The upcoming Google Nexus 7 tablet is presumed to be scheduled for launch at the Google Pixel event in 2016 which will take place on the 8th of October. The device is rumored to be manufactured by Huawei and many tech bloggers believe that Google will stop using the ‘Nexus’ name and use ‘Pixel’ instead.
There are few rumors about the upcoming tablet and most of them refer to its specs. The device is believed to sport a 7 inch AMOLED display with 2560 x 1440 px in resolution and to be powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor complete with an Adreno 530 GPU. It is also said to have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage space. In terms of camera, the Nexus 7 might come with a 13 MP rear camera. It will most certainly come with Android Nougat straight out of the box.
As mentioned previously, the tablet will supposedly be manufactured by Huawei, which might make it somewhat different from its predecessor, which was manufactured by Asus.
There are also rumors about two upcoming smartphones that were initially named Nexus Marlin and Sailfish, but are now presumed to be called Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL due to Google’s alleged rebranding policy.
These two devices were also believed to have been the ones that would have showcased the new OS from Google, Android 7.0 Nougat, but things did not turn out like that in the end.
They will presumably be launched sometime in October, perhaps even at the same conference. Google Nexus Sailfish (Pixel) is believed to sport a 5 inch display, whereas the Nexus Marlin (Pixel XL) will sport a larger 5.5 inch display. Both devices are believed to be powered by a Snapdragon 821 chipset, have 4 GB of RAM, more efficient charging features and an USB Type-C port.
