Google this week announced three new devices during its Google I/O developer conference: the Pixel 7a, the Pixel Fold, and the new Pixel Tablet.

The Pixel 7a comes with notable upgrades like a 90Hz refresh rate and Google’s new Tensor G2 processor, while the company’s first foldable phone is dubbed “the thinnest foldable phone on the market” with a large 7.6-inch OLED display.

And we finally got to see the tablet Google has been teasing since last October. Google says the Pixel Tablet can get up to 12 hours of video streaming, and it comes with a Charging Speaker dock that can convert the tablet into a make-shift Nest Hub smart display.

Here’s how you can pre-order and buy all of Google’s newest devices — while snagging some discounts, too.
