The upcoming Nexus 7 is a device that was initially believed to be the one that would have showcased the latest OS from Google – Android 7.0 Nougat. However, Google opted not to showcase the OS on a Nexus device at its launch, in August. Instead, it just rolled out directly to the newer gen Nexus devices.

The launch of the OS was supposed to coincide with the release of the latest Nexus device from Google, but since it did not happen like that, many tech bloggers wandered about the fate of the anticipated Nexus device.

As a result, many rumors and leaks surfaced and the latest one of them comes with a lot of information regarding the upcoming device’s specs.

It is also believed that the upcoming device will no longer be named Nexus, but Google Pixel. It was also believed up until recently that the device actually had two models, a smaller and a larger one that were codenamed Marlin and Sailfish. Now, it appears that these two devices will be named Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL.



The rumored specs for the Google Pixel refer to a 5 inch display with 2560 x 1440 px in resolution and a Snapdragon 821 chipset. It is also presumed to come with two cameras out of which there will be a 13 MP primary camera. The Google Pixel XL, on the other hand, is believed to sport a 5.5 inch display with a higher resolution than the Google Pixel (2560 x 1600 px). It will also come with a 15 MP primary camera.

Both devices will supposedly have 4 GB of RAM and the Google Pixel will have 32 GB of internal storage space, whereas the Pixel Xl will have 128 GB of internal storage space. They will also feature a USB Type C port and perhaps a special headphone port.

Naturally, both devices will come with Android Nougat straight out of the box and they are rumored to be scheduled for release on the 4th of October.  It is also speculated that they will cost at most $449.
