboard is snapped to the front of the tablet, it can be charged inductively by the tablet.[2][6]

Software

The Pixel C shipped with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.[6][7] Android 7.0 "Nougat" was released for the Pixel C, among other devices, on August 22.[8] Google released Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the Pixel C (among other devices) in December 2016.[9][10]

Android 7.1.2 was released in March 2017; it added the Pixel Launcher and System UI, as well as a redesigned recent apps menu with a new grid-based layout.[11][12] However, the Pixel Launcher that the Pixel C runs is reportedly separate from the launcher the Pixel phones run,[13] even though they are visually extremely similar, if not identical.

Google released Android 8.0 Oreo (without the Treble feature for device independent system updates)[1] for the Pixel C, among other devices, in August 2017.[14] Android 8.1 Oreo was released for the Pixel C, as well as some other devices, on December 5, 2017.[15]

Google Guice

Google Guice (pronounced "juice") is an open-source software framework for the Java platform released by Google under the Apache License. It provides support for dependency injection using annotations to configure Java objects. Dependency injection is a design pattern whose core principle is to separate behavior from dependency resolution.

Guice allows implementation classes to be bound programmatically to an interface, then injected into constructors, methods or fields using an @Inject annotation. When more than one implementation of the same interface is needed, the user can create custom annotations that identify an implementation, then use that annotation when injecting it.

Being the first generic framework for dependency injection using Java annotations in 2008, Guice won the 18th Jolt Award for best Library, Framework, or Component.
