Acer Chromebook Spin 11 was not the only product the company showcased at Bett Show in London. Acer is also expected to launch world’s first tablet running Google’s Chrome OS. While the launch date of the tablet is not yet known, the tablet was spotted at the same event in London.

Twitter Alister Payne got his hands-on the Acer-branded Chrome OS tablet at the Bett Show in London. The tweet, now deleted, read, “Grade 1, 2, 3 look what’s coming your way… Not official released but a ChromeOS tablet,” Chrome Unboxed reports.

The tablet appears to have thick bezels on all four sides. The image shows a front-facing camera, and Acer’s logo, which is placed on the bottom bezel. In terms of specifications, the tablet is expected to flaunt a 7.9-inch display with 4:3 aspect ratio and 1024×768 pixels resolution. Under the hood, we can expect RockChip’s RK3399 chipset.

In terms of camera, there might be a 5-megapixel camera on the front, and an 8-megapixel camera on the back. Reports also suggest that the Acer ChromeOS might come with a stylus with a special storage slot in the tablet.

Meanwhile, Acer also announced its new Acer Chromebook Spin 11 at Bett Show in London. The two models, the CP311-1H and the CP311-1HN will go on sale in the US starting March. Acer Chromebook Spin 11 features a convertible design with a 360-hinge and 11.6-inch touchscreen.
